Ever since the Queen mysteriously disappeared and the King went mad five years ago,eleven-year-old Princess Charlie has lived a wild and mostly unsupervised life in the country of Quale—until now. With the discovery of an unfinished letter in the Queen’s handwriting, Charlie embarks on a quest to find her mother and save the kingdom from a revolution. With Tobias, the gardener’s boy, by her side, every step closer to the Queen pulls Charlie deeper into an entangling web of lies and secrets—as twisted as the dark castle—where nothing is as it seems.
