Thumbs up for Prince of the Godborn by Geraldine Harris. Children’s fantasy.
By all rights I should have been bored to tears by this, the first volume in a series about a spoiled half-God prince and his warrior half-brother traveling the world in search of seven MacGuffins. It also suffers a slight lack of commas. Yet, somehow, the characters and the world charmed me. The perfect book to keep on your phone for waiting-in-line-for-two-minutes emergency reading. I’ve already queued up the second volume.
“You are unscathed, Prince,” said Elmandis coolly. “The mistakes of those who are protected are often paid for in the blood of those they love. It is a hard thing to bear and rightly so. However, I think that you have mistaken pride for faith, as so many do.”
