It’s hard growing up in a House of Evil Queens when you have a conscience and are sworn to uphold the integrity of Science and Atheism. “Sweet” Blossom is a princess in waiting with big ideas on how to change the world, but she must contend with her scheming family, not to mention a sexual, cultural, and social revolution happening all over Cadabra.
A woman destined to inherit power has many friends, suitors, and enemies hiding behind smiling faces. She must choose her friends carefully. Prince Aaron is a nice guy and an old-fashioned idealist who struggles with the new wave of feminism. Tom Callin is a foul-mouthed, two-faced opportunist who hides behind fake mouse ears and corporate promises. And then there is the Big Bad Wolf, a master of disguise and an actor with an incredible range of false emotion.
Blossom can only choose one path on the road to Sainthood. Will she follow her morals, her ambitions, or her aching heart?
If you enjoy fairy tale political satire that makes you laugh and cry, and fairy tale spoof novels mixed with gallows humor, The End of the Magical Kingdom will make you sing.
ADVISORY: Although a funny novel, this book also contains graphic violence, toxic emotional turmoil, foul language, and controversial subject matter.

About the Author
L. M. Warren is a freelance writer, humorist, novelist, and prophet. “Real Estate in Deltosa” was published in Chimeraworld #6. Published novels include The End of the Magical Kingdom series (1: The Evil Princess, 2: The Saint of Science, 3: The Watchmaker's Child), Attempted Rapture, and Raining Cats and Dogs.
The final episode of The End of the Magical Kingdom, The Broken Divine, is coming in Winter 2021.
Warren explains being accustomed to being the “lone wolf”, in most storytelling endeavors – the tortured artist who captivates the audience but never actually gets invited to all the Capote-esque aftershow parties. The author's tendency to withdraw from groups naturally drew a target audience of anti-socials, outliers, and ageless Orwellian types. “I grew up lacking a strong base of friends and writing so was my outlet for excess energy and booming creativity. The first works I ever wrote as a child and read aloud were either praised for being unusually realistic or criticized for being too disturbing.”
Some critics of Warren say the writer can’t decide whether to hurt someone’s feelings or make them belly laugh. An antagonistic writer in soul, Warren strikes at the heart and tickles the funny bone – all the while poking people with uncomfortable truths and from multiple points of view. “I do tend to challenge my reader,” Warren says, “because I believe the Writer has an obligation to be a Teacher, not just an Entertainer. Mainly, my motivation is to help open the minds and hearts of people just a little bit more. We need more tolerance, more deep thinking, and yes, more revolution in our society.”
