The Kin of Kings #1

The first great war of Ovira is over and the most hated king in centuries is dead, but his nephew still lives. However, Basen had nothing to do with the destructive war his uncle started. In fact, it was his uncle who exiled him and his father to the territory of their enemies, where Basen’s dreams of becoming a legendary mage now fade as he must work all day just to eat. His only chance at regaining some semblance of the life he thought he would lead is to join an elite school that trains, houses, and feeds a thousand new young men and women each year. But little does Basen know that his determination will put him at the center of a war even bloodier than the one he’d barely managed to avoid.

Basen and his father are still blamed for a war they had nothing to do with. Basen is the nephew of an evil King, and him and his father were thrown out of the country. Now though, everyone knows their family name. His Uncle is, after all, possibly the most hated King ever.

Basen and his father are doing what they can to survive, and meet with seemingly a string of luck. Basen gets into a school and learns magic and how to fight. Although he already knows much of how to fight. He’s smart, and can make the best of a situation. When he first goes to the school to tryout, his father wants him to be a soldier. However, there are already way more who want to be soldiers than will be excepted. He sees the magician line is shorter, much shorter, and he would have much better odds of getting in as a magician. So, working things to his favor, he quickly goes to make a trade for a wand to try out to be a magician.

When he gets accepted into the school though things start becoming serious. He manages to make a few friends, and meets up with a girl he used to know growing up. He didn’t like her then, she was always on a short fuse. Now he is surprised to find she seems to have grown a longer fuse, and they soon become friends again.

Things in the book seem to work out, and things just really start going right for Basem and his father. They make a key friend with one of the people who was watching the trials, and turns out to be a key person and family relation to the king. If you can manage to get past these miraculous strokes of good luck in the beginning, the book gets much better. And the last lines of the book involve something happening I certainly didn’t see coming. Now I’m curious to see how things play out and will be trying to pick up the next book soon.
