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.

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.

Great story, annoying narrator

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

One of my favorite authors and a good story but just didn't enjoy the narrator. I know that's a personal choice for everyone, so don't let that stop you from trying the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Darame

Would you be willing to try another one of James Patrick Cronin’s performances?

No

Did Fires of Nuala inspire you to do anything?
