The Hero and the Crown

By: Robin McKinley, Tyler Miller

A Queen is Rising

Aerin, the kings daughter, is not treated with all the respect she deserves because her mother was a witch. The witch was said to have put a spell on the king and tricked him into marrying her but she died after giving birth to her daughter. To reclaim the thrown she has to go on an adventure to find the blue sword, battling enemies, monsters, and dragons.
