Publisher's Summary

High Commander Lesto Arseni is the most feared man in the Harken Empire. None but the High King dares risk his wrath - and a pirate who once punched him in the middle of the imperial pavilion. A pirate who later snuck away with Lesto to an empty room, touched him in ways far more memorable. And then immediately bolted like a man who'd gotten what he wanted.
Shemal just wants to live a normal life, leave his pirating days behind him and prove that he's respectable now. The last thing he needs is the two idiots who show up wanting his help with the noble they've kidnapped - the very man Shemal had been hoping to prove himself to, the man he hasn't forgotten since Shemal punched him a year and a half ago.

Brilliant book, brilliantly narrated

This is the second book in The High Court series and it's as good as the first. This story is a little less adventure and intrigue (but still enough to add substance) and more about the developing relationship between Lesto and Shemal, which is simply beautiful and feels authentic and earned.

A great listen, with the narrators understated but effective narration. I loved it.

Book 2 doesn't dissapoint

Really enjoyed book 2 of Tales of the High Court. Not as long as High King's Golden Tongue story but just as good. Loved to hear how the characters from book 1 are progressing. Great to get Lesto's story. Shemal is a side character from book one, I had forgotten his link to Lesto until I re listened to book one but was great to hear their background story and I loved this continuation. Can a strong, powerful, educated militry man love a rough ex pirate? Listen and find out! Can't wait to listen to book 3. I may read it first as usual but I feel for me Michael Stellman brings such depth and feeling to his naration I really enjoy listening to this series. I would reccomend but also would say book 1 needs to be listened to first to really enjoy it.to the full.
