This is a series that has been out of print almost since I read it several decades ago .... Nobody really ever heard of it then or since, yet it made a huge impression on me and I have never, ever forgotten it. I read voraciously as a child and still do now but out of the many thousands of books I've read this series will always be near the top of my Top 10. It's really good - is that coming across yet? ;-)

Harris' adventure takes us through such unexpected wonders, such brilliant character arcs and such a convincingly immersive fantastical world. You can really hear and smell the amazing environments you encounter. Her characters are so incredibly believable despite their fantasy names, with very relatable flaws and weaknesses. Teenage Kerish is a stunning prince with magical powers but what you remember of him is his very realistic journey from irritatingly spoilt teen to a man who is shaped by the people and experiences we encounter through the story. At the outset you want to really punch him but by the end you'd lay down your life for him. Harris is a genius with characters.

She is unafraid of making you travel into some pretty dark places in this story and it's both exciting and emotionally exhausting. You will not believe how far-flung and epic this series feels and how indelibly it leaves an impression on your mind when you consider that this action-packed rollercoaster takes less time to read than a single Harry Potter! Less time to read, but far longer to absorb, because there is so much more story in far fewer words.

I feel guilty for wanting almost to keep this series a secret, but really I do - because It is too much of a pearl to see it cast before swine as it were.

Strange, exotic lands are beautifully described and brought to life in this story, which takes you on a journey through beauty and terror in the company of a prince and his half-brother.

The love-hate relationship between the two main characters provides an interesting psychological depth to the narrative; it often makes you want to shake some sense into them, but whatever they do, you still care for both the brothers.

Any lover of fantasy, young or old, should enjoy this book.

I got really excited about fantasy as a teenager. I had loved childrens' books, and now I got excited about this. "Prince of the Godborn" is one of those books that appealed in a very personal, almost secret way. I read it when I was 14 and again at 16. It takes place in the Galkian Empire, an ancient civilization, full of beauty and haunting memories. Prince Kerish-lo-taan is called godborn because he is descended from Zeldin, the gentle god who preached peace, love and moderation, and a mortal woman. This god reminded me of Buddha or even Jesus Christ.
However, Prince Kerish is only too human. The rest of the imperial family are caught up in mysterious plots and intrigues, factions cease power. Barbarians are already attacking the imperial borders, and the emperor himself has grown weak. Kerish wants to save the empire, and so Lord Izeldon, the High Priest, sends him on a quest, to the seven sorcerors, as he needs their keys to release the Saviour from prison.
In this book, the path is upward, away from shadows, towards the sunlit uplands of high adventure. I loved the adventures, and the description of a beautiful land on the brink of danger. The book is well-written and brilliantly realized.
