This is the story of a girl who wants to be ordinary. Her name is Lara and when this story begins she is only ten years old and has been sent to live in a castle that houses a wealth of strange characters. There she meets Tren-Lore, a young prince who is probably the most unusual of the lot. He has never had any hope of being ordinary for he was born into a world where magic is a reality, mythical creatures are found outside the pages of books, and your fate is limited only by your imagination. Tren-Lore befriends Lara and draws her into his world. She soon realizes that where there are heroes and magic, there are also villains and peril and the only way to survive is to be anything but ordinary.
