I’m posting from my current writing WiP, Song and Shadow, a prequel to Song and Sword. It’s a rough draft and I still don’t have an actual outline for it so it’s going to be a fun ride.
Pashevel and Hierik are still at Hierik’s birthday party.
“Are you really the Crown Prince of the Elves?”
“I am. But my experiences and my relationship with my people have been, and are, much different than yours.” He glanced toward Kurtzen. “But I have the feeling that your relationship with your father is not going to be much different than the one I have with mine.” He smiled. “I can tell already that the two of you have much different outlooks on things.”
“I’m a Bard,” Pashevel explained with a wink. “Now,” he said, “a prince should mingle with all of his guests.” He nodded toward the crowd of nobles and Hierik made a face.
“I don’t want to. And they don’t want me to.”

But he’s a prince. He should mingle whether he wants to or not . . . at least according to Pashevel.
I’m with Hierik. I wouldn’t much want to mingle with nobles either. I’ve always been very uncomfortable in formal settings.
Your book is included in this week’s Roost Recommendations, featuring a link to this post, a buy link, and a blurb. I share the Roost Recommendations posts on Twitter with readers looking for their next read.
Unfortunately, a prince must mingle, even if you don’t like it.
Hmm … he should and has to as a prince, I’d say. I wonder how Pashevel will react to that.
Well too bad, Hierik. Princes have to do things they don’t want to do. As I’m sure the bard will tell him! This human prince does have a lot of growing up to do.Great snippet!
