The Princelings of the East is the first of a trilogy telling of the adventures of Fred and George. Over three stories they solve problems caused by unintended consequences, commercial greed, unprincipled actions and blind prejudice yet still find time for troubled love affairs and disastrous inventions.
Book 1 opens with our Princeling heroes at the Castle in the Marsh. When the King’s Birthday feast is ruined by an unnatural power drain, they 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.
Suitable for ages 8 and over, The Princelings of the East is a fantasy adventure with the charm of the Wind in the Willows in a complete world reminiscent of Anne MacCaffrey’s Pern.
The trilogy is also available as a single paperback – see link for details.
