The Princess Kristin
A Tale of Love, Loyalty and High Adventure
By: Jack Graybill
About the Book
The Wizard of Meisendorn-on-the-Rhein has died, leaving his only daughter with the secrets of his magic. As Kristin, the Wizard’s daughter, learns more, she becomes a hero to the town of Meisendorn, using her wits and talent to heal the sick and help the poor. Soon she meets the charming and noble Prince Friedrich and wins his heart. But their story doesn’t end there with happily ever after.
The Prince and Princess face a series of daring adventures and vile villains: the Demons’ Tower, with its host of bandits and undead; the bloodthirsty army of the evil Dreltholst Veister; the cunning witch Hex-aba with her grotesque minions. And, of course, the most exciting adventure of all: the adventure of raising a family.
The Princess Kristin is an epic of sword-and-sorcery fantasy and romance in which true love really does conquer all.
