    A dark power is at work, intent on gaining complete control of the CradleLand, the birthplace of the still-young world. All that stands in the Power's way is one troublesome line of humans: descendants of Seth. They are of the only remaining clan clinging to an all-but-dead faith. And yet it's from that faith that a prophecy threatens all plans of world dominion.

    Joshua says: "Great story, buy the book instead."

    If you. like. the way. I punctuate. you will. love the. narration.
    Michael Taylor is a terrible narrator. I literally would get a pressure headache with the way he reads the story. He was four voices: Deep and slow, pausing between EVERY word; His normal voice which would do fine reading a newspaper; a high-pitched, whiney voice, like that of an old miner from '49 gold rush; and a Minnesota grandma voice (don'cha knoo). His voice is an injustice to an audible subscriber and to this book. I feel ripped-off.

    The Red Queen is old but the kings of the Broken Empire dread her like no other. For all her reign, she has fought the long war, contested in secret, against the powers that stand behind nations, for higher stakes than land or gold. Her greatest weapon is The Silent Sister - unseen by most and unspoken of by all. The Red Queen's grandson, Prince Jalan Kendeth - drinker, gambler, seducer of women - is one who can see The Silent Sister.

    Ron says: "M. Lawrence does it again, but differently."
    "HIGHLY ENJOYABLE!"

    If you could sum up Prince of Fools in three words, what would they be?

    The dialogue was witty and hilarious, the characters were well-developed and it is a non-stop ride until the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not expect to LOVE this book. And I do.
