Lauren (laurenjberman) | 2239 comments Prince Dorian and his father have a contentious relationship. What do you think of this?

Melissa (melissasd) | 194 comments Dorian is a bit soft for his father's liking, but I think there is more to it. I don't think the reader was given the whole story.

His father is rather ruthless and Dorian doesn’t seem to have any of his character traits. He doesn’t respect his father because of it and the King doesn’t respect him because he lacks his qualities. This will not end well.

Lauren (laurenjberman) | 2239 comments Dorian appears to despise his father and his ruthlessness and cruelty. He wants to be a better ruler who treats his subject with respect rather than conquering and enslaving his neighbors.

I agree that the king sees Dorian as weak and doesn't respect him. It will be interesting to see what happens and which one prevails. Right now, the king has the upper hand.

Yep, the King holds all the winning cards right now.

I agree that Dorian wants to be a different leader and his father sees him as weak because of that.
