Now that Mistaya is mentally an adult, but emotionally a child, and physically a teenager, the Landover series has a more serious feel to it. The focus is dimmed and shifted from Ben Holiday and the spotlight shines on Mistaya. Some of the quirky humor is mostly gone, but the dialogue of quick and witty remarks with fantastic characters keeps the once remembered good times going. Even though Questor and Abernathy still have a go at one another, they are more of a team now, really and truly working together.
And what of the black bird with the red eyes, that just appeared out of nowhere in the zoo? It keeps watching as if it’s waiting for something.
Being a child of three worlds, the High Lord wants his daughter to be aware that she can’t always have her way through the use of her magic. When she is suspended from the boarding school in Ben’s world, she is convinced that she’ll be staying in Landover to never return to Ben’s world, and continue to learn magic from Questor. (view spoiler)
When running away to her grandfather, the River Master, doesn’t go as she planned and hoped, a familiar creature of fairy returns and guides her to the one place that her father wanted her to go to in the first place, instead of hanging around Sterling Silver all day.
Once at Libris, the real danger and mystery unfolds. With the loyal but sometimes misguided companion Poggwydd, a G’home Gnome, Mistaya will have to prove to her friends, family, the kingdom, and herself that she is more than a creature of fairy and a teenager full of angst who gets anything and all she wants, but that she is A Princess of Landover too!
