Product Description

Meet the Defender! Super-villains. Hungry monsters. Black dragons. One royal kid to stop them all. Alfie never expected to become king so young. (Like, aged fourteen.) He definitely didn’t expect to become a legendary superhero: the Defender of the Realm. Which means fighting an ancient secret battle against mega-villains and evil monsters. All while grappling with adoring crowds, paparazzi and pesky minders. Now the terrible Black Dragon is rising. Only Alfie can stop him. Think being a king is just about wearing a crown? Wrong.

  • A royal fantasy quest written by two top screenwriters
  • King Arthur meets Young Bond meets Percy Jackson
  • By the TV writers behind Thunderbirds and Danger Mouse
  • Castle life, ancient quests and terrible danger
