The Genius Prince's Guide to Raising a Nation Out of Debt (Hey, How About Treason?): Book 1

Toru Toba

It ain't easy being a genius...

Prince Wein is ready to commit treason. And who can blame him? Faced with the impossible task of ruling his pathetic little kingdom, this poor guy just can't catch a break! But with his brilliant idea of auctioning off his country, this lazy prince should be able to retire once and for all. Or that was the plan... until his treasonous schemes lead to disastrous consequences-namely, accidental victories and the favor of his people!

Toru Toba

His people might laud him for being the next great ruler, but Prince Wein of Natra has been conspiring behind their backs to live the languid life of a retired teen. Now, a major roadblock stands in his way. Ever since he won a war with a neighboring country, he's become a household name all across the land... which, frankly, sucks. And as if things couldn't get any worse, Prince Wein has just met his newest challenger: the Imperial Princess Lowellmina, who's here for a secret favor-to ask for his hand in marriage?! It's just too good to be true! Well, this genius's instincts may be spot-on, because there's something lurking behind her plan to make Wein her trophy husband...

It ain't easy being a foreign guest...

After narrowly dodging a marriage proposal, Prince Wein is accosted by a messenger from the Kingdom of Cavarin, which can only mean bad news... and unfortunately, he's absolutely right! The messenger cordially invites him to the Festival of the Spirit to celebrate the biggest religion in the western side of the continent: the Teachings of Levetia. Oh, and this event just happens to coincide with a gathering for the most influential group in the West, which is also in Cavarin. Either way, it's not an invitation Wein can turn down easily, even though he knows he's just begging for more trouble...!

IT AIN'T EASY BEING A GOOD BROTHER!

It's time for the three Imperial princes to meet and argue their way to the throne in the city of merchants, Mealtars. Sounds like a good opportunity for Wein to take a breather since this gathering obviously has nothing to do with him... until Imperial Princess Lowellmina goes out of her way to invite him to Mealtars, too. But Wein's already learned that it's always better to decline her offers. Turns out, things would have gone smoother if he'd just attended, because now he has to deal with a whole new problem: his sister, Falanya, going in his stead!

IT AIN'T EASY BEING A DIPLOMAT!

After the debacle in Mealtars, all eyes are on the small kingdom of Natra. The citizens are partying it up! Meanwhile, Prince Wein is busy fretting over Marden, a newly acquired territory basking in good fortune, much to the envy of his loyal subjects. To prevent the scales from tipping too much in Marden's favor, he's starting to think it might be necessary to form some kind of alliance with King Gruyere from Soljest. As if answering his prayers, an invitation lands in his lap-from the great king himself!

IN THE UNEXPLORED REACHES OF THE OCEAN

Clear skies. Deep-blue sea. Tropical sun baking the sandy beach. Wein finds himself whisked away to the Patura islands in the tropical south, trying to make the best use of his access to the port in Soljest. These islands are at the top of his list of potential trade partners, and if he doesn't come back to Natra with a deal in hand... let's just say his monthly expenses might run him completely dry. It seems, however, that the gods are not on his side: One little slip-up lands him behind bars in the island nation. The only silver lining, it seems, is that his neighbor the next cell over seems like an interesting guy... who might have some-thing to do with the hunt for the Rainbow Crown, a piece of treasure housing magic that can control all of Patura!

Toru Toba

Imperial Prince Demetrio and his advisers are stumped. And for good reason, too. Wein, the Crown Prince of Natra, has joined their meeting, and he wasn't really invited. Wein is technically only here to return a favor to Imperial Princess Lowellmina, who can't stand to watch her three brothers rip each other apart for the throne. Somehow or other, he finds himself teamed up with Demetrio, who seems like he's the least likely of the three to become the next emperor...

TROUBLE AHEAD

The Gathering of the Chosen. Prince Wein inexplicably lands himself an invitation to the conference featuring some of the most influential figures from the western side of the continent. Obviously, it has to be a ploy to make him sever ties with the Empire in the East, and it wouldn't be advisable to walk into a trap when he wants to remain neutral...

The prince, however, has never been one to heed sound advice! Waltzing headlong into danger, no sooner has Wein set foot in the host city of Lushan than he finds himself framed for the murder of a Holy Elite--and that's just the beginning of his troubles...!

TURNING TRADITIONS ON THEIR HEAD

At the behest of Holy Elite Agata, Wein visits the Ulbeth Alliance, a nation made of four city-states perpetually locked in a power struggle. While Agata asks for assistance unifying the nation, Wein suspects the man is after something a little less altruistic. Still, he goes along with it and launches a campaign that will disrupt long-standing traditions and upset the delicate balance of power in Ulbeth. But when have such paltry concerns ever stopped the prince of Natra?
