Publisher's Summary

From the author of Legion and the number-one New York Times best-selling Stormlight Archive comes an action-filled novella about privilege, culture clash, and expectations.
God-Emperor Kairominas is lord of all he surveys. He has defeated all foes, has united the entire world beneath his rule, and has mastered the arcane arts. He spends his time sparring with his nemesis, who keeps trying to invade Kai's world.
Except for today. Today Kai has to go on a date. Forces have conspired to require him to meet with his equal - a woman from another world who has achieved just as much as he has. What happens when the most important man in the world is forced to have dinner with the most important woman in the world?

Sanderson is the man, the man who invents a new world with each story. I will admit that this one was not as unique as some of his others and I did not love it, like most of his others, but it was not a wasted listen. It could be the prequel to a bigger novel, and I would be interested.

Rummel is like usual, great.

A Perfect Five Star!

Brandon Sanders is a fantastic author, and one of my favorites. Whether he is writing a short story or full length novel, his stories are always an adventure with a great plot, and characters.

I really enjoyed this story, and the ending blew my mind.

I've listened to Christian Rummel narrate other audiobooks and he always does a great job.

This was a five star story, and I recommend it to any Sci-Fi fan.

Neither story nor narration on a par with other titles

I really enjoy most of Brandon Sanderson's works. This particular production left me somewhat cold. The narration was lacklustre after the other stories done by Michael Kramer.

The plot was mildly interesting, but the characters and worlds were not intriguing.

Overall, this serves only to highlight the great strength of the other works.

Fantastic short story

Loved the twists that Sanderson managed to get into the story. Bit short, but still delightful. Would recommend to any Cosmere fan!
