Brimming with dragons, goblins, and logic puzzles, this middle-grade fantasy adventure is perfect for readers who enjoyed The Princess Bride or Rump. THE BOY is a nameless slave on a mission to uncover his true destiny. THE GOBLIN holds all the answers, but he's too tricky to be trusted. PLAIN ALICE is a bookish peasant girl carried off by a confused dragon. And PRINCESS ALICE is the lucky girl who wasn't kidnapped. All four are tangled up in a sinister plot to take over the kingdom, and together they must face kind monsters, a cruel magician, and dozens of deathly boring palace bureaucrats. They're a ragtag bunch, but with strength, courage, and plenty of deductive reasoning, they just might outwit the villains and crack the goblin's puzzle.

So much fun! I love the inventiveness and the logic (albeit sometimes twisted.) Ludwig is an atypical dragon, as well. The conclusion is satisfying, and the way we get there is highly enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this to others

I am enjoying reading this with my 10 year old. There is intrigue, dragons, slaves, boys with no name... Feels like Game of Thrones but child friendly!

The boy searches for an identity and a destiny as he fights ogres and dragons, and befriends a goblin. Readers will enjoy the quirky characters and the trickery with words and logic.

"I would like to tell you that you are sure to do better tomorrow."
"You would?"
"That is what I would like to tell you, but as I have vowed never to lie to you, I cannot."
