From back of book: Teen-aged king Leander Tiennen-Hess has barely ruled a year when he and his step-sister Kitty (or Princess Kyale, as she wishes to be known) are surprised by two visitors. The first is an adventure-loving girl, Faline, who helps Leander defend his tiny kingdom from invasion by the menacing warrior kingdom Marloven Hess, using only imagination and a bit of magic.
The nice, friendly visitor turns out to be Senrid, king of Marloven Hess. But Senrid is king in name only. His uncle, the regent, holds power and Senrid must prove himself to be sufficiently strong by abducting for execution the two kids who thwarted the invasion.
The only way to save them is to enter the stronghold of the enemy, in flimsy disguise...
