The Princelings of the East was originally a trilogy telling the adventures of our heroes Fred and George. Two innocents abroad, they leave the security of their isolated castle and venture out into a world of castles, tunnels, pirates and lost cities. They meet princes, innkeepers and travellers, become embroiled in shady business dealings, shipwrecks and totalitarian societies. Despite being guinea pigs (cavies) they live much like you or I would like to, and have much more fun! These are stories for capable readers of all ages; probably ten years and up will get most from them.
Jemima Pett published the first ebook in the Princelings trilogy, The Princelings of the East, in November 2011. This was followed by The Princelings and the Pirates in February 2012. The third book, The Princelings and the Lost City, was published in July 2012.
The fourth book is a prequel to the Trilogy, The Traveler in Black and White, and was launched in November 2012. Next comes The Talent Seekers, which follows the Lost City and was published in May 2013. The sixth in the series is Bravo Victor, set a few years later and published in 2014.
