The Prince’s Plight

The Prince’s Plight

Not all fairytales are about beautiful princesses and dashing princes. Some are about the corpses living below our very feet....

Reviewer Tyler Quevedo says of The Balderdash Saga series: "If you're looking for a short read with great life lessons and core values for a budding adult, I'd recommend this book!"

After defeating Maleer, the people of Balderdash work to expand their kingdom by exploring the vast caverns in search of more graveyards. Although Hurlock and the shaman have adopted Kaylan, few in Balderdash trust the prince. Scarlet barely speaks to him, and Screech is the only one to show him affection. To escape the tension, Kaylan unofficially joins the Spelunkers, a group created by the shaman tasked with mapping the caverns.

On one of his excursions, Kaylan is startled to hear a woman’s scream. After locating the source, he watches from the shadows as two men chase her down, swords drawn.

Kaylan realizes with horror that humans stand merely an hour’s walk from Balderdash. He faces a critical decision. Should he run away to warn the rest of the underground kingdom about the human invaders in the caverns, or risk losing his life—and compromising the location of Balderdash—to save the woman?
