Going on a quest with a handsome prince might sound like a dream, but Prince Rupert’s cousin Carole came to feel that it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Carole agreed to accompany her hunky cousin to Miragenia to christen his baby niece. But it was really hard to even explain the situation to anyone, how the little Princess had been stolen from her mother’s side by Miragenians who had demanded fifteen years of the first-born’s life in exchange for a bit of help during wartime. Or how the baby had been taken before magical christening gifts could be bestowed upon her for her protection and character development. The ladies surrounding Rupert (also known as Rowan the Romantic and Rowan the Rake) didn’t care about some baby and didn’t hear anything about the mission because they were too busy sighing over him. Crowd control was an obvious problem, as was extricating Rupert from more than one involuntary engagement. When at last the two, with the help of dubious questing companions including a love-stricken pink and purple dragon, arrived at the theocracy of Gorequartz where the baby had been fostered out to a queen, they found themselves in trouble of a completely different complexion. Their most deadly nemesis was none other than a giant crystal “god” seemingly created in Rupert’s own image!
