Publisher's summary

Now the great Mindsword is in play. Murat of Culm with the help of Coinspinner has located the Blade. Knowing Mindsword brings blind devotion to whoever wields it, Murat plans to keep the Sword sheathed until he can gift it to the beautiful Princess Kristin of Tasavalta to win her free affections and to make reparation for a grave past transgression. The power of the Sword and the intentions of the Murat’s son and advisors make for twists and turns in Murat’s once honorable plan.

Prince Mark, consort of Kristin, having neglected of his home duties while in the service of his father, finds himself in a struggle for his wife, his kingdom and his loyal friend.

I gave up. I could not listen to her anymore.

I have been listening to this series from the beginning, and have hated the narrator from the beginning. This story finally broke me. I could not finish listening to it, and will not finish the series, sadly.

During the last book, the bad guy Murat was not a whiny British character with a stick up his butt. He was in this one. She changed the way that she read him, to the point that I wanted to smack her. And Kristen? If she was anything like this when Mark met her, how did he not stab her in the throat and bury her in the desert.

I am sad that this woman was allowed to narrate these books without anybody actually listening to what she did, how she pronounced words, etc. She totally killed this series for me.
