Back when he was just Kardl, not the crown prince of anywhere, he had to learn to take punishment. He had to learn to fight. And it's good he learned those things, isn't it? Because the Old Court is a bad place for a young man, just turned fifteen, who looks older than his age. He's going to have to fight – he's going to have to win that fight – if he wants to get out of the trouble he's in now.

"Battle Royal" is a novella for adult and mature YA readers, set in the Underland world almost three years before the beginning of The Kura.

Battle Royal (Underland, #2)Every story has something behind it and that is true even in parallel worlds! Mary Patterson Thornburg takes us back to Underland before the events that introduced Alyssha to the world of Bandor.

Lon Kardl was just a teen, sadly used to the wrath of his stepfather and having to fight to protect himself, even in school. But his survival will require all of his strength, both mental and physical when he discovers the truth of his royal position in his world. What kind of a world has this teen become part of?

Will his young life prove the preparation he will need against the world of Old Court?
ROYAL BATTLE is a fantasy journey for older young adults and adults alike. Sometimes raw, always fascinating, Mary Patterson Thornburg has taken only a few pages to enrich the story of a parallel world humanity is clueless to. A quick read, well-written, just begging to be fleshed out into a more in depth tale!

I received an ARC edition from Mary Patterson Thornburg in exchange for my honest review.
