The book is a reworking of Edmund Spenser’s epic poem “Stories from the Faery Queen” into a Y.A. novel. Just like Spenser’s poem the work is an allegory of good versus evil and each of the quests or adventures portray a “fight” young people will have to face at some point in their life. Hidden within the quests, the action and adventure are the life lessons to better equip young people before they venture into the wide world of life.
What actually happens on these quests and adventures you ask? Well you’ll just have to download this book and find out for yourself!
