Threon, the Vagabond King, is torn from a life in the palace by raiders and forced to scrape a living on the streets of a foreign land.
Meeting a witch of the underworld, a rebel soldier and a woman cursed by a god, he seeks retribution through a quest to reclaim his home and throne.
Together they rekindle old allegiances, face an immortal army and learn to trust one another. But when the gods begin to interfere with their plans, is it a curse or a blessing?
I am extremely happy that this book is Part one of a trilogy and I am so eager for the other books that will follow..
The characters were extremely well defined, as you make your way through the story the characters history was fed into the story at a steady pace, completely wrapping you up in this world.
The main character The Vagabond King was a strong character and I found that as I read I found myself visualising what I was reading in my mind all the events that were playing out. This story is not like anything I've ever read before, not usually a fantasy reader, this one pulled me right in.
This is a tale about the wealthy most privileged society called The Ancients immortals who raid other countries to slave them and take there riches. A young spoilt prince manages to escape and live on the streets of another city, he grows up and becomes The Vagabond King who comes back to avenge his people helped three rebels who have formed an alliance along the way.
This is an enthralling read about the fight between good and bad.
I highly recommend this read, it is fast paced and leaves you wanting more...
