DNF @ 90%

Me: So your slave lover is 6’5, wide shouldered, with red gold hair, striking blue eyes and a tongue that disrespects you in public at every turn?

Mara: Yes! He’s so hot I forgive him everything. I decided to have his baby and pass it off as Hokanu’s.

Me: And what does Hokanu look like?

Mara: Oh, 5’10 with really dark skin and up-tilted black eyes. Slender. He’s totally rich and important, the baby will have it made!

Me: Yeah, uh genius.

I lost respect for the main character and many secondary characters rubbed me wrong. This sequel did not fulfill the promise of book one.

An utter and complete let down after epic trilogy

Very interesting premise. Very interesting characters. Very interesting setting.

Still a failure. Why?

Because it's a melodramatic, dragged-out, estrogen-fest, worthy of the worst drug store romance novels.

This trilogy is related to the original in only the most superficial ways. It replaced everything else with nearly endless blather about what this person is thinking, followed by what that person is thinking. On and on and on!!

I was able to grind through the first of this set, but called it quits part way through this one. I kept feeling the need to shout "JUST GET ON WITH IT ALREADY!!", and that is unacceptable.

I did get my Audible credit back though, so at least there's that.

Change and Growth hurts!

Here is a character who meets challenges and surmounts changes in her life. It is a roller coaster of an emotional ride with Mara. She reminds me of my big sister Karine.

The best story ever

I truly believe that the Daughter of the Empire and Servant of the Empire are the best fiction stories ever written. LOVE it!

All time favorite

These three books about Mara are my all time favorites!!
I’ve read and listened to them many times and they are always as delicious as they were the first time I read them

Better description

This book deserves a much better description. This is 30 hours of brutal killing and plottting and heartbreak and triumph… watching the world of Kelewan as it intermingles with the world of Midkemia…. as Mara continues her struggle to bring her house back to greatness, while learning that the good of the empire might be more important than honor. Superbly told by Tania Rodrigues

An excellent continuation of a great series

If the Riftwar Cycle was a macro look at the grandest stage of conflict, this series is a micro look at a single stage, and I thoroughly enjoyed the contrast.

I strongly disagree with the previous reviewer that this is a romance - its an enjoyable look into one families struggle for power. Sure, there is a romantic relationship, but it's the mechanism for changing hearts and minds, not the plot.

I will note that the recording has audio issues where it "fuzzes out" at times!

The Empire

Continues the saga with grace. Gives hope for the capricious times we live in and humanity's propencity toward violence and war as the ultimate answer.
