»She is the knight in shining armor.«
In a kingdom full of giants, dwarfs, gnomes, orcs, elves, and humans, there is a hero. She is fierce. Fearless. And her true identity is unknown. With trouble rising in the kingdom, she swoops in, along with her sidekick dragon, to save the day. She calls herself »The Ruby Knight«.
But little do they know. Ruby Knight is, in fact, a 10 year-old princess. Robin of Kadahlan is the King and Queen’s daughter. She lives in a tower, where she hides her best friend, a talking dragon named George. Life at the castle is full of typical princess duties, but Robin wants more.
So when destiny knocks at her window – in the form of a carrier pigeon with a »help me« message – Robin knows: This is a sign. Along with her dragon, this little princess turns her dreams into reality and becomes Ruby Knight. And thank goodness! Because a troublemaker just arrived in the kingdom, an attention-seeking wizard named Merlin, whose oddball spells seem to only cause chaos.
Each time Robin and George now receive a message from a carrier pigeon, they swoop in to battle Merlin and to stop whatever curious spell he’s come up with.
This is no princess waiting for a happy ending. Her fairy tale begins now.
