The book follows the exploits of Prince Donald, a bit of a naive dolt who has read too many adventure stories and believes he can be the hero, just like in the books he has read. But being the third son of the King he's neither use nor ornament. So off he goes, to discover the world and gain 'life experience' under the guidance of a wonderful curmudgeon of ranger, Kwestor. They are soon joined by a food obsessed sidekick-cum-bodyguard named Muce. The three wander the land chasing a conspiracy theory about the threat of a mysterious giant statue (the Warden of the title), with Donald convinced he is destined to somehow intervene and save the day.
As the story unfolds, Donald's experience grows and he eventually discovers the truth about the 'Warden'. His character actually learns and develops through the story, under the auspices of Kwestor, and it is rather touching to see the young prince 'grow up'.
The tale is interwoven by the occasional telling of other characters, and my only minor gripe is that there isn't enough of this. In fact by the end I'm left wondering what happens next with Grandpa Nash and Trixie - but perhaps that's the point. After all there is a sequel to read, The Warden War, and I'm already chomping at the bit to get my teeth stuck into that so the author must be doing something right!
This is a well written and produced book, the humour is gentle but satisfying and rich in satire.Read more ›
