Thanks for having me here C.K. Quest Of The Hart is a A reverse Sleeping Beauty tale where the princess
goes on the quest to save the prince.
A reverse Sleeping Beauty tale where the princess goes on the quest to save the prince.
Princess Kaylee has never had to fight for anything. Her entire life has been arranged, even her marriage. But when Prince Devlin falls under an enchantment, she finds she is willing to do anything to save him, even if it means fighting a dragon.
Devlin's own sister, Princess Arabella, is behind the deadly plot. She wants the throne and will use any means necessary to gain it. Her perfect plan unravels, leaving Devlin caught in a magical sleep that is slowly spreading through the kingdom of Breniera. All Arabella needs to finish
her spell and claim the crown is a drop of Kaylee's blood, but obtaining the single drop is proving more difficult than expected.
To save her betrothed, Kaylee embarks on a quest to find an ancient sword and gather a drop of dragon's blood, while trying to stay out of Arabella's traps. But Arabella's traps aren't the only danger. Time is everything. For once the last inhabitant of the kingdom falls asleep, the spell will be sealed, and not even true love's kiss will break it.
You also have a surprise for us...an interview with a few of your characters. I'm excited to meet them. Without further ado...Please meet Print Devlin!
Mary: Welcome, Prince Devlin.
Devlin: Please, call me Devlin.
(He smiles, his silver eyes shining like coins, and I barely hold back a sigh.)
Me: Oh, well, thank you so much, Devlin, for taking time away from your duties to chat. I'm sure you have so much to do, with your wedding just a week away. And speaking of your wedding, I have a few questions
about Princess Kaylee.
D: I'll answer what I can, but I only have a few minutes. Kaylee and I are going for a ride soon.
Me: I'll be as quick as I can, then. So, how did you and Kaylee meet?
D: We have an arranged marriage. In fact, until a few days ago, I'd never seen her. But, now that I have, I can say she's wonderful. Kind, caring, smart, funny. Did I mention beautiful?
(Princess Arabella saunters in during his descriptions and groans.)
Arabella: Please, isn't there anywhere I can go in this castle where it isn't Kaylee this and Kaylee that? I thought it was bad when it was Devlin this and Devlin that. Things will be different before the day is out, though, I promise you that.
D: What do you mean?
A: Nothing. Aren't you supposed to be out riding with Kaylee?
D: Oh, yes. I'm late. It was very nice meeting you. I hope you enjoy the wedding.
(Devlin leaves, and Arabella smirks.)
A: Not if I have anything to say about it.
(She slinks from the room.)
Me: Well, I guess we'll just have to read Quest of the Hart to see what that was all about!
Thanks for joining me Mary. And many thanks to your characters. Can't wait to read Quest Of The Hart!
