Lornyc Reagalos, future High Lord of the city of Katraman, enjoys his life as a student, even if he has to keep his relationship with Methian Hadral, heir to the throne of Xenetra, a secret. Unfortunately, Lornyc isn’t just any royal student – he’s also the grandson of an infamous magic user named Romanus Reagalos, and his grandfather’s wild youth is about to catch up with him. Unknown to anyone else, Romanus saw fit to sign his grandson into the life of a valet. Specifically, Methian’s valet.
The contract – and the strain it puts on his relationship with Methian – is just the start of Lornyc’s troubles. Though the Reagalos family was once famous for its magic, Lornyc’s father never showed any aptitude, and Lornyc hasn’t either—though that doesn’t make the next contract, the one that says Lornyc must learn to use his latent powers, any less binding. When Lornyc learns of a plot to remove his father from power, he finds himself racing against time. If he can’t master his magic and identify the leader of the plot, he stands to lose everything he knows and loves: his parents, his rank, and Methian.

What readers are saying:
Servitude is a wonderful fantasy piece that deviates from the traditional elves and humans to give us a unique world that has science as well as magic, without being science fiction. Set in a world with five cities ruled by five families, political intrigue is high and the danger to our main character, Lornyc Reagalos, even higher.
I loved the feel of the story, the combination of multidimensional science along with magic was new plot base and created a different vibe with orb powered portals and horse drawn carriages. Added to that, Noble families with servants reminiscent of feudal lords, a rich background is drawn for the story to take place on.
