The Thief, the Crown, and the Pegasus by Jessica West



My rating:  4  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

Powerful sorceress Inesmera stole Princess Nalssay’s coronation crown, and no one in the entire kingdom will try to help her get it back. The princess sneaks out via the secret passage in her room and across the castle grounds until she reaches the dark forest. It is said that the evil sorceress inhabited the thick woods, and that her powers have invaded the whole of them until the trees no longer belong to the Mother Earth. Nalssay is determined to recover her precious treasure. She braves the woods, trekking deep inside, only to find Inesmera’s castle is on an island in the middle of a lake, and there is no boat or bridge in sight.

Princess Nalssay must find a way to cross the lake, and come up with a plan to take back her crown when she gets there.


My Opinion

This book is about Princess Nalssay and her adventure to retrieve her coronation crown. I will not tell you more about the story than shown in the Goodreads plot description. This would spoil the fun of reading this book yourself.

With The Thief, the Crown, and the Pegasus, Jessica West has created a beautiful fairy tale. Jess is an awesome fantasy writer, proving that a fairy tale does not have to be gory. The Thief, the Crown, and the Pegasus is a cleverly written short story. Thank you so much, Jess!

This is a book to read again.   😀
