Heart of the Crown
For as long as he can remember, Alric dreamed of being a hero; of defeating a dragon and saving the princess.
But his royal position would never allow it, until… the arrival of the Mercerian Emissaries demands a princely escort, and being neither the heir, nor the spare, he is the perfect choice.
Used to a lifetime of comfort and ease, he expects this duty to be as tiresome as all the others. His tranquil life is upended from the beginning, as havoc seems to follow these dignitaries everywhere, causing him all sorts of grief.
From fighting unknown creatures to defending the life of a royal, he discovers that becoming a hero is much more dangerous than he ever imagined. No matter what the outcome, his life will never be the same.

I have read all the greats from Robert Jordan to James Patterson. Paul Bennett is included now. My favorite stories are the ones I can immerse myself into, and always look forward to the next chapter. I just finished book three, and thought I would pause to share my appreciation.
This book kept me up long past my usual reading time. Lots of twists into the plot now, including a very surprising ending. ..right into the next one!
