Will civilisation collapse with a donkey on the throne?
Carson Barker certainly doesn’t think so, and quickly appoints himself into the unenviable role of imperial translator.
However, it isn’t going to be an easy ride. With assassins, blood-thirsty fishmongers and furious homemakers around every corner, each seeking to be the first to kill the new regent and seize the throne themselves, Carson finds himself squarely in the firing line by association.
Little do they know this is no ordinary donkey, and the future of the Empire, possibly even the world, rests on Carson’s ability to keep this extraordinary animal alive.
Will he manage to save his ass? Find out in the witty and action-packed book one of the Three Crowns series.
