About the Book

For fourteen years, street-urchin Paul's miserable existence has kept him safe from an ancient law that sentences all second-born twins to death. When he learns he is the younger twin of the mentally handicapped Crown Prince who's in danger of being killed for his disability, he agrees to play the role of the miraculously healed royal heir. Paul struggles to learn how to act like a born ruler, but finds that his greatest skill, getting by unnoticed, is now his greatest liability. He knows if he is discovered, he will be executed like all second-born twins.

Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. I've lost count of how many times I've read it.
Although, Andre Norton's Gyphon Trilogy and The Year of the Unicorn are close seconds. ^_^

Fave fantasy novel: C. S. Lewis' "The Horse & His Boy." Maybe not the best in the Narnia series, but the 1st one this horse-crazy girl read, which kicked off a lifetime love of fantasy. :D

Daniel R. Marvello said...

I'm reading The Witches of Greenwitch now and enjoying it. If I'm not exempt due to my status as MA Tour Master, I'd like to enter to win too. I think you know my email address. ;-)

Daniel R. Marvello said...

Hmmm. You'd think someone claiming the title of "MA Tour Master" would at least follow the rules of the contest.

My favorite fantasy book is "Pawn of Prophecy" by David Eddings. I've read the five books of his Belgariad series several times.

Thanks for having hosted me. Since there were only four participants, I decided to give every one of you a coupon code for "Urchin King". If you feel like it, I'd appreciate a review in exchange (preferably on Goodreads, amazon, B&N or Smashwords).
Mail me at katharina at katharinagerlach dot com for your codes.
