Sebastian Orwell did the only thing a smart wizard could do when he stumbled upon the wounded Crown Prince: He healed him and dumped him in a tavern where he could continue not being Sebastian's problem. Unfortunately, the prince isn't content with being alive, and he hunts Sebastian down to thank him personally. Not only is Sebastian stuck with the prince's unwanted affections, but he's also confronted by growing evidence linking the assassination attempt to someone from his father's past.

What disappointed you about Family of Lies: Sebastian?

This story is so disjointed it is hard to follow. Near the beginning, the main character leaves home for a two month trip, he is at his destination for some unknown length of time and then *poof* he is back home again. No explanation, no indication of how much time had passed. This happens throughout the book- people come and go for inexplicable reasons and unless every location is within 20 miles of each other it would be impossible. The main character finds a horse to buy while in the middle of the woods with no discussion of where said seller or horse came from.
It becomes super obnoxious that everyone is so into a 19 year old's sex life and marriage.
Bitchy reactions from all sorts of characters are totally random and serve no purpose.
The ineptitude and yet unconcern of the government in handling the endless stream of worthless assassins is stupid.
The performance was great but this book was still hard to listen to.
