The Hidden King
Hidden truths. Hidden power. Hidden destiny.
On the shores of an oily sea, in the streets of a starving city, a young man named Áed scraps to build a life for himself and the makeshift family he loves. Scarred by a trauma he cannot remember, and haunted by the brutal damage it left behind, he has no idea of the of the courage his future will demand.
When a heart-wrenching tragedy shatters his family, a desperate Áed risks a treacherous journey to seek a kingdom of legend—and a new beginning. But an ancient legacy smoldering within him is about to turn deadly, and neither he—nor the legends—will ever be the same.
[...] While the secret heir journey […] may not be new ground in fantasy fiction, the execution of Radcliff's story sets it apart from others in the genre. It blends LGBT themes, chosen family dynamics, and darker moments (including torture) into an exciting and wholesome tale. [...]Radcliff doesn't shy away from showing grittier realities of combat and a hero's journey, and there are moments of darkness and loss, suggestive descriptions, and intense twists. […] Radcliff skillfully applies a casual, yet beautiful style to tell their stories. -International Review of Books
