Lord Orwell is a lot of things: thief, liar, drunk, and all-around horrible father, but Sebastian knows he's no murderer. In order to prove it, Sebastian has to keep the prince alive long enough to discover the truth - a task made considerably harder because the idiot prince prefers wooing Sebastian over securing his own survival. On top of everything, Sebastian needs to save the day without revealing his magical powers and the real reason he hides his appearance.
Sebastian had no intention of playing the hero, but whoever is stirring up shit in his country will pay for destroying his quiet life.

Sebastian - Family of Lies
At first sights, I've never heard of a family that despised each other so strongly. Which is the very first impression I got while hearing the opening words of that book. As it turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong - which was what I thought at the very end. Which is beautiful, by the way (forgive me the overuse of 'which' please, I couldn't help it).
Sebastian is a real smartass. Also, he's awfully cute when feeling unseen. Same counts for Taron, with a big plus on the cute part. As a hearer, I learned to love every figure that fought on their side during that battle and to dislike the rest of them. I am not so sure about Lord Orwell, thought. He's always played one no one's behalf but his own.
I chose this book at the beginning because of the speaker's wonderful voice and his ability to pronounce just right. Before that, I felt captured by the story and the cover on equal parts.
To conclude, I can say that this book truly held its promise. Thank both of you, Sam Argent and Cornell Collins.
