Quest: Book 1 of the the Sylvalla Chronicles by F Fraderghast
A.J. Ponder, author
Sylvalla escapes Avondale castle, and the life of a princess, in search of the adventure she’s always wanted. Once found, adventure bites back. Fortunately Sylvalla is not alone – Unfortunately, her new-found companions are less than heroic. Jonathan would rather make money. Dirk would rather live a long and happy life. And at 150, Old Capro would rather stop gallivanting about and harangue unsuspecting wizard students about his glory days over a nice cup of tea. When Sylvalla and Dirk meet King Phetero, any hope of a quiet uneventful adventure go out the window, and suddenly they're not just looking for an adventure, but running away from an army...as well as all the ne'er do wells who've set out Princess hunting.
