Ever wondered how would an adult fairytale look like?!
I think, something like this.
A solid read, even though the climax of the story happens way too early.

The Queen of Xana is a 2018 historical medieval fantasy novel from author Fred Pilcher. It follows the story of Princess Agatha of Xana as she goes from Princess to Queen of the country of Xana while trying to lift her people from poverty to prosperity.

I enjoyed this book. i found the morals and values of Agatha very comforting. I wish real life was more lie this. i found the writing style easy to follow with no complicated plot lines. It was a nice enjoyable read. I read this whilst on holiday. I did find the authors comments throughout the story very strange. It was necessary to keep the reader on tract. It was a concept I was not familiar with.
