This was a decent read that did start me out with a chuckle in the first few paragraphs. It's reminiscent of Terry Pratchett, yet not quite as polished. However, this author's use of footnotes got annoying quick because they weren't that funny or great. It was a different type of book to read as well, as it took me about halfway through before realizing it didn't have chapters, but "pauses" between sections (like mini-chapters). Overall, it was pretty good, but didn't grab me in a big way that makes me want to rush out and read everything by this author, even though this is the second book by him I've read.
Very humorous, light fiction. John Moore books in general tend to be good, light romps. Nothing too serious, no major characters, but interesting plotlines.
Charlie's father the king dies without telling him all the details of his latest actions. With a war on the horizon, his uncles plotting, and his fiance in the process of betraying him, Charlie decides being a bad king and causing a revolt is his best move. Liked it but don't want to reread it.
