Publisher's Summary

A fast-paced fantasy prequel in the world of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, whose gripping conclusion, A Shattered Empire, released September 13th, 2016.

Ten years before A Crucible of Souls...

In the bustling capital city of the Mahruse Empire, Felicienne Shyrise spends her days as a talented investigator, taking on stolen goods and missing person cases and the occasional murder the city guard are too incompetent - or too lazy - to resolve.

During the nights she hones her skills playing Dominion, a board game almost as complicated as life itself. She dreams of making a name for herself and becoming the richest woman in the Empire.

But when she's roped into a murky investigation by a First Adjudicator to the immortal Emperor himself, her life is thrown into disarray. Will this be the perfect opportunity to showcase her skills and make valuable connections, or will her future now be in the hands of political powers that can never be denied?

Working against her will, and afraid of the consequences of refusing the commission, she uncovers evidence that points to an attempt on the Emperor's life. Felicienne rapidly finds herself a target and must use her considerable wits to uncover the plot of an unseen enemy who always seems to be one step ahead of the game.

    "A little too obvious"

    While I liked the world in which the story took place, I could not help but find the plot a little slow and its development to be a little to obvious. The main revelation in the story was not a surprise and the mystery was not much of a mystery since it was clear who was the antagonist since about the middle of the book.
    I'm still going to give the rest of the series a try, but overall I must admit to being a little disappointed with this one.

    "an interesting story"

    it was a good introduction to the series, I liked that it was entertaining and deep in some manners, it was pretty cool actually.

    the story was pretty well done, a little politic warfare here, death, intrigue and interesting heroes and heroines all well packed in a fantasy action based world.

    "Fantastic novella full of rich detail"

    Listening, I was transported to another world. Expert pacing/delivery by the narrator. Being a prequel, I now intend to buy the other books in this series, so intrigued am I by the story.

    "Good book and looking forward to the others."

    This was a good book and I'm glad I read it first. Now I'll start the rest of the series and I hope it will give me a better understanding of the other books. Good read

    "Need to read before other books in series."
    Where does At the Sign of the Crow and Moon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Wish I read it before the other books in the series. It was good narration and explains more so when you start the first book it makes sense.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narrator is awesome. Don't think he could of done better. Sound Effects would work.

    "Pleasantly surprised!"

    I wasn't too sure what to think of this book at first. But I was so entertained by this world Mitchell Hogan has created that I ended up purchasing the entire series! There are parts that drag on and the stories in the story can get a bit long winded, but overall, each time I finished a book, I couldn't wait to start the next one. I would recommend this book to all my friends and family. There's plenty of action, excitement and drama to keep you wondering what's going to happen next!

    Any additional comments?

    I liked the detective angle, something we see more in steampunk or contemporary. the dominion game intrigued me no end, sounded much like three dimensional chess. one annoyance, i disliked the lead character female voice, but not enough to take away from the story. That said, the narrator, when speaking 3rd person was AMAZING.

    Story
    "Overall very good, after a rough beginning"

    The first few scenes abruptly switched, with time lapses between them until the main story started, and then there were no more gaps. It was as if there were two different writing styles, or as if Hogan couldn't be bothered with details in the beginning. I wish hew had either skipped those early scenes, since he obviously didn't think they were important, or else took the time to flesh them out.

    After that rough beginning, though, it was a satisfying story, and I liked learning more about Felice.

    Story
    "Felicienne Revealed"

    At the time of writing this is free so I was certainly never going to have any complaints about it. It is actually an interesting piece of character background for one of the main characters in the series and for that reason alone is interesting. Consistency with the main storyline is reasonable though somehow at this time she is considerably more talented at Dominion to suit the plot.

    In itself it's also a decent short story with the same narrator so if you are enjoying the Sorcery Ascendant series and would like a little more of Felicienne then this should do the trick.

    It's a real bonus of the modern reading platforms that it is now so much easier for writers to publish such "extras" so bravo to Mitchell Hogan and of course Audible for making this one happen.
