You need to take a quiet break and listen to this book. I liked the contrast between "Queen" Sayora and Hillbilly Elizabeth.

I loved the way Lothaire growls their names on the audio. I loved the beginning of this story as we got to know the events that shaped Lothaire's view of the world. Yea, I just loved this one

Maybe Queen Sayora gets better but currently I think she's a bitch and beneath Lothaire quite frankly - Love Elizabeth. She's a hoot. Yea - I love listening to Lothaire - really he can say anything to me lol
