Just an avid reader. Mostly SF/Fantasy, some hobbies, paranormal, urban fantasy and lighter, fluffier things.
The subtitle for this book is "A Valiant King's Struggle to Save His Country, His Dynasty and His Love."
And valiant he is. The author is setting forth a clearly heroic tale. Interesting times making potentially for a good story ("His Love" has not yet entered the picture).
I am feeling kinda force-fed what a valiant -- if naive -- young man he is. Author doesn't need to try quite so hard as it's distracting me from getting into Richard's character.
