SPINDLE: What do you do when your prince is not a prince, your hair won't stop growing, and someone has cursed you to sleep for 300 years?
If you're Polyhymnia, you get up with the help of a kiss or two, trailing your hair behind you, and find out who did it. You try not to get killed in the process.
And you definitely try not to fall in love with the incredibly irritating wizard who woke you and apparently needs to keep kissing you to keep you awake...
Annabel has never wanted a cat. She certainly didn't want BLACKFOOT, a secretive, sarcastic black cat who takes over her pillow and makes remarks that no one else ever seems to hear. Despite that, Blackfoot manages to slink into her life like a small, furry shadow.
Now Annabel and her friend Peter are being over-run by cats. More and more arrive each day, turning up at the old castle ruins where Annabel and Peter spend most of their time. And some of those cats aren't asfriendlyas Blackfoot.
As for Blackfoot; he knows more than he's telling, and what he's not telling could be enough to get them all killed...
STAFF & CROWN: Three years have passed since Annabel defeated Mordion in the Royal Castle and became the Queen Heir of New Civet. Three years of statecraft, politics, and meeting important people are over. Now, before she is officially acknowledged as the Queen Heir, Annabel will face her biggest challenge: Trenthams Finishing School for Young Ladies.
To win her Staff and Crown, Annabel had to deal with a deadly foe, a slightly self-aware castle, and a more-than-slightly-potty wizard. Now she will contend with corsets, diets, and sharp-tongued socialites; not to mention the Old Parrasian revolution that seems to be brewing in the bowels of the school itself.
In fact, Trenthams might be even more dangerous and cryptic than the Royal Castle. It's a good thing Annabel has the staff, her cat, and her trusty advisor, Isabella
