When I first began this book I thought I would grow to love it. I did grow to be okay with it, but I was never truly that fond of listening to it. I think the reason was because I did not like the main character, and I just simply couldn't feel that bad for her. She was not endearing or inspiring and I am sad to say that I only grew to dislike her. None of her traits as a main character won me over, nor allowed me to sympathize with her plight to get out of a marriage... Mostly because she didn't have that rough of a time and she came off as kind of snobby the entire book. I love mead's other works and am a huge fan, but this just was not as good as I had hoped.

First, let me say that I loved Kristen Sieh's performance and voice so much, I will listen to anything else she narrates for the rest of my life.
As for Richelle Mead's story- simply pure escapism! I love our heroine, I love everyone she comes in contact with and the villian, pretty much love to hate!
I don't typically enjoy fantasy, but the fact that these are countries that don't exist and religions she's created didn't matter one bit. The were completely real to me and I loved the adventures.
I hope there's a follow up book, I'd adore another adventure with these characters.

Definitely a good listen. Don't let the aristocratic accents put you off, they soon mellow a little and the story is very enjoyable.

Richelle Mead has exceeded my expectations as always. The plot was brilliant, the setting was mesmerising. The only problem I had with the reading was that the British accent was often over exaggerated, even by countesses terms! Aside from that I loved it, and cannot wait for the next installment in the series.
