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.

Das Cover gefällt mir sehr!

The cover is superb!

Die Stimme war gut, ich hatte keine Probleme mit dem Sprecher während der gesamten Geschichte. Der Lesestil hat sich an keiner Stelle for die Geschichte gedrängt und mein Kopfkino war sehr angeregt :-)

The voice was good, I had no problems with it through the story. The reading style didn't get in the way of the story and got my mental movies going :-)

Die Geschichte dreht sich um einen König, der einige Jahre zuvor seinen Gefährten an eine Schlacht verloren hat. Der Hof bestimmt einen neuen Bewerber, der für die Position hart trainiert, nur um sofort abgewiesen zu werden. Verletzt, aber nicht beirrt, beginnt der junge Prinz, sich einen Weg in das Herz des Königs zu erarbeiten, nicht ohne einige Risiken einzugehen.
Es höfische Intrigen, Spione, Schlachten und die Gesellschaft die Derr beschreibt, ist recht interessant.
Die Geschichte war gut und ich mochte sie, aber sie war nicht so dicht und voll von unvorhersehbaren Wendungen wie Die Prinzen von C.S. Pacat z.B. war. Ich mochte die Dynamik zwischen den beiden Hauptpersonen, aber die Spannung zwischen Hauptpersonen darf jederzeit höher sein :-) Aber für einen entspannten Tag voller Hörgenuss werde ich dieses Hörbuch auf alle Fälle noch einmal laden!

Drei Sterne von mir :-)

The story is one of a king who lost his consort to battle and refused to remarry for several years. The court chooses him a new prospect that trains hard for the position, just to be outright rejected. Hurt, but not deterred, the young prince starts to work his way into the kings heart, taking some risks along the way.
There is courtly intrigue, spies and battle and the society Derr depicts is rather interesting.
The story was nice and I liked it, but it wasn't as dense and full of unpredictable turns as Captice Prince by C.S. Pacat was, for example. I liked the dynamic between the MCs, but the tension is always allowed to be higher :-) But for anther relaxed day of listening, I will reload this audiobook definitely!

So three stars for me!

There are no Strings here to Coeur a'Arlene or the the Stage Dive World. But you won't Miss one or the other. The protagonists age make IT more of a YA story, but it's a lot steamier.
The story has a as always a grip in you from the start. There are no lengths, every word tells you something.
I would love to hear from Hung and Anderson :-)
Arndt is as always a superb voice for the happenings in Miss Scotts worlds!

Most of the JA Urban Fantasy novels don't Take the time to get real. This book Just did it.
In the last installment we got a certain image of all the personell. This book showed, what happens when life slowly grates on the fundaments of sanity and character.
I read a lot to get away from these things and there are short moments in which I hate the author for not spareing at least fictional persons from what loss and heart break and fear do to you. But in the end, these books are always getting in the "realy worthy of reading and reading again" list. Same here. Prepare yourself for cursing because part three is sceduled for 2019.
The voice is sublime.
Reading Lady Midnight first is strongly recomended!

Officer Noel Carlson isn't out to anyone in small-town Stratton, Pennsylvania, so a relationship is out of the question. That doesn't stop him from wanting one, though. When a night-shift call brings him face-to-thonged-butt with a hired stripper whose girl-party gig went terribly wrong, Noel takes pity on the guy and lets him go. But he can't get the encounter out of his mind.

Ich bin ein großer Fan des Sprechers.

Das Buch war für lange Autofahrten perfekt.
Zwei junge Männer, beide Türen kein einfaches Leben, beide finden Glück in der Gegenwart des anderen. Beide Lebensgeschichten sind hart, was das Zusammensein nicht einfach macht. Doch sie finden immer wieder einen Weg, egal wie tragisch das Leben manchmal ist.
