Lymond is travelling a desperate path across the Ottoman Empire of Sulemain the Magnificent in search of a kidnapped child, a search that may place him in the grip of his enemies. In the subtle and savage game of treachery, enslavement and torture, Lymond is compelled to make an unthinkable choice - and face the darkest ambiguities of his own nature.

Lymond's back but where's The Game of Kings Book 1

Would you listen to Pawn in Frankincense again? Why?

Having anxiously waited for what seems to be forever, finally The Lymond Chronicles!

Audible, please make the The Game of Kings (Book 1) available as quickly as possible! These books should be savored in the order they were written and as I have read them in the "old-fashioned" way atleast once a year since they were originally released in print.

It is so wonderful to have the books currently available read by such an accomplished narrator. Beautiful inflexion; realistic and measured pace just as I would have imagined Ms. Dunnett to have meant.

So very pleased!! I will keep these books in "My Library" for always!

Uneven narration

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Dorothy Dunnett's historical novels are peerless and I have waited a long time to listen to them. I was, therefore, astounded that the narrator did not pronounce Lymond's name correctly for the two books previous to this one. While he now pronounces Lymond correctly, he is inconsistent in the beginning. He also has a strange way of interpreting the accents for all of the characters except the Scots and the Irish. This is particularly disconcerting when listening to his interpretation of Philippa's character. Nonetheless, I recommend this audiobook, and will continue to listen to it for years to come.
