"Princess Sitnalta has always been curious about her mother. All she knew of her had come from stories told by her former governess, and the current Queen, Aud. All this was about to change.Coming across a room in the castle, Sitnalta finds herself surrounded by a veritable treasure-trove of information. Surrounded by her mother's belongings and letters, Sitnalta is sent on a trip into Learsi's past. Learning about her mother's history with the enigmatic wizard Kralc, and their trip to the dangerous City of Arches, Sitnalta unlocks the truth about the mysterious coin, and about the person the former Queen really was."
I honestly hate writing the mini blurbs describing what a book is about. I don't like having to boil down a plot into a couple of measly paragraphs. But basically the gist of the story is a prequel/flashback tale that takes place when Sitnalta's mother is a young woman and is a bit of an adventure story. I always knew where the magic coin came from, and the back stories of all my characters. I look at this book as my chance to really set it all down. What do you guys think? Knowing the fates of some of the people who will be in the book, does that take away from any suspense that may build? Or is it interesting to know how things all came to pass?
