Emerald Prince is an ongoing serialized novel, part of the 88 Metropoleis series. It can be read here.

The novel provides examples of:

  • Crystal Spires and Togas: Calanthe is a city of tall, elaborately decorated, glowing buildings, and most people wear loose, flowing, and revealing garments.
  • Eating the Eye Candy: When Julien first meets Ruzha, sei can't help but gaze at Ruzha's scantily clad, beautiful body.
  • Everyone Is Bi: They have no gender distinctions at all in their society.
  • Gender Is No Object: That world has no gender construct at all. They have simply never invented the idea that either males or females should/n't do certain jobs, wear certain clothes, act certain ways, etc. All manners of being are equally open to everyone.
  • Kidnapped by the Call: Evindr doesn't give Julien a choice regarding whether or not sei wants to be the prince.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Most of the cast. It is the predominant style in Calanthe.
  • Mystical White Hair: Evindr has white hair and a beyond average level of magical genius.
  • Perfect Pacifist People: Calanthe is more or less this, and not as a cover for something sinister. That doesn't mean they don't have conflict. In the world of the 88 Metropoleis, no one ever invented the idea of organizing a project with the intention of harming other people — whenever anyone started to, someone was able to talk sem down before sei actually did it.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Ruzha. Ser costume is described as a flowing piece held at the waist by golden jewelry, and ser chest is always exposed. Though really, this is more common than not in Calanthe.
  • Web Serial Novel: Serialized haphazardly, but it is.
