Description

A major standalone space opera, this is Garth Nix's first novel for older readers since the conclusion of the Old Kingdom trilogy... and it's worth the wait.


A grand adventure that spans galaxies and lifetimes, A Confusion of Princes is also a page-turning action adventure.


These are the three deaths of Prince Khemri. Told in his own words, we follow him as he trains to become a Prince of the Empire, an enhanced human being, equipped with biological and technological improvements that make him faster, stronger and smarter than any ordinary person. Not to mention the ultimate benefit: should he die, and be deemed worthy, he will be reborn...


Which is just as well, because no sooner has Prince Khemri graduated to full Princehood than he learns the terrible truth behind the Empire: there are a million princes, and all of them want each other dead, because there can only be one Emperor...

Our customer reviews

I loved this book, Garth Nix has done it again! This is closer to science fiction than what I usually read but it reads so easily and the story has such an interesting ending compared to what one could expect from the beginning of the story, which is exactly what I like in a story: twists and turns that are not expected. I recommend to all!show more
