Publisher's Summary

Imprisoned pickpocket Loth isn't sure why a bunch of idiots just broke into his cell claiming they’re here to rescue the lost prince of Aguillon, and he doesn’t really care. They’re looking for a redheaded prince, and he’s more than happy to play along if it means freedom. Then, his cranky cellmate Grub complicates things by claiming to be the prince as well.

Now, they’re fleeing across the country, and Loth’s stuck sharing a horse and a bedroll with Grub while imitating royalty, eating eel porridge, and dodging swamp monsters and bandits. 

Along the way, Loth discovers that there’s more to Grub than meets the eye. Under the dirt and bad attitude, Grub’s not completely awful. He might even be attractive. In fact, Loth has a terrible suspicion that he’s developing feelings, and he’s not sure what to do about that. He’d probably have more luck figuring it out if people would just stop trying to kill them. 

At least they’ve got a dragon, right?

Garbage.

This is the worst book I have ever had the misfortune of wasting a credit on. I struggled through 30 minutes of this book that I will never get back.

The jokey style and "soliloquizing" was cringe. Just absolute cringe. Poorly written, cliches out the wazoo, and I wasn't interested in the characters or the world. I really couldn't care less and I honestly wish I knew less about them than I did.

Nick J Russo is a talented narrator. I've enjoyed many of his works. I don't know if it was him or the director, or the author, but whoever told him to put on a "British" accent for this book.... turn on your location, I just wanna talk. Truly, catch these hands. WHAT IS THE REASON!!!!????

I have a theory: Lisa Henry is a good writer... but only when she's writing alone or with JA Rock. Any other collaboration with an author, her top tier writing suffers majorly. I don't know why she keeps teaming up with writers who are not on her level. It's disappointing.

This book was never going to be for me, but it could have at least been enjoyable for people who like stupidity. But then then they had to go and ruin it with the narrator.

Wonderfully Hilarious!

Nick Russo did a great job bringing my favorite Aguillon gang to life :) Two princes, an orc, a dwarf, a dragon, an idiot, and a collectivist anarchist elf set off on an adventure in this amazing series! Lisa Henry and Sarah Honey wrote a fabulous series in a fantastic world of kingdoms, evil Lords, swamp monsters, and pretenders to the throne. Loth, Grub/Quinn, Ada, Dave, Calarian, Pie, and even (ugh) Scott are a great band of adventurers who are on a mission to figure out who the mysterious Ser Factor is and why he wants the Lost Prince of Aguillon. Amazing and wonderful start to an awesome series :)

Fun and entertaining

This was a very fun and entertaining story to listen to. It's an adult fairy tale involving a rescued prince and a pauper posing as a prince, hi jinx and romance ensues. The characters are interesting, there's a lot of banter and adventure, with a bit of not very explicit sex thrown in.
I will keep following this series, hope the sequels come out in audio soon.

Immature

This was honestly a struggle to finish. The humor is repetitive and very immature, and there's only one or two characters who are likeable, most of them are just annoying for comedic purposes. The plot has a lot of holes and the ending feels forced and makes no sense. If you removed all of the sexual content, you could probably rebrand this is a children's book.

Didn't work for me

The humor fell flat for me and the story boring. For some reason the whole adventure and characters were not interesting and I never got engaged. Sometimes excessive snarkiness is just annoying.

Delightful

Red Heir is a lovely romp through what should be a stereotypical fantasy story. It has all the right elements: Elves, dwarves, heroes, dragons and orcs. No to mention secret identities and a QUEST! This story takes those elements and dumps them, and the reader, on their asses, and takes them for a wild rollicking ride. Fantastic story, awesome characters and hot sex.

Not to mention an Orc Bard.

Don’t listen to this story while eating or drinking

I did not expect this book to be as funny as it is. The amount of times I had to put my food aside because I snort laughed is too many to count. Definitely a great time of antics and funny business, with a dash of sober humanity, this is a great way to spend time

A fun and funny adventure to delight!

I though the story was fun and imaginative. These story lines can often be predictable and imitative but the authors were able to make each character and their adventure unique and memorable. The narrator was fun to listen to and really brought the book to life. The whole thing reminded me of TJ Klune who is one of my favorites. I will definitely be looking for more from all three!

I was thrown off

This book is so much fun. I really loved the characters and the world the authors have created. A little bit sassy and sweet at the same time. I just don’t understand why they choose a narrator who was not British if most of the main characters have a British accent. If the British accent the narrator used was good then I dont think I would have noticed. But his British accent is terrible and it totally took me out of the book. Its a shame, because I think I have would have enjoyed the ride a bit more had I not been so distracted by the bizarre vocal performance.
