At age eighteen, when they become marriageable, all royal children in the Thousand Kingdoms must either go questing to rescue another royal or be hidden away to await rescue themselves. Some go the traditional route of princes rescuing princesses, but not all princes want to be rescuers…and some would rather rescue other princes.
Then there’s Prince Gerald, who has no interest in getting married at all. When he refuses to choose a role as either rescuer or rescuee, his royal parents choose for him and have him magicked away to a distant tower to await a spouse.
Gerald, however, is having none of it. He recruits his guardian dragon and a would-be rescuer and soon the trio is dashing to all corners of the united kingdoms on a quest to overturn the entire system.

I really loved this book! I thought the pacing was very good and I really liked Gerald, Omar, and the dragon. It was a good mix of fun and serious and I look forward to seeing more from the author! The story was extremely satisfying but if there ever is more written about these characters, I'll be jumping on that immediately! I felt so much for Gerald, his family and almost everyone else around does not understand and refuses to even just listen to him about is asexuality and aromanticism and it was so hard to read about that. I had wished that he might meet at least one other character who was like him but that does not happen unfortunately.
