The story of
"Seven Princes" begins with Prince D'zan of Yaskatha staring
in horror as he sees his father murdered and his kingdom taken by
a man named Elhathym. D'zan and his guard flee the kingdom, both
men determined to raise an army to retake Yaskatha. D'zan notices
that his guard carries a sack of emeralds, with which he pays for
everything they need as they travele. Since the guard is a veteran
warrior, D'zan intends to leave the army in his capable hands. After
all, D'zan himself is only sixteen and has no idea how to go about
the task of gaining allies and an army.
At one stop,
they are ambushed and the guard is killed. The emeralds are gone,
probably stolen by the assassins Elhathym had sent after them. Again,
D'zan manages to escape. But he is now alone and penniless. He will
never retake his kingdom like this! Were it not for the six princes
who have vowed to help him, he'd have to stay on the run for as
long as he could with no hope of regaining his kingdom.
As you can
see, the story grabs your attention with the first sentence and
keeps it. This is a can't-put-it-down book. With this audio, if
you really can't stop listening, before you begin, leave the kids
with a sitter, tie and gag your spouse, turn off all the phones
and lock all the doors and windows and close the blinds and drapes.
Then, grab enough food and drink to maintain for seventeen-and-a-half
hours. You can take your CD player to the bathroom with you. Then,
enjoy a well-written fantasy that is truly action-packed with a
small touch of romance.
