The Kin of Kings #1

Michael is branded a traitor as a child because of the murder of the king’s nine-year-old son, by his father David Kingman. Ten years later on Michael lives a hardscrabble life, with his sister Gwen, performing crimes with his friends against minor royals in a weak attempt at striking back at the world that rejects him and his family.

In a world where memory is the coin that pays for magic, Michael knows something is there in the hot white emptiness of his mind. So when the opportunity arrives to get folded back into court, via the most politically dangerous member of the kingdom’s royal council, Michael takes it, desperate to find a way back to his past. He discovers a royal family that is spiraling into a self-serving dictatorship as gun-wielding rebels clash against magically trained militia.

What the truth holds is a set of shocking revelations that will completely change the Hollows, if Michael and his friends and family can survive long enough to see it.

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.
