From official release/information:
Damask is a dry chunk of ground on the far side of some hard-to-travel hills from Noile, a much larger (and more aggressive) kingdom. Nobody really wants the place--not even the people that live there. Now, with the king's death, the question of "now what?" is going around... and the kings' brothers, Packard and Gregory, have a plan.
Thus begins Bad Prince Charlie, the new novel by John Moore. Moore's breezy style and knack for skewering fantasy clichés come through once more, as he pens the exploits of Bad Prince Charlie, the king's bastard son, and the kingdom he doesn't want but may end up with anyway.
