<strong>A magic boy. A jealous king. A dangerous discovery.</strong>
<em>The Flight</em> is a compilation of the first six books in the Fairendale series, a dark but invigorating epic fantasy series inspired by well known fairy tales, fables and nursery rhymes, from award-winning author L.R. Patton. This fast-paced literary fantasy is perfect for fans of <em>The Tale of Despereaux</em>, <em>A Tale Dark and Grimm</em>, and <em>The Land of Stories</em> series.
Prince Virgil, son of the ruling king of Fairendale, carries a dark secret—a secret that could very well mean the loss of his claim to the throne. He has told no one, and no one must know.
But a prophetess shows up at the castle with the news that there is another boy, born in the village, who carries the gift of magic—the single most important requirement for ruling the kingdom of Fairendale—the king orders his soldiers to round up all the Fairendale children, those who have the gift of magic and those who do not, and throw them in the castle dungeons until the magical boy is found and the throne can be secured.
Led by Maude and Arthur, the village magic instructor, the children of Fairendale flee for their lives, away from the only home they have ever known. But the king’s search quickly becomes a dangerous obsession that will lead the children of Fairendale through an underground portal, the arid dragon lands of Morad, and the treacherous terrain of the Weeping Woods. It will demand the lives of many, including, perhaps, the king’s own son.
<em>The Flight</em> includes:
•Book 1: <em>The Treacherous Secret</em>
•Book 2: <em>The King’s Pursuit</em>
•Book 3: <em>The Perilous Crossing</em>
•Book 4: <em>The Dragons of Morad</em>
•Book 5: <em>The Fiery Aftermath</em>
•Book 6: <em>The Mysterious Separation</em>
The world of Fairendale revolves around villains and heroes—all on a quest for what they believe is right. But one cannot always know, at first glance, who is the villain and who is the hero. Throughout the series, the story of King Willis and his determination to keep the throne of Fairendale is woven into the story of his son, Prince Virgil, heir to the throne and friend to the village children, and the story of fairy tale children fleeing for their lives—children who become what we know as fairy tale villains, for one good reason or another.
But, remember, one cannot always know, at first glance, who is the villain and who is the hero.
