An innocent excited boy, a prince and heir, takes his first journey to the city. The streets teem with merchants in velvet robes, magicians, half-mad preachers, with life and color, poverty and noise. He doesn't want to miss any of it. But this is the last journey in his life as a prince. Soon he will be abandoned and declared dead. Soon he will be utterly alone, faced only with survival and what will become the driving force of his life: the quest to recover his stolen inheritance, his usurped throne. His home.
A story of cities and palaces, of power-hungry lords and ladies scheming inside a magically threatened land. Intricate, compelling, The White Mists of Power is the debut novel of a woman who has gone on to have a seismic impact on the science-fiction and fantasy field.

I am a web professional who loves reading but life doesn't afford enough time if you are living at the speed of the internet. Audio books were my salvation. I love Science Fiction first and foremost, then Fantasy, and then anything else I can find that sounds interesting.
I would absolutely recommend this book to a friend. I enjoyed the base premise of a boy who had been "lost" and came back to reclaim his power.
It would have to be the revelation of the bards identity at the dinner.
I liked that the readers voice was not obtrusive. It made getting into the story much easier.
