Prince Donald, the idealistic third son of the king of Westgrove, believes he may be the only one able to protect his country from an invasion spearheaded by an ancient and massive magical stone warrior known as the Warden of Mystic Defiance. Donald, unfortunately, is woefully unprepared. His only real understanding of such things comes from his reading of adventure stories. When he finds an ancient scroll he believes may allow him to take control of the mysterious Warden, he eagerly takes on the task. He dreams of saving the kingdom and becoming a hero like those in his epic adventure stories. To his dismay, his quest turns out to be nothing like he imagined. He finds the stories in his library seriously understate the complexities and hardships involved. He also soon realizes that the real world can be much more confusing than fictional ones, and that the hero is not necessarily predestined to save the day.

This book pokes fun at just about everything. Not only at your typical fantasy adventure story, but it also takes on subjects such as religion, politics, and racism. The humor is smart and subtle, mainly by using exaggerated stereotypes. It is exactly my type of humor. Amusing, entertaining, and fun. My one disappointment was when I reached the end and realized it was the end. I will be reading the sequel for more of Prince Donald and friends. Can't wait to see where the story goes. If you are looking for something entertaining and different, this is a great choice!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
