Book two in the magnificent Empire Trilogy by best-selling authors Raymond E. Feist and Janny Wurts.
Nobody knows how to play the Game of the Council better than Mara of the Acoma. Through bloody political manoeuvring she has become a powerful force within the Empire; but surrounded by deadly rivals, Mara has to be the best simply to stay alive. But Lady Mara must contend with battles on two fronts: in the hotbed of intrigue and treachery that is the court of Tsurani; and in her heart, where her affection for a barbarian slave from the enemy world of Midkemia leads her to question the principles by which she lives.
Servant of the Empire is the second in Feist and Wurts' wonderful epic trilogy - one of the most successful fantasy collaborations of all time. The trilogy concludes with the third book, Mistress of the Empire.

Heavy going political story

I started this series with Magician which I enjoyed. However, this Empire series is more about politics in a weird society than the fantasy that first drew me in. I found it heavy going and difficult to keep track of all the clans and characters. Not my favourite audio book.

can't wait!

I got so caught in the tale I cried and hoped and felt joyful then grieved as Mara dealt with each twist and turn, it's so well written, I love that the characters are full with faults which just make the experience better.
