16 year old Javan Haldane is heir to the throne currently held by his dying twin brother, Alroy. But the great lords who have ruled Gwynedd since the death of old King Cinhil never let Alroy really reign--and have no intention of letting Javan inherit the throne; they prefer the more malleable youngest son, Rhys Michael. But Javan has just been using his time in the seminary as as camouflage and a way to gain the education he'll need to be king. When the time comes, Javan does succeed in claiming his rights, but can he keep his new crown? Will his supporters be strong enough to supplant the great lords?
It's a gripping book, but one that I honestly have never been able to read through completely, because I like Javan and his friends so much that I can't watch what I know happens to them (from reading the next book, The Bastard Prince).
This book starts with teen-age Javan becoming king after the death of his twin brother, who'd been controlled by the regents even past the age of majority. Javan has to battle against the regents just to be crowned in the first place and to keep fighting so they won't replace him with his younger, still minor, brother.
I hate this book for only one reason, and it directly correspondes with my fast growing love for the characters and how and when King Javan's Year comes to an end. A must read, but be prepared for tears.
