The Goblin Twins
By Kit Barrie
What do you do when you have nothing to give and everything to lose?
Twin goblin princes Shi’chen and A’bbni Er-Ha’sen did not ever plan to take the Emperor’s throne. Older twin Shi’chen is a military prodigy, and younger twin A’bbni is studying to be a physician. But when their father attempts and fails to overthrow their cousin, the murderous crown prince, the brothers are accused of taking part in a rebellion they know nothing about.
Forced to flee for their lives, the twins find that not everything is what it seems in the goblin empire of Hanenea’a. With the help of only a half-elf sailor and a handful of nobles, the brothers must confront the Emperor and his supporters, risking everyone they love for one chance to save it all.
The Goblin Twins is a debut m/m non-magic fantasy novel with romance from Kit Barrie.
This is the first book of The Goblin Twins duology, and the first of a collection of stories set in the lands of Hanenea’a and Kendarin. It has all the angst but does have a Happy For Now ending with no cliffhanger. It does not contain twincest.
Please mind the author’s note on the first page, as this book contains sensitive material and is also not intended for children. Reader discretion is advised.
“My Cousin is unfortunately not like my Father, or even my Uncle. I… I am very worried about the future of Hanenea’a under his rule.” He had not said those words out loud in a very long time, and never not in a whisper.
“As am I,” Kella said, setting the cup aside and settling his hand under the swell of his baby bump. “I do not wish to see slavery return to these lands.”
A’bbni nodded slowly, feeling a shiver go through his own body at the memory of En’shea telling him that he would become a slave to Hi’jan. The thought that anyone might experience that fear again made him feel sick. “I do not know what the future holds for us,” he said softly, setting down his own cup and digging his fingers into the knees of his pants to stop the shaking. “But I will do everything I can to ensure that does not happen.”
“I am certain that you will,” Kella said with a small smile. “And I think you will find that others support you in that.”
“I hope so. I’m terrible at fighting,” A’bbni said, returning the smile.
Kella laughed softly, then tipped his head to the side. “I could be mistaken, but isn’t today your majority day, my lord?”
A’bbni blinked, then nodded slowly. “Yes,” he said softly.
“I’m sure this whole situation has been a shock to you, not the least of which is not getting to celebrate such a special occasion with your brother,” Kella said softly, pouring himself another cup of tea. “I hope you will excuse my forwardness, my lord, but as a parent myself, I hope it is not inappropriate of me to say that I believe your Father would be very proud of you.”
Heat burned in A’bbni’s face, then his eyes. He gave Kella a grateful nod. “Thank you, my lord. That is very kind of you. I… I feel the need for some air.”
“Of course,” Kella replied, standing to give him a bow, which A’bbni returned before leaving the office as calmly as he could. He made his way back to his room, managing to shut the door before the tears began to fall.
