Publisher's Summary

On the planet Nuala, the scam that beguiling free-trader Silver has come to join has just been blown to the skies, along with the throne lines of three sovereign nations.
The last male heir of one throne line, Sheel Atare, is unprepared to rule, but he's quick to seize allies wherever he can - like the beautiful and dangerous Silver. Now Silver has to choose: stick to the scam, or get sucked into the struggle to save Nuala - and Sheel Atare's life.

Not Bad, But Not Great

Fires of Nuala has been with us a long time; published in 1988, rereleased in 2010 and hit Audible in Dec 2013. I was intrigued by a plot that includes assassinations, political intrigue and the promise of both mystery and action. Also, one of the main characters is a beautiful woman who is a con artist.

I found that I had to put in many long hours before the book became interesting and had trouble identifying with the characters. Way too perfect. Overall, not as exciting as I had hoped, but the entertainment value is decent.

I understand the comparisons now

I now see why people would compare this story to Dune, though it currently lacks the utter density of Dune, it does bring a Dune like flare to the title in its first book. Yet, on its own, I liked the story overall. It was a good listen/read. I would recommend it wholeheartedly to any fan of the Dune series or if you just like more dense and intrigue heavy titles.
