From Jeff Wheeler, the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of the Kingfountain novels, comes an epic new series of warring kingdoms, deadly family rivalries, and fearless loyalty.

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. A brutal war of succession has plunged the court of Kingfountain into a power struggle between a charitable king who took the crown unlawfully and his ambitious rival, Devon Argentine. The balance of power between the two men hinges on the fate of a young boy ensnared in this courtly intrigue. A boy befittingly nicknamed Ransom.

When the Argentine family finally rules, Ransom must make his own way in the world. Opportunities open and shut before him as he journeys along the path to knighthood, blind to a shadowy conspiracy of jealousy and revenge. Securing his place will not be easy, nor will winning the affection of Lady Claire de Murrow, a fiery young heiress from an unpredictably mad kingdom.

Ransom interrupts an abduction plot targeting the Queen of Ceredigion and earns a position in service to her son, the firstborn of the new Argentine dynasty. But conflict and treachery threaten the family, and Ransom must also come to understand and hone his burgeoning powers—abilities that involve more than his mastery with a blade and that make him as much a target as his lord.. 

My Rating: 

My Thoughts:
I am a fan of Jeff Wheeler and his writing. He has such a way with creating such intricate and gripping characters and a world that reels you in. From plot to action I was sold on it all. Having not read his Kingfountain series I found that I was a tiny bit confused as I was reading. Nothing too major, but I do think if I read that series first this could have been a solid five star read for me.

Ransom was an amazing character. I enjoyed being inside his head and following him. He didn't have that typical mucho attitude, but he was brave, kind and downright awesome. Lady Claire was a firecracker and I LOVED it! The two of them together just made me excited and happy with each turn of the page.

I am excited to continue on with the series, but I think I will jump into the Kingfountain series first before continuing on with this series just to help me understand the world a bit more. Overall, this was pretty great!
