This worked so well with the last novel figured i would run the second one past the forums lol As a result of last time of doing I pulled all prophecy out and a couple of other things and wow what a difference to my story thanks to all who helped with that I think this one is a lot less original than the last one and I may not be able to change things but its worth getting opinions 1) My main character is gay and I know its cliche but its staying it is told in first person present tense from his perspective. 2) In the previous novel he abdicated as Crown Prince leaving his seventeen year old brother as King. 3) He is partnered to head of the secret service (yep I know lol) and he is the Deputy Headmaster at the school. 4) His partner and the Queen are kidnapped. 5) He and his brother go to find them and most of the novel has just these two characters in it. 6) He and his boyfriend have a psychic connection that increase their powers 7) He discovers that he is not his parents child and that the Lord of all Evil (who turns out to be maligned rather than evil) is his Father. As a result he will only die if he reproduces. He's the only other character that appears outside the first two and last two chapters - I think. 8) Over the time period of the novel he learns his own capablities and that he could become the best conductor of the universal powers that has existed in over 500 years. 9) Bit Arthurian but he kills his twin sister at the end (she had kidnapped his partner) 10) At one point he tried to commit suicide. 11) He has the ability to transform into a Swan, he is the first person in 500 years to achieve this bird. The previous one was the original Chief Priestess.
