The fire prince - Emily Gee

The fugitive Osgaardan prince, Harkeld, is that man—whether he likes it or not. But the bounty on Harkeld’s head is high. He has outrun his father’s soldiers, but he can’t outrun the assassins who seek him—Fithians, trained in the art of killing. Even the Sentinel mages who guide and guard him are no match for Fithian steel. Faced with the ever-present threat of death, Harkeld must learn to use his fire magic. Or die.

Meanwhile, dark plots are unfolding in Osgaard’s gold-tiled palace, snaring Princess Brigitta and those she loves. And in the eastern kingdoms, young orphan Jaumé journeys with a band of mysterious and dangerous fighters, heading north for a purpose he does not understand.

My thoughts:
This is a complicated book, not the book itself, oh no, that is simple, but how I like it. Why do I even like it? I think it's because I could read it fast, it was simple and just pure escapism. No need for my brain to get involved. Cos the history, meh, the characters, meh. See my dilemma?

Harkeld is quite the arrogant piece of shite isn't he? They are trying to help you! Gods, you really can be an asshole!

Right, he is with the witches trying to save the world. One of them Innis, has the hots for him. Innis, well I liked her, but she was a bit too interested in him

Then we have the kid Jaume *yawns* boring

Then it jumps to Brigitte's chapters, which totally was the best ones. She has an evil brother, an evil kingdom and there is danger there.

All while people die like flies. I mean come on. You guys are supposed to be good! Not die and die and die and die.

Conclusion:
And still I read on, and will read the last one. Go figure.

Not sure I want to read a book where everyone dies!

A POS for a hero and people dying like flies? Now that grabbed my attention.

Okay, I just recently heard of Emily Gee and now I don't remember where! I might have seen the first book on Solaris' site or something. I'll wait to see what you think of the last one since you will finish. I don't mind pure escapism.

I've had The Sentinel Mage for a few years now, but haven't read it. It's part of my TBR Pile that I want to read this year. Sorry this sequel is less than stellar, but it's good that you will keep reading the series.

The first book was no better, but I still read on ;)
