Description

In the ancient moors of Scotland, the king of Calidon lies on his deathbed, cursed by a ring that cannot be removed from his finger. When a mysterious fey stranger appears to save the king, he also carries a secret that could tear the royal family apart. The kingdom's only hope will lie with two young men raised worlds apart. Aric is the beloved heir to the throne of Calidon; Albaric is clearly of noble origin yet strangely out of place. The Oddling Prince is a tale of brothers whose love and loyalty to each other is such that it defies impending warfare, sundering seas, fated hatred, and the very course of time itself. In her long-awaited new fantasy novel, Nancy Springer (the Books of Isle series) explores the darkness of the human heart as well as its unceasing capacity for love.

Professional reviews

"Samuel Roukin narrates Springer's new stand-alone fantasy with a measured cadence that suits novel's epic tradition. When a mysterious and magical stranger appears to save Calidon's dying king, the noble young prince discovers he has a half-fae brother. Roukin's voice suits the kind and honorable Prince Aric, never wavering even as the king begins to devolve into an angry tyrant, refusing to acknowledge his secret son's legitimacy and almost plunging the kingdom into war. As their family bonds are sorely tested, Roukin infuses the king's gravelly voice with unquenchable rage. Folklore fans will enjoy exploring the triumph of love over jealousy and betrayal in an ancient Scottish setting. J.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
