Mimus (book review)
Mimus, by Lilli Thal, is the story of Prince Florin. His home, Moltovia, has been at war with the kingdom of Vinland for years. Now, the king of Vinland has offered to end the war and have a celebratory banquet at Vinland's castle. But it's a trap. Florin's father and friends are thrown in the dungeon, soon to be executed, and Florin is apprenticed to Mimus, the king's lowly court jester. Florin knows the time will come when he has to rescue his father and escape from this nightmare, but when will that be?
This book was good, but not as good as some other fantasies I've read. I was sad when I finished it though, so that's a good sign. The characters were funny, and real, and multi-dimensional.
