Not so long ago, I went to Cambodia and Vietnam with a few buddies from work. I was super thrilled to go, but honestly, it was also a little bit terrifying and unnerving. What if something happened to me? What if I get lost and no one knew where I was? Even though these circumstances had been at the back of my mind, what stopped me from getting all worked up are the escapades and experiences that I am going to stumble upon during the journey. After all, life is an adventure, right?
This story is about Prince Bennett of Ziemia, and his mission that will most certainly usher him to his doom, with his new friend Melissa. They come face to face with witches, bandits and evil monsters on a quest to save Melissa's cousins and to take back a precious gem in that will help save their village. Although he was a prince, I loved that there were fun kid things that he still did like buying toys and playing outdoors. I loved that he would want to go to different towns and villages and feel a sense of belonging and familiarity with his people. It really did paint an accurate portrait of a really good, young prince, next in line to be a king.
