Publisher's Summary

When the jealous high priest of Enki murders the king during a holy festival and stages a takeover of the palace, Crown Prince Ammon-shur must flee for his life with nothing more than the clothes on his back. His faithful bodyguard, Balashi, saves him from capture and death at the hands of his enemies, and together the two make their way to the ancient city of Uruk, home of the ancient and powerful temple of Inanna. Ammon goes to the temple to seek allies that he might recruit to his cause to unseat the high priest of Enki and retake his throne. While at the temple, he meets Iltani, the fascinating and beautiful high priestess of Inanna. Ammon scarcely gets to know her before discovering that she is enmeshed in her own struggles against the members of the temple council, who maintain her as a powerless figurehead. Far from finding aid for his own cause, Ammon finds himself promising to help Iltani free herself from the influence of the temple council as well as to help her investigate a darker plot....

WOW and WOW

If you could sum up The Prince of Eridu in three words, what would they be?

Jesse Hudson has an amazing ability to tell a story. His book captures your imagination right from the beginning and doesn't let you go until the very end and then it just leaves you wanting more which doesn't always happen with every book you read.

What other book might you compare The Prince of Eridu to and why?

I would compare this book to the Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and The Assassins Apprentice by Robin Hobb and The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson just to name a few other books that are at the same level of storytelling as this book is at.

What does Austin Vanfleet bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

You are really able to feel the emotions and the complexity of the characters through Austin's voice and intonations which adds additional depth to the story. Austin really does an amazing job in this book. He is a world class narrator!

Who was the most memorable character of The Prince of Eridu and why?

Balashi. by far Balashi!

Not what I expected but delightful nonetheless

This is not a typical historical fiction novel, depicting actual events re-imagined since so often there is very little historical detail for an author to go on. Rather it is a tale of derring-do and good humored interactions between the characters, each of which is non-stereotypical, with an exciting and interesting plot. Not great literature or a grand saga but a rip-rollicking good read, exciting to the last word. There are quotes from Gilgamesh and some other ancient texts which adds a nice touch.
