"When a troll, a hag, a wizard, and an orphan are charged with rescuing young princess Mirabella from the dreaded ogre, they know they are in over their heads. They arrive at Oglefort Castle expecting the worse, but nothing prepares them for what truly awaits. For the princess Mirabella is no ordinary princess, and the Ogre of Oglefort is not exactly what he seems either…"
During the summer gathering of unusual persons (those with magical abilities) a Hag, troll, and wizard are given a mission to rescue a princess from a fearsome ogre. When they reach their destination, they soon discover the ogre needs rescuing from the princess, and soon enough they all need rescuing from the princess’ family. A nice fantasy about friendship and loyalty.
