Publisher's Summary

When Shamur Uskevren, the matriarch of one of Sembia's oldest and most powerful merchant families, is tricked by an angry wizard into an assassination attempt on her own husband, her family is thrown into turmoil. Once the truth is discovered, she and her husband must struggle to save their family and stop the sorcerer. But in her anger, she has forgotten one thing: in the world of intrigue and deception, of shadows and lies that is Sembia, nothing is ever what it seems.

Painful to listen to

The story itself is well-written and fits neatly into the series. However, the narration was simply atrocious. The narrator sounded like she was reading a romance novel. I did everything I could to cover as much of the book as possible reading it on my Kindle so as not to subject myself to the narrator.

In summary my recommendation is to read this book and not listen to it.

Fun fast paced story.

Story was fun and fast paced. Narrator was OK, but sometimes seemed not familiar with the genre.
