Publisher's Summary

It is the dawn of the Renaissance, a time when new ideas are just beginning to emerge. Alfred - the eponymous second son - comes of age in the enlightened court of his grandfather. Alfred is convinced that his life will be unremarkable, spent in diligent but mundane service to king and kingdom. His grandfather, however, foresees for him a special destiny. It is also a time when peace and stability are tenuous, and threats can arise from unexpected quarters. Taken captive while on a mission for the king, Alfred is held for ransom and taken ever farther away from his home. With his prospects dwindling, he must find a way to survive if he is ever to fulfill that mysterious destiny.

Transport yourself to a fictitious kingdom you’re positive is real.

Taylor has transported me to another time and place with words and images so adeptly I thought I was in a real kingdom. The story with Bryan Lisa’s perfect narration and beautiful voice moves at a swift pace and leaves me wanting to read the next book in the series to find out what’s in-store for Alfred.
