about

Sebastian Orwell did the only thing a smart wizard could do when he stumbled upon the wounded Crown Prince: he healed him and dumped him in a tavern where he could continue not being Sebastian's problem. Unfortunately, the prince isn't content with being alive, and he hunts Sebastian down to thank him personally. Not only is Sebastian stuck with the prince's unwanted affections, he's also confronted by growing evidence linking the assassination attempt to someone from his father's past.

Lord Orwell is a lot of things: thief, liar, drunk, and all around horrible father, but Sebastian knows he's no murderer. In order to prove it, Sebastian has to keep the prince alive long enough to discover the truth-a task made considerably harder because the idiot prince prefers wooing Sebastian over securing his own survival. On top of everything, Sebastian needs to save the day without revealing his magical powers and the real reason he hides his appearance.

Sebastian had no intention of playing the hero, but whoever is stirring up shit in his country will pay for destroying his quiet life.

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to like this...but I didn't. I wanted to like this. The reviews for it were great, the plot sounded interesting. And then I read it. I am half suspicious that this was written by a thirteen year old who just discovered caffeine. Plot? I dunno, there may have been one sneaked in there, but I think it got lots something in the endless dialogue, countless characters, and from the literal walking in circles the characters do. Like, Sebastian is home, then in the woods, then the city, then home, then the castle, then the city, then home then the castle, then home, then the castle, then home.... oftentimes without actually mention that any travel took place. Though, I might have missed that while trying to figure out who was who, considering every last character is named. Was it really necessary to name that one customer who was mentioned for all of one page? Oh, but if you get confused by all the family and friends and evildoers, there is a list of all the characters at the end. As others mentioned, there was no world building, no explanation of the world's magic, and just a brief mentioning of the fact that cross-species mating is a thing....who wouldn't want a half-troll for an inlaw?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A really good read!! I bought this online , since I couldn't find it in store and it just arrived yesterday. I devoured it in one night. I really liked the preview and the rest of the story did not disappoint!! I really hope that there's a sequel, even if it's just fluff... Now, Characters.... I loved Sebastian, and Turren is just such a cutie, especially the parts ( though few) written in his pov. I didn't really like the family sometimes, and I wish they got along better, but oh well.
