Princelings of the East #9

Chronicles of Marsh

Rate this book
The Princelings of the East are now King Fred and Prince Engineer George. Gone are the years of innocence when they travelled for adventure and uncovered time tunnels and pirate plots.

Now Fred, assisted by his queen, Kira, has the responsibility for his people, his lands, and for persuading the lords and kings of the Realms to act together for the common good.

George just has to work on his inventions, always thinking of a final goal: to fulfil the promises made to Lord Mariusz so long ago.

Neither has an easy task.

Fred decides to write this history of his reign. He starts with the joy of his inheritance, but quickly shows us that developments in the Realms are not leading towards a settled and happy future.

About the author

Jemima Pett

30 books327 followers
Jemima Pett has been living in a world of her own for many years. Writing stories since she was eight, drawing maps of fantasy islands with train systems and timetables at ten. Unfortunately no-one wanted a fantasy island designer then, so she tried a few careers, getting great experiences in business, environmental research and social work. She finally got back to building her own worlds, and wrote about them. Her business background enabled her to become an independent author, responsible for her own publications.

Her first series, the Princelings of the East, is now complete, with ten mystery adventures for advanced readers set in a world of tunnels and castles. There's a strong element of time travel, and relies on thinking yourself out of difficult situations! Jemima does chapter illustrations for these.

Shehas also published two volumes of Christmas stories for young readers, the BookElves Anthologies, and her father's memoirs White Water Landings, about the Imperial Airways flying boat service in Africa. Her current work-in-progress is the third in her (adult) science fiction series set in the Viridian System, in which the aliens include sentient trees.

Jemima now lives in Hampshire with her guinea pigs, the first of whom, Fred, George, Victor and Hugo, provided the inspiration for her first stories, The Princelings of the East. She is currently writing short stories for anthologies, and working on ideas for a new climate-related fiction book.

This is a fantastic addition to the series. I always love hanging out with these characters, and reading about the creative way they make things work in their wonderful world, and this book is one of my favourites of this series, even though it's more a collection of short stories in chronological order than a novel. Short story collection or novel, this is a creative and well-written book, which I highly recommend, along with the rest of the books in the series (which you should read first, if you haven't read them yet).

Well, this is the ninth book in my Princelings series, which finishes with book 10, Princelings Revolution. That is due for publication in 2020.
Chronicles of Marsh starts with Fred and Kira celebrating their life together as the new king and queen. Kira encourages Fred to keep a journal for the main events of his reign. It's a selective choice, and one that some may laugh at. Fred's interests show up, as do his brother George's. The focal point for Fred's reign is to deliver the promise he (and others) made to a certain person in Book 1. Other than that, he wants to rule in a fair and just way.
Easier said than done, on both counts.
I wrote the last two books together, to make sure that everything in book 9 made sense leading into book 10. There are some loose ends in Chronicles of Marsh, but nothing in the sense of a cliff-hanger, which I would hate.
I hope you enjoy it.
