If they can dispose of Heshai, Seedless will perish and the entire city will fall. In the middle is Otah, a simple laborer with a complex past. Recruited to act as a bodyguard for his girlfriend's boss at a secret meeting, he inadvertently learns of the Galtish plot. Otah finds himself as the sole hope of Saraykeht: either he stops the Galts or the whole city and everyone in it perishes forever.

Audio Performance adds confusion
Any additional comments?
I think Neil Shah does a great job except that there is no indication when the PoV changes. Within each chapter you might have several different perspectives taking over but unfortunately where the books likely have (I'm assuming here) a visual indicator such as a triple line space or double line with ellipsis - this audiobook simply continues reading with barely a slightly longer pause than a normal paragraph break.
This can actually probably be blamed on the studio rather than Neil Shah - I don't know how much input he'd have on editing.

Worth the Wait
I was super excited when I was browsing Audible and noticed this series was finally in audio format. Having already listened to Abraham's newer series, Dagger and Coin, I had high expectations for this older acclaimed series. I wasn't disappointed. Abraham's style is fairly unique, he writes fantasy but without the usual heroes and villains. If you are looking for melee or magical combat this book doesn't have it, it does have some great characters, plot, and suspense.
Best of all you won't have to wait long for the other books in the series, all are scheduled to be released before the end of 2014.
