If I’m honest I was instantly charmed by Prince Zaaki and the Royal Sword of Luella, I love a story that starts with ‘Once upon a time’ and I think really endeared me to this fantastical tale. The descriptions of the castle and the land immediately pull you into the world of Luella while also cleverly providing context and backstory.
As I think is suggested by the opening Prince Zaaki has the feel of a classical adventure to it, and we meet our prince as he first appears listless, the sets off on his adventures, with actions and peril along the way. This classical feel is continued in, perhaps as a nod to Snow White, the King’s personal assistant’s name - Helpy. I personally would have perhaps considered another name.
I liked the imaginative animals that the author has populated Luella with and this imagination extends to the magic used throughout the novel and life at the TransM School. I also really liked the illustrations in the book.
This is a book filled with adventure, and along the way Prince Zaaki might also find someone who “understands him” as he wishes. I think that this book would be good for 13 year-olds readers and it is all set up ready for the next book in the series.
Prince Zaaki and the Royal Sword of Luella is now available on Amazon UK.
Prince Zaaki is heir to the throne and his father, King Zok, has decided that on his twentieth birthday he will succeed his father and become King of Luella. Thus the Prince embarks on an expedition across his great Kingdom before the accession to the throne. Attempts to assassinate the Prince occur during his travels, danger lurks in the Royal Palace and the King and Queen of Luella are imprisoned. Prince Zaaki is taken to a mysterious Island where there is a special school for uniquely gifted children and he begins to learn and unravel the hidden secrets of souls and life.
