Raja and the Throne of Zurkia
When Raja, a peasant in a village outside of a royal manor, is appointed by a young lord, Pavel, to serve in the manor, she quickly meets Hannah, her long-lost cousin, and learns of her real status—Princess and heir to the throne of Zurkia. But Hannah’s father, known as the Dark Prince, wants Raja gone so he can rule the kingdom.
After Raja is awarded a double-edged sword, her test of bravery and faithfulness has just begun. Caught in a corrupt society of slavery and abduction, she becomes its victim, and the Dark Prince, who vows to take over the throne of Zurkia, seeks to destroy Raja and the royal family.
On her journey, Raja relies on the wise words of Hannah: “Doing good will heal your soul.” While the security of the throne diminishes and hope is almost lost, new confidence resurrects when Raja learns that the people she’s touched along the way are eager to help her. Together, they embark on the battle for survival.
Peasants from across the land of Zurkia are disappearing by scores. When Princess Raja discovers that they have been abducted, she convinces Lord Viktor to allow her—along with her friend Pavel and cousin Hannah—to get to the bottom of it.
Armed with secret maps found in father Antom’s trunk from his years as a slave, the friends are convinced the Tyhet’s Thrumb Castle holds clues to the peasants’ whereabouts. But the excursion quickly becomes dangerous—an unannounced visit to Shamra at Levap Castle lands the friends in a dungeon. Tyhet warriors roam the woods, and the Dark Prince is determined to capture Hannah and use her in his plans to rule Zurkia.
Suddenly, stories of an enigmatic peasant reach Raja who might hold the answers to many mysteries piling up. With the threat of kidnappings, dungeons, and labor camps, Princess Raja must keep her spirit of faith strong as she and her friends venture forth to bring justice to the kingdom and uncover the long lost truth about her family.
