Do You Believe In Magic?
The Tenth Kingdom is a contemporary drama, set in a world where fairy tales, folklore and traditional myths come to life.
The story follows the fortune of Virginia, a New York waitress, who unwittingly finds herself in the fantasy world of the Nine Kingdoms, where she must save a prince from the clutches of his evil stepmother, and restore him to the throne.
This is a modern, epic tale of good versus evil that will grip the imagination and leave you spellbound.
My thoughts on the novel: The Tenth Kingdom is one of my favourite fantasy books. It’s based on a successful Hallmark mini-series. Famous fairytales, myths and legends are revisited in this captivating story where magic and reality merge beautifully.
The characters are very endearing, the intrigue is action-packed, and carefully sprinkled with a lovely sense of humour. Will Virginia and her father manage to find the traveling mirror to return to New York? Can they defeat the Evil Queen and help Wendell take his throne back?
It is an emotional journey from down-to-earth Manhattan to the incredible, multifaceted lands of this magical realm where you’ll meet trolls, fairies, princes and princesses, among many other fascinating creatures.
It will appeal to both the young and the young at heart.
