Few authors have achieved such renown as World Fantasy Life Achievement honoree and Science Fiction Writers of America Grand Master Andre Norton. With the love of readers and the praise of critics, Norton's books have sold millions of copies worldwide. Michael Karl's dreams for the future do not include becoming the monarch of an obscure Morvanian kingdom, but he soon discovers he has no say in the matter. He, the result of a misalliance between a Morvanian Prince and an American girl, is now the sole heir to the throne; however, not all of his future subjects are welcoming. On his way to his capital, Michael Karl is captured and threatened by a rebel leader known as the Werewolf, apparently because he is one! Escaping Michael lands on the doorstep of an American journalist in the guise of a distressed fellow citizen resolutely concealing his royal identity. All Michael wants is to go home to America, but even incognito he can't help but get caught up in the political turmoil of his ancestral land and begins to wonder if maybe the Werewolf doesn't have a point after all.… (mer)

Love this - I've reread it probably a dozen times or more. It's a pretty simple story, a coming-of-age adventure in the more-or-less modern world (though most of the setting is in an isolated and somewhat - but only somewhat - backward small European nation). I adore Michael Karl, and Ulrich Karl, and Count Johann - and the Lady, and the Ultmanns, and...everybody. And hate the ones I'm supposed to hate. Though even there, there's depth of character - some of them have decent characteristics, and some don't (or at least don't display any). Battle, and horses, and misunderstandings cleared up just in time, and treachery, and loyalty, and disguises of many sorts...It's not, exactly, a deep book - but it rewards reading and rereading. It's not pure fluff either, though it's a lot of fun to read. I can't, at this point, review it for the story alone; it's got a long history with me, and I love it because I've always loved it. I will reread it again, and again, and again, I expect. ( )

Written under the psueodnym of Andrew North, because a woman cannot write science fiction - this little tale is a bit different, as it is not Sci fi, or really even fantasy. It is an early foray into adventure fiction. ( )

Here, John, is your story of "impossible things."

Once, some few years ago, a boy begged a story of me. It was to be of "sword fights and impossible things." I complied as best I could with this imaginary tale of Courts and Castles, Crown Princes and Communists. The telling of it was not in days or weeks, but in months. However, I fulfilled my promise.

"D'you know," Michael Karl flicked the chin of the boy in the mirror lightly with the thong of his riding crop, "d'you know that you're an awful disappointment and rather a failure?"

The Prince Commands was originally published in hardback under the pseudonym Andrew North, because after all, it was impossible for a woman to write good science fiction!
