An award winning medieval story of love, honor and courage. You would think the life of a prince would be great, but for the crown prince of Brinley that's far from the truth.

When he goes into the military he must conceal his identity but finally gains some friends. When he is sent to deliver a message to the overthrown tyrant King Burkhart he falls in love with the one woman he knows he can't have.
Aurita knows everyone hates her and her father but everyone is forbidden to tell her why. What she does know is that for her and her father the village is their prison and to leave seals their deaths. King Langward controls their lives including who she will marry when she is of age but he is kind to her. When King Langward's son sends her a gift her father teaches her to read and write so she can send him a note to thank him. They begin to exchange letters. As the years pass she looks forward to the letters she gets from the prince but doesn't dare admit she has fallen in love with him.

Blood of Ancient Kings - I give this book a medal of honor for bringing me joy and happiness by having such smart characters that dare to use the legendary power of common sense and knowledge.

Blood of Ancient Kings - Another thing I like was the naive romance and the profound love each character has for their respective partner. The values were a big thing for them, the honor was important and a man’s word was worth a lot. The author really captures the essence of medieval times.
