Publisher's Summary

The world on the other side of the rift: Kelewan, a land seething with political intrigue and deadly conspiracies. Following the opulent panoply of Daughter of the Empire and the dazzling pageantry of Servant of the Empire comes the resounding conclusion to the Empire trilogy.

Besieged by spies and rival houses, stalked by a secret and merciless brotherhood of assassins, the brilliant Lady Mara of the Acoma faces the most deadly challenge she has ever known. The fearsome Black Robes see Mara as the ultimate threat to their ancient power. In search of allies who will join her against them, Mara must travel beyond civilization's borders and even into the hives of the alien cho-ja. As those near and dear to her fall victim to many enemies, Mara cries out for vengeance. Drawing on all of her courage and guile, she prepares to fight her greatest battle of all - for her life, her home, and the Empire itself.

Exceptional!

I've read these books when they were first published and the Audible versions do not disappoint! Mara of the Acoma is one of the most intriguing characters I've ever encountered. Her Spy Master Arakasi is a delight and the world building of Kelewan reminds me so much of Clavell's 'Shogun'. This is a worthy trilogy that stands the test of time!

Superb fantasy with a twist

This trilogy started strong and just kept getting better! The feminine perspective and Asiatic society provided enough novelty to be interesting while still being a traditional political high fantasy at it's core. It was really well done and a pleasure to listen to.

Awesome book but a LOT of words mispronounced.

I love this book. I've read it a few times and decided I would get this version for road trips. I'm amazed at how many words were mispronounced. I don't mean character names or words in a fictional language that are open to interpretation; I mean normal English words that have definite correct and incorrect pronunciation. it was distracting, became frustrating, ultimately a bit disgruntling.

Splendid Conclusion

Excellent writing and story that still need to be lived today. Living for others and not our own selfish pride and ambition is something those in positions of leadership/governering would benefit from adhering to

For the good of the Empire!

I loved this trilogy. It is a bit of a departure from traditional fantasy. More cultural and political that most. The details made it interesting.
