I received a copy of Prodigy Prince in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Prodigy Prince by Natasha Sapienza is the tale of two brothers, both princes, and their fight for what they believe in. One is determined to save his people, while the other is driven to follow his own ambitions in life.
Prince Nuelle is a most generous prince. In many ways, he could have been the perfect prince. He was kind and sweet and very giving. He should never have been in line for becoming king, since his elder brother received all of the training to do that.
Until one day, Prince Antikai, the elder brother, went off on his own, something that went directly against the King’s orders. Harsh punishment swiftly followed, resulting with the brother’s becoming odds with one another.
“Nuelle writhed as blood spilled and pain seared through his face.”
Prodigy Prince was everything it promised, and then some. This truly was the tale of the perfect prince – a prodigy, if you would. He was sweet and caring, and even though he didn’t want to go up against his brother, he did exactly that.
In many ways, Nuelle is the leader that real life cities and countries deserve. That may cause a twinge or two, for fans reading this series. But it’s well worth that turmoil, I promise.
This was a fascinating read, I loved reading about Nuelle and his drive to do the right thing. Yes, there were times where he came off as too perfect. But once you put that aside, it’s actually rather endearing to see him constantly rise up to the challenge. And that made for a truly unique read in more ways than one.
I also enjoyed Natasha Sapienza’s writing style. It was elegant and understated at the same time. I think it perfectly supported the characters and actions (obviously I have Nuelle in mind here). Prodigy Prince is the first novel I’ve read by her, so I can’t make any comparisons. But I can say that I am impressed and that I’m looking forward to seeing more from her.
