Tuesdays at Castle Glower are Princess Celie’s favorite days. That’s because on Tuesdays the castle adds a new room, a turret, or sometimes even an entire wing. No one ever knows what the castle will do next, and no one-other than Celie, that is-takes the time to map out the new additions.
But when King and Queen Glower are ambushed and their fate is unknown, it’s up to Celie, with her secret knowledge of the castle’s never-ending twists and turns, to protect their home and save their kingdom.

This delightful book from a fan- and bookseller-favorite kicks off a brand-new series sure to become a modern classic.

Synopsis from Goodreads.

This truly was a delightful book for all ages! The story was well-fleshed out and the characters were so endearing. It was altogether very enjoyable!
This was a good book, yet my thoughts don’t weigh too heavily on one point or another. There was nothing overwhelmingly exceptional, nor were there any glaring flaws. My thoughts will be brief.

The characters were nicely done. They were what one would call 2-dimensional, however, I found that they were endearing this way. They weren’t boring characters, but they were rather a cliche. Yet they held a nostalgic element in their characters. I can’t quite place it, but I was far from disappointed with the characters. Except for Lila; she was your classic, bossy older sister that is in nearly every sister-centered book. I was a little put-off by her.

The story was great! I was thrust into the happenings immediately after the first chapter! Plus, the book only picked up ferocity in its plot-line, till I had sped through the book itching for a satisfying outcome. The climax was fulfilling, albeit, predictable.

Triggers: an attempted assassination, mild flirting, a teeny, TINY hint towards “making out”. This last trigger would fly over any young reader’s head.

Overall, this is a wonderfully delightful, exciting, sweet, and clean fantasy read for ALL ages!

Thanks for reading my review!
