I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
When a banished son's family is killed, he's brought back to his home planet to rule. After all, his family was the Maestro, a wizard, a ruler, and a living god. (Which didn't stop him from being killed. And his family from being killed.)
A little sadder, but funny. Not quite enough to give me five stars; I wasn't charmed by some of the characters like I was in the comics and graphic novels I'd just read.
