Life in the enchanted castle, in the center of the enchanted forest, had its benefits and its drawbacks. Emphasis on drawbacks, with 'Na's problematic 17th birthday approaching. Thanks to her parents' reputation for breaking enchantments and solving magical problems, they had numerous enemies.  Chances were good some of them had set numerous curses to take effect on her birthday. The best way to avoid trouble was to stay home, alone, and keep the doors locked.

Then clumsy Prince Ruprick and his assistant/bodyguard/troubleshooter Ambrose showed up. The prince didn't know how to take no for an answer. His father had failed at winning the Beastly Beauty for his bride, so now it was up to him to win the daughter.

Plus, Fang, the half-vampire bunny, had showed up in a bad mood.

What else could go wrong?


'Na and Ambrose set out to rescue her friend Zella, who lives in a tower and grows her hair to make wigs for dragon-tamers. The magic mirror web is down, and all sorts of legal filings are threatening Zella's peace and solitude. Along the way, they encounter Prince Ruprick and his scheming cousin Rumpton, who increases his kingdom through the new, dark magical art called real estate. Rumpton's target is Zella, her tower, and the curse that controls her hair growth business.


The enchanted castle is under attack from a patchwork monster, while some spellwork cheaters and thieves try to capture Fang, convinced he possesses a fountain of youth spell they need very badly. 'Na, Ambrose and Zella must find the elusive, ticked-off sorcerer who can stop his patchwork creation, and a nasty spell that wants to unravel other magic, before it tears apart their home.


On her first courier ride, Ash stops in a village to pick up bread for the master of the next statio house on her route. A mission of mercy to help a distraught mother turns .... tricky.
