ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWEB) November 15, 2018
A young princess assumes the crown when her father goes missing. Her mission is to get him back and become the warrior she is destined to be in the new coming-of-age fantasy novel, “Warrior: Book 4 in the Maagy Series” (published by Archway Press). The book is the latest in author Virginia Burton Stringer’s “Maagy Series” and is available for purchase at: https://www.amazon.com/Warrior-Maagy-Virginia-Burton-Stringer/dp/1480867950/.
Princess Maagy has survived Faith Quest and become the second woman to be knighted in five hundred years of noble history — and she is still only 16. Just when she thinks she has accomplished her greatest glory, her world comes crashing down when her father King Henry is taken hostage and spirited away in the middle of the night. She must now assume the crown and take command of the entire commonwealth armed forces before the ink is even dry on her Academy diploma. Dressed in her combat uniform with weapons at her side, she makes a solemn vow to bring her father home.
“Warrior” explores themes surrounding maturity and the strength of young women. Maagy must put her fears and misgivings about her capabilities aside to become the warrior she was trained to be. The young princess must also grapple with morality, as well as distinguish between truth and fabrication in order to rescue her father and lead her people to victory.
“There really aren’t any other books like the ‘Maagy Series,’” says Stringer. “The main character is female as is her best friend. There are several other prominent female characters as well. Unlike most coming of age stories, this one is set in the distant past without the trappings of modern technology, so there are no distractions of gadgetry to dilute the emotions. The story is pure and relevant to all young women and their struggle through the murky waters of puberty.”
