What’s your favourite fairytale retelling?
There have been so many fantastic ones published the past few years and Disney Publishing's The Queen’s Council series are YA stories that reimagines the Disney Princesses as young rulers coming into power, aided by a mysterious force that weaves between their individual stories.
Realm of Wonders by Alexandra Monir is the latest book in the series about Jasmine having to prove that she is the rightful heir to the throne of Agrabah and is a part of Booksparks' Fall Reading Challenge line up.
Jasmine thought that she had earned her happily ever after when she and Aladdin defeated Jafar. Then her beloved father dies and, overnight, all her plans for the future change. Instead of her wedding, she's now planning a funeral and a coronation—her coronation, to become the first woman to rule Agrabah. Jasmine has always been headstrong, but for the first time in her life, she finds herself faltering.
Then from beyond the grave, her father seems to pass along a message: Someone is coming. She must find the book. Before Jasmine can figure out what that means, her claim to the throne is called into question.
Her father's old counsellors decree that the best way to determine the true ruler is a tournament; a series of tests, each one increasing in difficulty—and danger. Now, with help from the mystical Queen's Council, Jasmine must assemble her own team of advisers, win the tournament, and uncover the mystery of her father’s last message, so she can prove to her people—and herself—that she deserves to rule Agrabah.
