REVIEW: “The Errant Prince” by Sasha L. Miller

PersonalizedBannerAmi

ABOUT:

Myron’s task is easy enough on the surface: locate the runaway Prince Tamsen and bring him home. But Tamsen is not merely a talented wizard, he’s an exceptionally stubborn one, and dozens of others have already failed at the task. When he manages to find the cabin where Tamsen is hiding, Myron isn’t foolish enough to mistake the find for a victory.

Instead of attempting to drag the prince home by force, Myron tries a different tact: patience. He might not be able to best Tamsen magically or physically, but Myron can certainly out-stubborn him. He’s nothing if not used to doing what other people say he can’t.

But neither prince nor soldier expected stubbornness to be the crack in armor they’ve both become adept at wearing…

REVIEW:

The Errant Prince is a sweet and conflict-free romantic-fantasy between an improper guard and a crotchety errant prince.

Since Myron is adamant to bring Prince Tamsen home, he sits down under the tree in front of Tamsen’s house to wait. Thus the beginning of the story feels quite slow. Myron alternates between waiting and doing whatever daily activities that Tamsen tells him to. Through this their friendship is forged.

I enjoyed their conversational exchange and the learning of magic – I found Myron refreshingly cheeky, with him teasing Tamsen anyway that he can, which helps to wear Tamsen down.

Later, we find out why Tamsen ran away and avoided going home for the past seven years. The resolution conflict was predictable but nonetheless acceptable. As a note, Ms. Miller did a little twist with Myron’s identity. However, it was written in a low-key manner and never put forth as an issue. On one hand, it is appreciated but on the other hand, I thought highlighting that factor could actually boost up the somewhat lackluster manner of the story.

Oh, and as usual with stories from this publisher, it also lacks steam, with only a couple of kisses between Myron and Tamsen. For the smut lovers, you might need to look elsewhere :).

About Ami

My name is Ami and I'm an Indonesian girl in my mid 30's, living in Jakarta, the capital of Indonesia. I used to do a lot of journal writing in a different website but over the years, I started to lose interest. I am, instead, pretty active in reading and writing opinion in Goodreads. Then I start thinking that maybe I can have a blog in which I write mostly about books or joy of reading or anything related to reading activity, really. So this is what this blog is for ... although, I may be inspired to write off-books topic as well :)

    Sorry, but I need to look elsewhere, a couple of kisses isn’t going to be enough for me.
