The long awaited and much anticipated sequel to 2011's The Sentinel Mage. The Fire Prince continues the saga of Prince Harkeld, Innis the shapeshifter and the imperiled Seven Kingdoms.
The Seven Kingdoms are in the grip of an ancient and terrible blood curse. Thousands have died. Thousands more will die. Only one man can end the curse.
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.
I have been waiting for this book for over 3 years! I first read The Sentinel Mage back when it first released and loved every single aspect of it. It is an incredible epic fantasy series that just ticks every single box (in fact most of the characters are in their early 20s so you could even kind of call this NA :P). I have been looking forwards for a long time to find out what will happen next to all the characters and I'm so glad I don't have to wait much longer!
What are you waiting for this week?
