A Confusion of Princes
Author: Garth Nix
But it isn’t as great as it sounds. For one thing, Princes are always in danger. Their greatest threat? Other Princes. Khemri discovers that the moment he is proclaimed a Prince.
He also discovers mysteries within the hidden workings of the Empire. Dispatched on a secret mission, Khemri comes across the ruins of a space battle. In the midst of it, he meets a young woman called Raine who will challenge his view of the Empire, of Princes, and of himself.
This extraordinary coming-of-age tale, by storyteller nonpareil Garth Nix, is original, thrilling, and triumphant.
