The Princelings of the East is the first of a trilogy telling of the adventures of Fred and George.
When the King's Birthday feast is ruined by an unnatural power drain, our Princeling heroes leave their scientific experiments to set out in search of answers. They encounter the enigmatic businessman Hugo, the impressive Prince of Buckmore, the wise Lady Nimrod, the irrepressible barkeep Victor, but find themselves threatened by those with vested interests. The scene shifts from a rural, feudal setting to the towers and heights of the curious Isle of Hattan, but where, or when, are they? Time is of the essence in solving this puzzle, and our heroes must keep their wits sharp and their heads clear if they are to survive.
This second edition addresses readability in the book to make in more accessible to good young readers. It also responds to feedback on plot complexity by taking three key passages, rewriting them with conversation rather than description.
Suitable for good readers aged 10 and over, The Princelings of the East is a fantasy adventure with the charm of the Wind in the Willows in a world reminiscent of Anne MacCaffrey's Pern.
About the Author
I've had numerous careers and enjoyed them all. I wrote all the time but couldn't find a story. Finally characters and plot arrived: The Princelings of the East are my first loves, my guinea pigs.
