What a wonderful action packed series!! I was a little saddened that Owen had grown up so much, but the adventure and peril proved to be all the more interesting. I also wanted to point out that this series has no sex or swearing in it, which is unusual to me, but the books are so well written that they don't feel lacking. There is still love, romance and hostility it's just clean, it was honestly refreshing. Anyways, the perspective is from the main character Owen. His age has increased from eight, in the first novel, to 17. He is the duke of his childhood estate and is "fountain blessed". Through the book Owen and king Severn try to thwart Severn's "nephew" from unlawfully taking the throne. Owens loyalty, integrity, self control and fountain blessed gifts are constantly tested, but through it all he prevails. Kudos to the author for conjuring up "being fountain blessed", the idea of random people being born with gifts that are replenished through corresponding personal idiosyncrasies is brilliant. I seriously love these books and highly recommend them to anyone looking for a hero who actually deserves to be idolized. Super excited for more!
