When sullen and ill-tempered Princess Angria of Madville meets joyful and smiling Felix, a wayfarer from a faraway land, she faces an anomaly and a
decision. What is that strange curve on Felix’s face? What is that constant song on his lips? What is it that fuels his belief in the impossible?
Felix’s faith is put to the test when Angria’s father, King Grouch, offers to give his daughter to the winner of the Festival of Fights. Dreading marriage to a man she does not love, Angria protests. But how can she escape? A king’s decree is irrevocable.
Or is it?
