The Prince of Ill Luck - Warhorse of Esdragon 1 Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Prince of Ill Luck - Warhorse of Esdragon 1

The Prince of Ill Luck is the story of Leith, Prince of the Isles, whom everyone believes was born "cursed." Everywhere he goes, disaster follows in his wake: earthquakes, boats capsizing, buildings collapsing, etc. When he is the sole survivor of a shipwreck, he has no idea where he is, no money, no food, nothing. Then he finds Valadan, a magical warhorse wandering the interior of the isle. With Valadan's help, he is able to win the hand of the duke's daughter...but Kessallandria never intended to be won. So Leith strikes a bargain with her - he won't hold her to her promise of marriage if he can come with her to find her mother, a witch, whom he hopes can lift his curse. This is the inauspicious beginning to a grand adventure between a headstrong young lady searching for her mother, a witch, and exploring her own powers, and the Prince of the Isles, whose deplorably bad luck follows him wherever he goes.
