To his people, Rogelo, emperor of Glay, was a demigod, the Sacred Son of the Sky God, High Priest of the High Priests, the immortal Lily of Glevia, untouchable by mortal flesh, uncorrupted by mortal desires. To the High Council--Dorgan the General, Kestar the Judge, and Lamar the High Priest--he was a tool. Like any tool, he could be used or replaced. But to himself, he was a man, and he was determined to live as such.
The long-promised treat is here! Meet Cousin Zedigol! You will never forget him, as he gallops (well, not exactly; he dislikes horses) through the rest of this series, strewing mischief at every step after rescuing the Emperor of Glay from slavery in the mines of Edikon--for a joke.
We left Rogelo, Emperor of Glay, facedown in a muddy creek bed with a knife through his hand. How he survives--becomes an outlaw--learns to ride and fight--gets the girl (or does he)?--and retakes his throne--This unputdownable novel shows them all.
With his worst enemies ousted and every unmarried young woman in the Empire vying for his hand, Rogelo should be content. But as a real ruler instead of a puppet, he finds troubles on every hand What next? He would prefer not to have found out.
