The storyline is quite interesting enough. I got a bit miffed with Annana's character though - there's something annoying about a character that persistently asks stupid questions and does really stupid things, runs around screaming when something happens and acts like a petulant child.
She does redeem herself with bravery and the occasional bout of intelligence though....all in all, an okay story and a very good performance.
couldn't make up my mind whether it should have been a teen story or a young adults novel though........

While many of the ingredients in Ms. Clarke's story aren't particularly novel, such as a young lady fleeing from an arranged marriage, having to throw her lot in with an apparent bad guy and being chased across the globe by true evil, she weaves them together and binds them into a tale that is both original and enthralling.
As I often do, I switch between the Kindle and the Audible version. Tania Rodrigues really nails the narration. She deftly jumps between Ananna and her erstwhile assassin, Naji. Pacing and annunciation are perfect even while she vocally portrays the drama of the various situations the characters inhabit. This is the first book Ms. Rodrigues narrates that I've heard; she's first rate. (As of this post, Assassin's Curse seems no longer available on Audible. I hope that's rectified soon.)

Not a complete waste of time, I guess it could be an ok book for something to listen to in the background.
The narrator sounds like she's trying to be a 10 year old girl which is at odds with the character who has a love interest.
