When destiny calls, there's no fighting back. Kihrin grew up in the slums of Quur, a thief and a minstrel's son raised on tales of long-lost princes and magnificent quests. When he is claimed against his will as the missing son of a treasonous prince, Kihrin finds himself at the mercy of his new family's ruthless power plays and political ambitions. Practically a prisoner, Kihrin discovers that being a long-lost prince is nothing like what the storybooks promised. The storybooks have lied about a lot of other things, too: dragons, demons, gods, prophecies, and how the hero always wins. Then again, maybe he isn't the hero after all. For Kihrin is not destined to save the world. He's destined to destroy it.… (mere)

Really involved, satisfying story! The one thing I'd change if I could is she the names that look/sound the same. Makes it really hard to keep up with who is who. (Kind of like the Russian novels) ( )

I loved this book. It played with the fantasy tropes in a way I found electrifying. What’s more, I loved how the story ended but left me wondering where the hell it was going next. ( )

This one was a bit hard on the ticker. So much going on in terms of devices. Differing POVs, woven timelines, several unreliable narrators, characters that show up in one timeline that you haven't been introduced to only to get the backstory in another timeline. It was a wild ride, and I absolutely loved it. Amazing magic, thoughtful world-building, and characters you love and love to hate.

In terms of character-depth, I thought the characters were very well-rounded, but the method of the story's delivery didn't leave a lot of room to really dig into their depths. Room for improvement there.

Otherwise, if you like figuring things out, and don't need a strong linear story, this is definitely for you. And a huge plus for me? The editing in this book is FANTSTIC! ( )

Loved this book. It is a long book, but it doesn't feel like it. I kept wanting to read just one more chapter... Also has some of the best use of footnotes in a novel since [b:Infinite Jest|6759|Infinite Jest|David Foster Wallace|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1446876799s/6759.jpg|3271542] and the [b:Thursday Next series|8247464|Thursday Next Series Characters in the Thursday Next Series, First Among Sequels, the Eyre Affair, Lost in a Good Book, Bookworld|Books LLC|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1348595443s/8247464.jpg|13095065].

There are a lot of characters and a lot of plot. Yet the end of the book is satisfying AND sets up the next novel. (I am so tired of books with cliffhanger and/or sudden endings.) It's been a while since i've enjoyed reading such an epic fantasy. In addition to a glossary, it has a pronunciation guide. I do hope that there will be maps and family trees in the next book. I read an ARC, so perhaps those were included in the final published version.

I cannot wait until more people have read it so that we can talk. In the meantime, i'll be reading Leigh Butler's read of it on Tor. ( )

This is the craziest book I've read in a long while and is brimming with disaster bisexual energy. Insanely loved it/10 ( )
