Massachusetts’ own bestselling fantasy writer has brought another captivating story to life. I will not be surprised if this is made into a movie someday soon. Deep fantasy and an unconvential love trianble are the cornerstone of this tale. Hazel is the lead character, and she is a girl character who rocks! Growing up she always played the knight and I can not imagine her as a damsel in distress. Her brother Ben is blessed with a musical talent that, like all blessings, brings nearly as many problems as it solves. Ben has also been “out of the closet” for a few years, and is comfortable, albeit a little lonley with the limited dating options in their small town. They are both in love with a prince who lies in a glass casket in the woods, where teens have been going to party for generations. The prince has become a turist attraction, so the mayor is really concerned when one day the casket is shattered and the prince is missing. Guess who ends up tangled in the prince’s affairs - affairs Hazel and Ben’s family’s actions in the past basically guaranteed future complications? Love, shifting loyalties, betrayal, and plenty of well-paced action. What’s not to like? Check Out Catalog
