The Cruel Prince

Jude was worried that he would might try to ally with the new High King or might join Lord Roiben’s Court.

Severin is the first person Jude goes to speak to about swearing allegiance to the new High King. He works out there is only one possibility, the young Prince Cardan, of whom he’s heard many things. Severin then tells Jude that he’s not the ideal candidate to help, for the very reasons she was offering is so tempting. But he says his Court is afforded little consequence. And more, He is the son of a traitor, so his honor is unlikely to be given weight.
