Description
The first book in the Crowns and Kingdoms series, Norris Bloom takes you back in time to the medieval days of Tarshish. The king of Tarshish summons a secret meeting of all the noble kings from kingdoms near and far, putting forth the idea of a secret pact. In order to preserve their kingdoms, each king reluctantly agrees to fake the death of their next born child. Secretly placed in a cottage, the children are taught the virtues needed to be honorable and effective rulers. As the children grow older, Judoc and his Night Invaders continue their assault on the kingdoms. When Judoc claims the throne of Magog and turns his sights on Tarshish, young Zora is forced into battle. With the help of her best friend, Sundiata, Zora uses her head and her heart to defeat Judoc and save the kingdom of Tarshish.
