This is the second book in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, where we find Mendanbar, the King of the Enchanted Forest, in a bit of a pickle with the local wizards. In an attempt to enlist the help of the King of the Dragons, Mendanbar mets Kazul’s Princess, Cimorene, who is just about to go looking for Kazul, who has disappeared. Figuring that the wizards must be involved, Mendanbar joins her quest.
Like the first book, this book is a ton of fun, totally turning fairy tale conventions on their heads. It’s a great, quick read, and one that’s a great ride from start to finish.
