A darkness has descended upon the land. The Heaps, while they had to live through the death of their seventh son at birth, saved a baby girl on that same day. Years later that day comes back to haunt them when they find out that baby was really the princess who didn’t die at birth.
The Heaps have to try to keep the princess safe from a dark wizard and without the help of the Extra-ordinary wizard who has been locked up.
It is a tale full of magic and intrigue for the middle grade reader. The characters are well-drawn.
