Summary

Imprisoned pickpocket Loth isn't sure why a bunch of idiots just broke into his cell claiming they’re here to rescue the lost prince of Aguillon, and he doesn’t really care. They’re looking for a redheaded prince, and he’s more than happy to play along if it means freedom. Then, his cranky cellmate Grub complicates things by claiming to be the prince as well.

Now, they’re fleeing across the country, and Loth’s stuck sharing a horse and a bedroll with Grub while imitating royalty, eating eel porridge, and dodging swamp monsters and bandits. 

Along the way, Loth discovers that there’s more to Grub than meets the eye. Under the dirt and bad attitude, Grub’s not completely awful. He might even be attractive. In fact, Loth has a terrible suspicion that he’s developing feelings, and he’s not sure what to do about that. He’d probably have more luck figuring it out if people would just stop trying to kill them. 

At least they’ve got a dragon, right?

What an amazing story!

I have never heard of these authors or this book, but I was hitting a dry spell so I thought why not. I am so glad I did, The story is hilariously original and engaging. The characters whilst all flawed are enduringly charming and the narrator is spot on with every character.

Yes throughly enjoyed this and I cannot wait for the next book. In the meantime I’m going to check out the authors other books and see what treasures are hiding in plain sight.

Wonderfully Hilarious!

Nick Russo did a great job bringing my favorite Aguillon gang to life :) Two princes, an orc, a dwarf, a dragon, an idiot, and a collectivist anarchist elf set off on an adventure in this amazing series! Lisa Henry and Sarah Honey wrote a fabulous series in a fantastic world of kingdoms, evil Lords, swamp monsters, and pretenders to the throne. Loth, Grub/Quinn, Ada, Dave, Calarian, Pie, and even (ugh) Scott are a great band of adventurers who are on a mission to figure out who the mysterious Ser Factor is and why he wants the Lost Prince of Aguillon. Amazing and wonderful start to an awesome series :)

Fun and entertaining

This was a very fun and entertaining story to listen to. It's an adult fairy tale involving a rescued prince and a pauper posing as a prince, hi jinx and romance ensues. The characters are interesting, there's a lot of banter and adventure, with a bit of not very explicit sex thrown in.
I will keep following this series, hope the sequels come out in audio soon.

Immature

This was honestly a struggle to finish. The humor is repetitive and very immature, and there's only one or two characters who are likeable, most of them are just annoying for comedic purposes. The plot has a lot of holes and the ending feels forced and makes no sense. If you removed all of the sexual content, you could probably rebrand this is a children's book.

Didn't work for me

The humor fell flat for me and the story boring. For some reason the whole adventure and characters were not interesting and I never got engaged. Sometimes excessive snarkiness is just annoying.

Delightful

Red Heir is a lovely romp through what should be a stereotypical fantasy story. It has all the right elements: Elves, dwarves, heroes, dragons and orcs. No to mention secret identities and a QUEST! This story takes those elements and dumps them, and the reader, on their asses, and takes them for a wild rollicking ride. Fantastic story, awesome characters and hot sex.

Not to mention an Orc Bard.

Don’t listen to this story while eating or drinking

I did not expect this book to be as funny as it is. The amount of times I had to put my food aside because I snort laughed is too many to count. Definitely a great time of antics and funny business, with a dash of sober humanity, this is a great way to spend time

A fun and funny adventure to delight!

I though the story was fun and imaginative. These story lines can often be predictable and imitative but the authors were able to make each character and their adventure unique and memorable. The narrator was fun to listen to and really brought the book to life. The whole thing reminded me of TJ Klune who is one of my favorites. I will definitely be looking for more from all three!

I was thrown off

This book is so much fun. I really loved the characters and the world the authors have created. A little bit sassy and sweet at the same time. I just don’t understand why they choose a narrator who was not British if most of the main characters have a British accent. If the British accent the narrator used was good then I dont think I would have noticed. But his British accent is terrible and it totally took me out of the book. Its a shame, because I think I have would have enjoyed the ride a bit more had I not been so distracted by the bizarre vocal performance.
