This was the first audiobook I had ever listened to. It seemed a little strange at first but after awhile it seemed not much different from reading an actual book, (maybe because even when reading print or ebooks I imagine the characters having different voices). I was able to picture the scenes in my head no different.
The story was mostly political and less so fantasy but I was expecting it to be that way and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I was very much filled with joy when I found out this was going to be the first book, I for some reason thought that it was just a stand alone.
I hope that the protagonists have the chance to grow their relationship further so that they can truly and whole heartily love one another, with as little a wall between them as possible. Although at the same time it saddens me for Zivah is slated to die even if they somehow survive the impending war that is soon to fall upon them. That is unless they find a cure for the sickness.
Speaking of the sickness, wow it got me. I can't think of any illness that is like it (maybe there is but I'm just not aware of its existence). It saddens me greatly that such a horrible disease effects people. The people in the rose marked compound, wow. I have so much sympathy for them.
Learning that the prince turned Emperor had poisoned his men was something I had suspected. I have a feeling that the disease itself could have been concocted by the physicians in the emperor, maybe so the lands that they conquered were easier to gain control over when a sickness has killed so many people in the first place. The reason that it effects the loyal subjects being that it just got out of hand, especially with its easy way to pass it along to someone else. Controlling a dangerous weapon such as a disease can lead to the harm of unintended targets.
Wow, I rambled, main thing is that I enjoyed the book. I will definitely read the next one, still debating honestly if I want to got the audio version or get a print copy. Sucks that I'll most likely have to wait at least a year until the next book.
