Summary
"The youngest, half-goblin son of the Emperor has lived his entire life in exile, distant from the Imperial Court and the deadly intrigue that suffuses it. But when his father and three sons in line for the throne are killed in an 'accident,' he has no choice but to take his place as the only surviving rightful heir. Entirely unschooled in the art of court politics, he has no friends, no advisors, and the sure knowledge that whoever assassinated his father and brothers could make an attempt on his life at any moment. Surrounded by sycophants eager to curry favor with the naîve new emperor and overwhelmed by the burdens of his new life, he can trust nobody. Amid the swirl of plots to depose him, offers of arranged marriages, and the specter of the unknown conspirators who lurk in the shadows, he must quickly adjust to life as the Goblin Emperor. All the while, he is alone, and trying to find even a single friend . . . and hoping for the possibility of romance, yet also vigilant against the unseen enemies that threaten him, lest he lose his throne--or his life" --
Summary
When his estranged father, Emperor Varenechibel of the Elflands, perishes in an airship crash, 18-year-old Maia Drazhar is recalled from exile and proclaimed heir to the Elfin imperial throne of Ethuveraz. Maia, whose late mother was a goblin, is immediately transformed from pariah to messiah -- attracting sycophants, schemers, and enemies in short order. If Maia is to survive life at court, let alone rule, he'll need to distinguish false friends from true and use his wits to navigate a treacherous world of conspiracy and political intrigue. Don't miss this unusual combination of high fantasy, mystery, and political drama with steampunk elements. -- Description by Gillian Speace
