Griff is just a grunt worker at an amazing circus. Nobody pays him much attention except his two older brothers, who are performers in the circus. But Griff has one secret only his brothers know about. The reason he prefers doing grunt work along, up in the scaffolding.
Lute is the Crown Prince of Drestonia, next heir to the throne. He has lived a happy life so far, even if his uncle, the Duke, has made his life uncomfortable so far. He has a bodyguard/friend, Pilo, who will protect him against all odds.
What do these boys have in common? Nothing, it seems. But this tale brings them together in a a way that can never be broken, shattered, or smothered. But Lute is hiding from the Duke, who has taken over the kingdom, and Griff is hiding from the show master who wants to utilize his talents for his own personal gain. Can these two boys pull off what they need to do against all odds? Or will they simply fail, and never be seen or heard from again.
Wow. This book was awesome. It had that old fashioned-y twist that most fantasy books have. At least when it comes to castles and kingdoms. But it utilized it in a good way. Most of these tales
deal with the royal family, and this one did. But at least the sole purpose isn't to save the royal family. There were some common folk involved at least. I gave this book 4.5 stars because the plot was easy to guess. I could tell what the big surprise that brought these boys together would be. Before it happened, at least. You should really try this book out in your free time, you won't regret it!!!!!
