The fugitive Osgaardan prince, Harkeld, is that man—whether he likes it or not. But the bounty on Harkeld’s head is high. He has outrun his father’s soldiers, but he can’t outrun the assassins who seek him—Fithians, trained in the art of killing. Even the Sentinel mages who guide and guard him are no match for Fithian steel. Faced with the ever-present threat of death, Harkeld must learn to use his fire magic. Or die.
Meanwhile, dark plots are unfolding in Osgaard’s gold-tiled palace, snaring Princess Brigitta and those she loves. And in the eastern kingdoms, young orphan Jaumé journeys with a band of mysterious and dangerous fighters, heading north for a purpose he does not understand.
This is a complicated book, not the book itself, oh no, that is simple, but how I like it. Why do I even like it? I think it's because I could read it fast, it was simple and just pure escapism. No need for my brain to get involved. Cos the history, meh, the characters, meh. See my dilemma?
Harkeld is quite the arrogant piece of shite isn't he? They are trying to help you! Gods, you really can be an asshole!
Right, he is with the witches trying to save the world. One of them Innis, has the hots for him. Innis, well I liked her, but she was a bit too interested in him
Then we have the kid Jaume *yawns* boring
Then it jumps to Brigitte's chapters, which totally was the best ones. She has an evil brother, an evil kingdom and there is danger there.
All while people die like flies. I mean come on. You guys are supposed to be good! Not die and die and die and die.
And still I read on, and will read the last one. Go figure.
he is hot
