“Love the tone in this book. It’s reminiscent of classic literature, starting light and as the Prince matures, the tone grows progressively darker.”
“Has a younger, lighter Game of Thrones vibe.”
Prince Taelor Pevrel believes he is an only child until, at the age of twenty-two, he meets his half-sister, Alene, who just learned the story of her true parentage. She arrives in the kingdom of Minear to meet her father, King Naelor, and to connect with her newly discovered family. Taelor and Alene form an immediate bond with each other. However, King Naelor, cold and proud, takes a whole different attitude towards Alene, considering her a threat to the future of the Pevrel dynasty.
Determined not to let Alene have a claim to his throne, Naelor attempts to assassinate her. When Taelor surmises that his father was behind the heinous act, tragic events ensue which lead him to forsake his title and to flee Minear. Accompanying him on his journey are his loyal servant, Leygon, and a cheeky knight, Lance. They face a variety of obstacles on their travels and have a fateful encounter with a group of witches who chant a spine-tingling prophecy that will haunt Taelor for the rest of his days.The perfect read for fans of George R. R. Martin, David A. Wells, Sabaa Tahir, and Morgan Rhodes.
