Aelin was the Prince of Crete. His mother, Lysandra, was the queen. His father was the hero, Dorian, who had died at the hands of Hera when he was just a baby.
Aelin inherited magic from his father and grandmother, Hecate, who was the goddess of magic. Sadly, hecate never visited him, for it reminded her of the son she lost. So, Aelin was forced to learn his power by himself.
Tomorrow was the day that Aelin would come age, and be old enough to inherit the throne from his mother. Aelin promised to uphold all of his fathers sacred and kind laws. Kaelin could not wait to be king.
