Publisher's Summary

Magic and murder engulf the realm of Kelewan. Fierce warlords ignite a bitter blood feud to enslave the empire of Tsuranuanni. While in the opulent Imperial courts, assassins and spy-master plot cunning and devious intrigues against the rightful heir. Now Mara, a young, untested Ruling lady, is called upon to lead her people in a heroic struggle for survival. But first she must rally an army of rebel warriors, form a pact with the alien cho-ja, and marry the son of a hated enemy. Only then can Mara face her most dangerous foe of all in his own impregnable stronghold.

An epic tale of adventure and intrigue. Daughter of the Empire is fantasy of the highest order by two of the most talented writers in the field today.

Excellent narration brings an old favorite to life

I'm always hesitant to try the audio version of a favorite book. I was so excited to see this series on Audible and am relieved to report that Tania Rodrigues narration was excellent with voice and pronunciations as I have always heard them in my head. I look forward to listening to the other two in the series.

Finally!

I've waited for Audible to get this book for a long time and it is very well done. So good to revisit this classic fantasy novel - full of intrigue and with a quite different world from your typical fantasy novel with a compelling main character and a plot that is always moving. Great read!

I am glad I did not give up

This is a great book. The narrator struggles with the ? teleprompter ? in the beginning. She pauses too long and inflects portions of sentences in strange ways. She does a great job, only be beginning is rough. I am surprised that they didn't re-take the first chapter. If it bothers you, keep going, the problem goes away. Rodrigues is very good with dialog and character voices.

Great series, disappointing narration

Always loved this series and was so excited to see it finally available on Audible. The narration is a big disappointment however, as this series is very Asian in feel and the narrator is British. Poor voices that all sound the same, as well as slow monotone speech patterns that make the story feel more dull than it is. Still a good listen.
