This is the sort of book that I read at night before bed. It has an easy to follow story, but wasn't deep enough that I had an issue keeping up while sleepy. The ending was not what I expected, but I like it when I am surprised. It is the story of a young man thrust into being king, and goes through the adventures of his life. Magic, and castles, and Ireland. It is very long too, which as a super fast reader, I appreciate.
