Ah, the serial story has come to a satisfactory conclusion and all right with the infamous Black Sorcerer of Grimslock and First Knight of Goodwine. Or former First Knight of Goodwine. Hmmmm.
Our merry and bloodthirsty crew is all here at the end. Tan‘a siblings, Wells, Devan’s cutthroat family, all the people we’ve gotten to know through the previous stories.
At the end of the penultimate episode, Sherwood left our hero , Devan, in a shocking predicament. The princess and the King had used the latest crisis they’d created (and Devan and Tan had solved) to try and force a engagement with the princess. In front of a huge audience.
Including a raging Tan. Here we start up right where the story left off. It doesn’t go well for the princess or the King to our delight.
The rest of the tale revolves around the insanity the princess employing to have her revenge against the lovers and the challenges Tan, Devan, and crew face against her.
It’s gripping, funny, quickly paced, and ends way too soon for someone who’s so enjoyed the entertainment and drama the series has provided.
We needed a bit more beat down, more rescue of the mages for this to feel 100% deeply satisfying. But totally enjoyable? Absolutely.
If you love a bent fairytale, a princess romance gone very tilted in the most entertaining way, How I Stole The Princess’s White Knight and Turned Him To Villainy: Miracles 1 to 6 By A.J. Sherwood is for you.
I’m definitely recommending it.
What’s Devan to do when Serenity claims him as her lover? Run.
What’s Tan to do when Serenity claims Devan as her lover? Start a revolution.
All’s fair in love and war.
the First Knight of Goodwine has officially quit, or at least he’s trying really hard to quit, problem is no one wants to let him go, Serenity’s going to be an extinct species at this rate, accidental revolt, Tan’s rocking his crown though, shenanigans shall now commence, mercenaries, kidnappings, rule one when dealing with black sorcerers, don’t piss them off, rule two is don’t touch their knight, just a little murder, it’s fine.
