I am not ashamed to say, I did not read the prequels to this Book 3 of the Empire Trilogy - Daughter of the Empire and Servant of the Empire. However, perhaps it's because I did not, that I found the Mistress of the Empire and the characters to be so unexpectedly fascinating and witty. Perhaps if I had read the other Books, I may not have been so frequently lost with the numerous names/characters, understood a little more of warring factions/houses and the true extent of the political and emotional turmoil experienced by the characters; I might have also appreciated the fantasy world so vividly described. Notwithstanding, because the authors possess such astounding skill and intellect, reflecting ever so often to events or issues that arose in the previous Books, I was able to absorb and thoroughly enjoy this Book 3, appreciating the different dynamics to the gripping tale; that of politics, altruism, economics (trade, commerce, slavery), war (fighting/action), culture ( rich, ingrained, different and competitive), romance, loss, loyalty, epic fantasy (featuring magic and mystical creatures), etc - this Book/Trilogy is so "all-encompassing", there's something to keep everyone engaged!!. I do not think reading the end of the Trilogy first will put me off reading the other Books, if anything, I'm now feeling compelled to start it from the beginning and will be excited to read the last Book again!!

I've read every book written about the twin worlds of midkemia and kelewan, and loved them all. I've thoroughly enjoyed listening to the narration of these books, reliving the stories, the twists and turns of the plot. Ms Rodriguez had done a fantastic job of setting the tone and telling the stories of some of my most favourite characters in the whole series. thank you so much.
Great series, sorry to finish. Characters strong and knowable, seductive plots, clear and clever performance.
Entertaining and well narrated. Wraps everything up nicely but by far the most involving of the 3.
