Summary

Kidnapped at an early age, Ansset has been raised in isolation at a mystical retreat called the Songhouse. His life is filled with music, and having only songs for companions, he develops a voice that is unlike any other. But Ansset’s voice is both a blessing and a curse—for it reflects all the hopes and fears of his audience, and, by magnifying their emotions, can be used either to heal or to destroy.

When it is discovered that his is the voice that the Emperor has waited decades for, Ansset is summoned to the Imperial Palace on Old Earth. Many fates rest in Ansset’s hands, and his songs will soon be put to the test: either to salve the troubled conscience of a conqueror or drive him, and the universe, into mad chaos.

Songmaster is a haunting story of power and love—the tale of a man who would destroy everything he loves to preserve humanity’s peace, and a boy who might just sing the world away.

Review Quotes

“Card understands the human condition and has things of real value to say about it. He tells the truth well—ultimately the only criterion of greatness.”

Gene Wolfe

“Stefan Rudnicki narrates this novel with the power that the prose demands…Rudnicki, when called upon to do so, sings lines with an understated grace that effectively suggests the great abilities of the characters doing the singing.”

AudioFile

“The audiobook is narrated beautifully by Stefan Rudnicki. Mr. Rudnicki conveys an introspective and measured performance that suits the novel perfectly…The recording is up to the usually high standards that we expect of a Blackstone audiobook.”
