The White Knight, the Lost Kingdom, and the Sea Princess ~ Review

The White Knight, 
                  the Lost Kingdom, 
                                     and the Sea Princess
By Judy Carlson

Tragedy has struck the Eastern Islands and the royal family has been lost to the unmitigated evil pf the Lord Regent when he conquered the Kingdom of Ajar. Years have passed and Emperor Haroldson of the Northern Dominions has received a vision from the White Knight Aryel that the time to liberate the Eastern Islands has come.

But this quest to stop evil's dark enchantment is not without cost as Prince Lael, son of Haroldson, soon discovers. But this battle cannot be won solely on the strengths of those who calls these lands home. Two strangers from a distant land are part of the Knight's plan. But how can two children, cousins, who gave ties to Minnesota, possibly be expected to aid in this battle?

With shades of the influence of Tolkien, Lewis, and MacDonald the reader is taken on a journey faith, hope, and truth. A hidden door, an enchanted sea maid, and a love long promised all combine together for an enjoyable and exciting experience.

Be prepared to enter a world filled with fantastical creatures and a growing threat that could destroy them all.  This is a world that is bridged between by a most unusual entrance, one that is a legacy that they never knew was so close at hand. This is the fantasy world you never knew you were missing and once you enter it you won't want to leave anytime soon!

Perfect for summer reading for tweens through adults who love to delve into unknown worlds of fantasy that touch on the spirit and soul.

I was provided a review copy of this book by the publisher (through BookFun/TBCN) with no expectation of a positive review. All expressed opinions are my own.



About the Book:
Prince Lael must prove his strength and loyalty when challenged by an insidious enemy. The tragic loss of loved ones will only fortify his resolve to fight for the freedom of the lost kingdom. 

Clara and Ian, two kids from Minnesota, will join the adventure to free a captive Sea Princess, battle evil, and overcome lurking temptations. They will meet the legendary White Knight and along the way gain wisdom, love, and friendships. 

It is a story of intrigue and ever present danger in a world populated by creatures and mortals, whose destiny hangs by the threads of an Emperor’s vision, a prince’s lost love, mysterious foes, enchanting forest maidens, unlikely heroes, and a mermaid-heroine. All of this is wrapped up in a champion so invincible, yet mysterious, that he challenges the Dark Sorcerer with supernatural forces of a fascinating nature, using even the humblest of defenders. This profound love story will leave you with a taste for a country and a universe beyond your dreams and even imaginings: a world that is a fairy tale come true, and one you will never want to end.
