The One True Prince - Thomas Brennan Summary
From newcomer Thomas Brennan comes this tale of courtly intrigue, succession, and murder in a land that is at once familiar, yet not of this world . . . After decades of war in the third Millennia, the Clan of Na Cereth claims Albion's throne and uses cloning to ensure male succession. The four clones and the One True Prince are sent to remote monasteries; only the King, his Chamberlain, and the exiled Queen Aideen know the real heir's identity. Now the King lies dying in London. Before Chamberlain Parak Mor can act, assassins strike at multiple targets: In Siloth monastery, Myria sees her father and Prince Lorcan murdered, and flees with the assassin's face etched into her memory . . . In Escossia's Kyle Na Durss monastery, Prince Tiegue and his bodyguard Jared escape a similar group of attackers. Wounded and pursued, they struggle by sea to Bristol. Myria, helped by a secret religious society, also takes to the ocean. Washed ashore, she struggles to reach London, and along the way, Tiegue's and Myria's paths cross for the first time. When Tiegue returns for the Accession, Myria sees the Siloth assassin at court. She must warn Tiegue. But the Accession Ceremony begins in secret and now the fate of the entire kingdom is held in the hands of a returning princess running for her life, and the man who would be . . . The One True Prince. Thomas Brennan lives in the UK.
