Description

Book one in the magnificent Empire Trilogy by best-selling authors Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts.

Enter the mysterious and exotic world of Kelewan.… Mara, the youngest child of the ancient and noble Acoma family, is about to take her pledge of servitude to the goddess Lashima when the ceremony is disrupted by news of her father and brother's deaths in battle.

Despite her grief, as the only surviving member of her house, Mara must now take up the mantles of Ruling Lady. But she soon discovers betrayal at the heart of her family's loss, and the Acoma's enemies have brought her house to the brink of utter destruction.

Mara, an inexperienced political player, must draw on all her wit, intelligence, and cunning to navigate the ruthless Game of the Council, regain the honour of House Acoma and secure the future of her family. But with assassins waiting around every corner, it might take everything Mara has simply to survive.

Daughter of the Empire is the magnificent first book in The Empire Trilogy by Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts.

Those who loved Daenerys Targaryen will love Mara

I read the book when I was a teenager when it was published way before the game of thrones. Not your usual sword and sorcery it is full of political intrigue, dynastic clashes and murder set in a world of magic and exoticness. If you like strong yet vulnerable women pick this book.

A thrilling tale

The narrator performed excellently, with a rhythm and cadence that was most satisfying.

The plot and writing were also great, and I cannot wait to start on the next volume.

loved books,love autiobook

the story is as good as the first time. since mara is female it is a welcome change for female readers in the whole riftwar saga. the whole riftwar saga books by raymond are the best I ever read and THESE are my favourites because it is catching with more politic game than war (there is also war but not in this book...later). of course,give it a few chapters to enter kelewan!

she speaks in a gentle voice. though she changes voices for men/women and shouts a little if someone shouts,it does not wake you up when you listened in bed...(like dobby or mr vernon in harry potter :/ ).

buy it -if you enjoy english 🤗
