As ninth in line for the throne, Argus knows he is never to be king, but that doesn't stop him from seeking every opportunity to gain political power. More than anything he wants to escape his engagement to his cousin and, due to complications surrounding the origins of his birth, to be seen as an equal to his brothers.
          
          He gets his chance when a diplomatic visit reveals the plot of a stolen cargo ship that could cause national unrest for the empire, its alliances, and possibly even war.
          
          However, finding the stolen cargo proves to be more difficult than he thought and his only captured suspect, a pirate named Leonardo, won't tell him all the secrets he's keeping. As Argus and Leo grow closer, both to each other and discovering where the cargo disappeared, they uncover a plot that threatens the lives of their allies and enemies alike.

Loving this so far. The description is great and characters. Though there are simple mistakes such as capitalizations and punctuations.  Definitely an enjoyable first chapter.
It's funny how Aayden doesn't even realize he's being patronizing.

This is a great start for the book, it drew me in right away :D  I'm confused who Enyo is, exactly, and why he is accompanying Prince Argus. Surely someone would feel suspicious of how close the two are, other than Aayden?
I am getting a vibe that Damaris is annoying and egotistic? If she is hope she isn't too much of a problem.

Argus is such a savage man, I'm thriving. Enyo is also savage. This makes me happy. I can tell Argus isn't a nice guy, but i love him nonethless. Nice start.
The description is really good. In the last line, I am confused if it was specially made for the boots or got it, especially for the boots. I think if you add "made" after "specially" it would clarify. Again great description.
