Couldn't stop listening.

I truly enjoyed Behind the Throne. I was hooked from the first chapter. Hail is a tough as nails woman but she’s shown to have emotions and vulnerabilities without them making her seem weak or whiney. The mutual trust between Hail and her tracker turned bodyguards develops slowly and realistically as the book progresses. The political intrigue along with the character development and world building propelled the first half of the book. The author described the Indranan Empire’s founding and it’s matriarchal society and Hindu inspired ceremonies as well as Hail’s past little by little as needed for the story without the pages long information dumps so often found in this type book. The last half of the book is more action packed but I think the time spent developing the plot and people make their peril and sacrifices more intense.
I thought the narrator was superb. She was perfect for this book. Since the ruling body of the Indranan Empire are descendants of India her Indian accent enhanced the characters and brought the story vibrantly to life.
