This is the story of two young sisters dearly loved by their parents.
Their parents are King and Queen of KenKarta and they are young
In KenKarta, everyone has gifts and they are expected
to develop these gifts to their highest. The young princesses, Sophia
and Veronica, have already developed a talent for talking to magical
creatures and are working diligently on their Imperium pieces.
Their father, the King, has gone away to Dragontier to help solve
some problems and their mother, the Queen, soon follows.
On the evening that the Queen leaves Sophia disobeys her and leaves
the castle in hopes of seeing her mother once more before she departs.
Out of the darkness, an evil dragon swoops down and kidnaps the
young princess and sets off a series of events that will keep the
reader up way past their normal bedtime.
As Veronica, the older sister, and a young stable boy named Zane
must use all of their gifts and skills in order to save Sophia,
the kingdom prepares for a possible war.
KenKarta is written by Alison Kartevold with the help
of her young daughters. Together they have created a world where
there are not only dragons and faeries but many other fantastical
creatures both good and horrible.
A young reader would be enchanted and enthralled to be admitted
into this magical place.
