Publisher's Summary

Imprisoned pickpocket Loth isn't sure why a bunch of idiots just broke into his cell claiming they’re here to rescue the lost prince of Aguillon, and he doesn’t really care. They’re looking for a redheaded prince, and he’s more than happy to play along if it means freedom. Then, his cranky cellmate Grub complicates things by claiming to be the prince as well.

Now, they’re fleeing across the country, and Loth’s stuck sharing a horse and a bedroll with Grub while imitating royalty, eating eel porridge, and dodging swamp monsters and bandits. 

Along the way, Loth discovers that there’s more to Grub than meets the eye. Under the dirt and bad attitude, Grub’s not completely awful. He might even be attractive. In fact, Loth has a terrible suspicion that he’s developing feelings, and he’s not sure what to do about that. He’d probably have more luck figuring it out if people would just stop trying to kill them. 

At least they’ve got a dragon, right?

Fun and entertaining

This was a very fun and entertaining story to listen to. It's an adult fairy tale involving a rescued prince and a pauper posing as a prince, hi jinx and romance ensues. The characters are interesting, there's a lot of banter and adventure, with a bit of not very explicit sex thrown in.
I will keep following this series, hope the sequels come out in audio soon.

Wonderfully Hilarious!

Nick Russo did a great job bringing my favorite Aguillon gang to life :) Two princes, an orc, a dwarf, a dragon, an idiot, and a collectivist anarchist elf set off on an adventure in this amazing series! Lisa Henry and Sarah Honey wrote a fabulous series in a fantastic world of kingdoms, evil Lords, swamp monsters, and pretenders to the throne. Loth, Grub/Quinn, Ada, Dave, Calarian, Pie, and even (ugh) Scott are a great band of adventurers who are on a mission to figure out who the mysterious Ser Factor is and why he wants the Lost Prince of Aguillon. Amazing and wonderful start to an awesome series :)

A fun and funny adventure to delight!

I though the story was fun and imaginative. These story lines can often be predictable and imitative but the authors were able to make each character and their adventure unique and memorable. The narrator was fun to listen to and really brought the book to life. The whole thing reminded me of TJ Klune who is one of my favorites. I will definitely be looking for more from all three!

Don’t listen to this story while eating or drinking

I did not expect this book to be as funny as it is. The amount of times I had to put my food aside because I snort laughed is too many to count. Definitely a great time of antics and funny business, with a dash of sober humanity, this is a great way to spend time

surprising

this was an unexpectedly great story with well timed jokes, good plot and character development. the voice actor narrating was fabulous. i got lost in the story and completely forgot it was just one person speaking for all the characters. will definitely keep this story in my permanent collection to enjoy again and again.

What an amazing story!

I have never heard of these authors or this book, but I was hitting a dry spell so I thought why not. I am so glad I did, The story is hilariously original and engaging. The characters whilst all flawed are enduringly charming and the narrator is spot on with every character.

Yes throughly enjoyed this and I cannot wait for the next book. In the meantime I’m going to check out the authors other books and see what treasures are hiding in plain sight.
