Publisher's Summary

When Shai is caught replacing the Moon Scepter with her nearly flawless forgery, she must bargain for her life. An assassin has left the Emperor Ashravan without consciousness, a circumstance concealed only by the death of his wife. If the emperor does not emerge after his hundred-day mourning period, the rule of the Heritage Faction will be forfeit and the empire will fall into chaos.

Shai is given an impossible task: to create - to Forge - a new soul for the emperor in less than 100 days. But her soul-Forgery is considered an abomination by her captors. She is confined to a tiny, dirty chamber, guarded by a man who hates her, spied upon by politicians, and trapped behind a door sealed in her own blood. Shai's only possible ally is the emperor's most loyal counselor, Gaotona, who struggles to understand her true talent.

Time is running out for Shai. Forging, while deducing the motivations of her captors, she needs a perfect plan to escape....

A narrative that can kindle your imagination.

I would like to start off with an appreciation to the Graphic Audio production (My first listen to the production). The experience was surreal. Given the details in Sanderson's books, (though this is just the 4th one I'm reading or listening) the narratives did pure justice to the details as it was vivid enough to make me go through it scene by scene as though it was a film. Kudos to the team.
The story started off in a slow pace (at least for me) which later seemed to be necessary to understand the details and started picking pace as the protagonist starts going about the task in hand. The parts of the interaction where the protagonist got into the details of understanding the subject was very well narrated.
Now this book has pushed me into exploring more of the Graphic Audio's content. I somehow feel I will not be disappointed.

I love the story, but not the graphic audio

I have loved The Emperor's Soul by Brandon Sanderson and I'm sure some will like this graphic audio version, but I don't care for it. The sounds distract from the story and I don't think the main narrator is that great either. I may be biased because I have come to love Kate Reading and Michael Kramer who are incredible narrators. I would suggest purchasing their version of the audiobook rather than this one, unless you just really love graphic audio.

A Chinese western vision of story creating change.

A retelling of a Earth story set in the world at large in the time people forget and are remade. The story has long term consequences to your understanding of what is known.

Awesome

Brilliant story as it was but made exceptionally better by this performance. Absolutely must listen, especially if you're a Sanderson/Cosmere fan
