Being born a wizard royal has been the wish of many Freedonian children. One could only imagine what it would be like to live in a castle, having your every need taken care of and one day becoming the King or Queen of Freedonia. These are the things that dreams are made of.The young Connors twins wake to find their clothes pressed and laid out for them as usual, but these days are far from usual. Young Prince Charlie and Kelly are unaware of the evil coming their way. The life they had come to know is coming to an end.As they head to breakfast, they know that they will be eating alone, again. They understand why their parents, Prince Charles and Lady Catherine, won’t be there. The health of their ailing grandfather, the the king, is declining. He has much to pass on to his heir and not much time left to do it in.If that is not bad enough, Drake Aldric, the Commander of the Castle Guard and the Freedonian Army has canceled the twins tenth birthday party, because of a threat made to the royal family.No one likes this lockdown, but Drake Aldric is following the Guard manual, Section Twelve, Paragraph Four to the letter. Due to the threat to the royals, he has tripled the number of guards and moved the army closer to the village. Access to the castle has been limited. Any royal leaving the royal quarters must be protected by armed security guards at all times.To make matters worse, even the twin’s three godfathers didn’t come to see the twins on their birthday. The castle staff, Molly and Mick McGruter and Sarah and Patrick Magee know why they didnt come, but they don’t have the heart to tell the twins the reason. Someone had accused their godfathers of trying to kill a pub keeper in the village. Even with finding Russell McIntyres knife at the scene, the castle staff cant believe these allegation. The victim had no memory of the incident at all. These three were not cold blooded killers. But friends couldnt understand why the three ran away. None of this made a lick of sense.Then there is the Blackthorn Prophecies, the third one to be exact. Few have ever heard of the Blackthorn Sorcerers or believe they ever existed. Fewer have heard of the three prophecies. It is said they were foretold by the last of these sorcerers, on his deathbed. It would be easy to dismiss them as mere fables or ever changing legends. They very well could be the result of someones overactive imagination.What if...the prophecies are real?With the kings failing health, the twins father, Prince Charles Connors IV will soon replace his father as King of Freedonia. He will be free to investigate all these mysterious happenings. By then, it will be too late.Only four enchanted animals are aware of the existence of the evil master plan to eliminate the Connors royal family, but what can four animals do?With all this, you might want to wish for something other than being a member of a royal family.What follows is what nightmares are made of.
