It’s like it is my fate to be reading about depressing characters right now. Admittedly things perk up but at the beginning the self-flagellation in this book can be a bit much to take. Really, the Prince is having a tough time of it, but things do get better. I enjoyed reading much of this book, partially because there wasn’t that much explicit sex. Okay a bit toward the end, but this book took a very good perspective on Demi-Sexuals and individuals that need to have a deep emotional connection before sex even enters into things.
This was a very good book. Full of emotional turmoil and a lot of adventure. It is fairly fast paced with a good amount of angst thrown in. If you are in a bad mental place then don’t read this book. If you like reading about angst and self-flagellation then this is a good fit for you.
