It is very hard to describe this story. It is a very charming read and I really enjoyed the characters. The whole place the author has create is a very magical place. The names they have are very cute and some of the places I had to laugh at as they are very charming. There is magic in this book as well but I won't give any of that away.I will say it does play a big part in the story. This is a book I would let a teen read as well as it is a clean book. The romance is so sweet and you see these two will let nothing stand in the way of their love. The villain is someone you can hate but you also get to laugh at him along with everyone else at times. There is action as they hint for clues and try to save the kingdom from falling into deeper destruction. For a wonderfully sweet story that will charm you give this one a try.
