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.

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 :/ ).
