Inhaltsangabe zu "The Lightning-Struck Heart"

Once upon a time, in an alleyway in the slums of the City Of Lockes, a young and somewhat lonely boy named Sam Haversford turns a group of teenage douchebags into stone completely by accident.

Of course, this catches the attention of a higher power, and Sam’s pulled from the only world he knows to become an apprentice to the King's Wizard, Morgan of Shadows.

When Sam’s fourteen, he enters the Dark Woods and returns with Gary, the hornless gay unicorn, and a half-giant named Tiggy, earning the moniker Sam of Wilds.

At fifteen, Sam learns what love truly is when a new knight arrives at the castle―Knight Ryan Foxheart, the dreamiest dream to have ever been dreamed.

Naturally, it all goes to hell when Ryan dates the reprehensible Prince Justin, Sam can't control his magic, a sexually aggressive dragon kidnaps the prince, and the King sends them on an epic quest to save Ryan's boyfriend, all while Sam falls more in love with someone he can never have.

Or so he thinks.

    Kurzmeinung: This is the best book ever written. If you like awkward, cute and funny sex puns. Also feelings, so many feelings.
    Best book ever

    Sam of Wilds is the King's Wizard's apprentice, a motor-mouthed, scatterbrained, awkward but utterly lovable young guy. He's got his name because he rescued a hornless, sassy, gay unicorn called Gary and a half-giant named Tiggy, who are now his best friends.
    He's in love with the immaculate and dashing knight Ryan Foxheart, who is convinced doesn't even know he exists (because he runs away whenever Ryan is anywhere near him).
    But Ryan is betrothed to the Prince, Justin, who's a bit of a dick, tbh, but even he doesn't deserve to be captured by a sexually aggressive dragon.
    So then Sam is send on a quest with Ryan to get Justin back, and the epicness begins.

    This is the best book I've read. Seriously. It is laughing out loud funny most of the time. The banter, the sass, the sarcasm. Lot's of sex jokes, innuendo, non-innuendo. The entirely weird and strange situations Sam always manages to get himself into. The super-cute awkwardness.
    The pinning! Lot's and lot's of pining. Also, oblivious Sam is oblivious.

    But it's not just funny. There characters are very well developed, and even though they tend to be very cartoony and over the top, they also feel realistic and relatable most of the time.

    The book really plays with genre expectations, as in, it throws them out. There are very few actually evil people in there. Besides the Dark wizards, who all want him dead, most people really like Sam a lot. There are his parents, who obviously have his back,  the king is a really awesome guy, as is Sam's master Morgan. Even dickward Justin has his reasons and isn't really a bad guy. The book just keeps you on your toes. You won't know what will happen (because quite frankly, Sam doesn't even know what Sam will do until he does).

    The book also manages to stay quite emotional, despite it's all out funniness. It really made me cry a few times too. There are all the feelings, all of the justified and read and great, but never silly. Well, maybe sometimes. But it's a good kind of silly.
