The Purple Haze
Being a princess is hard.
Especially when you’re just a little OCD.
And your twin goes missing.
Sure, Princess Eloise is Future Ruler and Heir to the Western Lands and All That Really Matters. And yes, her life is structured by Protocol and full of little “habits” that help her get through the day.
But none of that matters when her twin sister disappears.
Eloise has to suck it up to try and get her back.
She sets out with her champion (a nervous, yammering chipmunk), her guard (the human incarnation of rectitude), and two horses (one an equine perfection, the other on a vow of silence). Like a kind of fantasy-world Gilligan’s Island meets Discworld, a quick little two-day jaunt turns into traipsing across realms. sniffing out a trail that is getting colder by the minute.
