Prince Allen has trained his entire life to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious mother, who has made their kingdom one of the wealthiest and most influential in the empire. For the past few years he has trained to become the new consort of the High King. The only thing no one prepared him for was the stubborn, arrogant High King himself, who declares Allen useless and throws him out of court.
High King Sarrica is ruling an empire at war, and that war will grow exponentially worse if his carefully laid plans do not come to fruition. He's overwhelmed and needs help, as much as he hates to admit it, but it must be someone like his late consort: a soldier, someone who understands war, who is not unfamiliar with or afraid of the harsher elements of rule. What he doesn't need is the delicate, pretty little politician foisted on him right as everything goes wrong.

A must read.
Great book. Audio does it justice.
I'm very happy that Stellman decided to drop the accent he tried to do in "Tournament of Losers" (also by Derr). There are few things that irritate me as much as this weird notion that audio fantasy books require British accents.
Especially since this is one of my fav books by Derr, so I'm glad I'll be able to re-listen many times without having to suppress that irritation.
