The Kingdom of Soron bustled with activity as preparations for the Fall Festival began. Lively merchants, hardworking farmers, and musicians eagerly awaited this event of harvest and joy. This year’s festival was even more important, as they celebrated Princess Madeline’s betrothal to her knight champion, Daniel. 

Celebration quickly turns to disaster as Prince Paulsen returns with curious demands, either Princess Madeline will be his, or no ones. Rejection turns to obsession and battle is declared.

In a tense struggle to decide her future, Princess Madeline must choose where to put her trust… in the king’s tried and true plan, the wizard’s cryptic messages and maps, or her own sense of bravery. Follow Princess Madeline on this adventure as she battles evil in an attempt to create a future of love and magic.

Disney Princesses with a kick!

Every author dreams of positive reviews.  One of my favorites was this, from Burgandy Ice at Colorimetry…““Reminded me of a Disney movie with all the heart-swelling moments anyone could wish for.”

Which made my heart swell!  And got me thinking, to the tag line for The Princess Madeline series…Disney Princesses with a kick!

The Escape of Princess Madeline and The Battle for Princess Madeline are coming of age fairytales with aspects of fantasy and adventure to enchant all readers.  They are formed in the traditional style of fantasy and fairytales, with a modern twist.  With that in mind… how does Princess Madeline stack up against some of our Disney favorites?

Jasmine – Both these princesses run away to avoid being forced to marry a man they do not choose.  Their returns and consequences are a bit different.

Sleeping Beauty – They both have suitors fighting to save them…One gets help from fairies, the other from wizards.

Rapunzel – Both of their dreams take them on adventures with bandits.  Not all as dreamy as Flynn Rider.

Merida –Both princesses dream of adventure and a life of their choosing.  Only one turns their mom into a bear.

Snow White– True love wins out in the end for both.

So make a dream, a wish, and follow your heart’s desire.  Take a look at your favorite princess fairytales, and add Princess Madeline to your list.

Happy Birthday Kirstin on May 27th!!

The Kingdom of Soron is known for many things, its rolling landscape, haunting history, fiery sunsets, and its beautiful princess.

Using her charm, strength and stubbornness, she defies the King at every turn, determined to keep her freedom on her terms.

Freedom quickly turns to disaster as she finds herself seized by a group of wandering bandits. With the kingdom in turmoil over her capture- her Knight Champion eager to prove himself, a group of dedicated suitors determined to win her hand, and a group of exiled wizards join forces in the hunt to rescue her. Follow Princess Madeline in this adventure to find freedom and love.
