Teaser Tuesday: The Ruin of Kings

Like the start of another school year, the Wheel of Time has turned ’round to Teaser Tuesday.

It’s been too long since I did a Teaser Tuesday. According to my published posts, I last wrote about The Problem of Democracy. Since then I’ve read:

  • The Sandman vol 9: The Kindly Ones
  • The Loch of the Dead

Okay. I haven’t read as much as I’d like. But this week I’m soldiering on with The Ruin of Kings.

The Goodreads Blurb:

There are the old stories. And then there’s what actually happens.

Kihrin is a bastard orphan who grew up on storybook tales of long-lost princes and grand quests. When he is claimed against his will as the long-lost son of a treasonous prince, Kihrin finds that being a long-lost prince isn’t what the storybooks promised.

Far from living the dream, Kihrin finds himself practically a prisoner, at the mercy of his new family’s power plays and ambitions. He also discovers that the storybooks have lied about a lot of other things things, too: dragons, demons, gods, prophecies, true love, and how the hero always wins.

Then again, maybe he’s not the hero, for Kihrin isn’t destined to save the empire.

He’s destined to destroy it . . .


The Truly Random Number Generator sends us to page 139:

He looked like a nobody, you understand. Nothing special about him except his height. He even had a bit of a potbelly. He didn't look like a great leader, a hero. He looked, completely and fully, like a bartender.
