From official release/information:

The main character in The Singer's Crown is Kattanan DuRhys, once a prince and now a castrato. His wicked uncle has usurped his throne, and had him castrated and dumped in a monastery. The monks taught him to sing and then sold him into slavery. Kattanan goes from master to master, until he ends up near his birthplace as a gift to a neighboring princess. I wanted to read this book. There have been a couple of nice mysteries starring a castrato singer published recently, and I had also read a very nice historical novel by Anne Rice about a castrato. I had great hopes for this story.
