Blogger Book Fair Day One: Let's Get This Party Started!

Hello lovely readers! I am so excited to once again be apart of the Blogger Book Fair. Today, we have a very special interview with Princess Madeline, the main character of Kirstin Pulioff's books.


Character Interview – Princess Madeline

Tell us a little about yourself. 
How fun!  I’m a bit surprised you haven’t heard of me.  I am the princess of Soron, the daughter to King Theodore and Queen Eleanor, and twin sister to Prince Braden.  It is going to be my sixteenth birthday next week, and I am looking forward to all the fun festivities planned.

What is your favorite childhood memory? 
There are so many.  My favorites would be exploring the castle with my best friend Sophia.  Between lessons, we would race up and down the corridors, getting lost, finding secret passages, and playing games. 

When was the first time you fell in love? 
Oh… well, I am still waiting.  I know my father has plans of his own, but I am still waiting to fall in love.  I know, somewhere, there is someone for me.

What is your opinion on love at first sight?
I believe in it, whole heartedly.  I believe in all of it… the love, the romance, the courting, and the happily ever after.

What is the one thing you wish you could change about yourself? 
If you asked my father or brother this, they would have an answer or two for you.  This is tough.  I like to think that I am a normal sixteen year old, with the perks of being a princess.  If I had to choose something, maybe, I could be a little less stubborn.

Who is the one person, living or dead, you most admire? 
That is a tough one.  I should say my father, he is the king afterall… but I will say my mother.  She died when I was a baby, and I wish I had known more about her.  They tell me stories, about how smart, beautiful, and brave she was… how I am a lot like her.  I just wish I knew more.


Quick Fire Questions:

Coke or Pepsi?  What are those wonderful things?  Our apothecary makes a wonderful collection of different teas, but nothing with those names.  I prefer the sweet teas, and water.

Salty or Sweet?  Sweet

Book or Movie?  I am not sure what a movie is, but I do love to read the ancient legends from the library.  Most of the scrolls are filled with lessons and history, but there is a small section with the ancient legends and stories which I love to read.

Favorite Color?  Pink, any and all shades.

Favorite Vacation Spot?  I love walking through the Great Forest.  I have not travelled far beyond, but one day I will.

Cats or Dogs?  Neither… after my accident on the horse, my father does not allow us to have any personal pets.




The Escape of Princess Madeline:
The Kingdom of Soron is known for many things, its rolling landscape, haunting history, fiery sunsets, and its beautiful princess.  Princess Madeline woke on her sixteenth birthday to realize that her future had been planned out, a life full of privilege, royalty, and boredom... a life with a husband and knight champion that she did not choose.  Using her charm, strength and stubbornness, she defies the King at every turn, determined to keep her freedom on her terms.

Freedom quickly turns to disaster as she finds herself seized by a group of wandering bandits.   With the kingdom in turmoil over her capture- her Knight Champion eager to prove himself, a group of dedicated suitors determined to win her hand, and a group of exiled wizards join forces in the hunt to rescue her.  Follow Princess Madeline in this adventure to find freedom and love.




The Battle for Princess Madeline:
The Kingdom of Soron bustled with activity as preparations for the Fall Festival began.  Lively merchants, hardworking farmers, and musicians eagerly awaited this event of harvest and joy.  This year’s festival was even more important, as they celebrated Princess Madeline’s betrothal to her Knight Champion, Daniel.  

Celebration quickly turns to disaster as Prince Paulsen returns with curious demands, either Princess Madeline will be his, or no ones.  Rejection turns to obsession and battle is declared.

In a tense struggle to decide her future, Princess Madeline must choose where to put her trust… in the king’s tried and true plan, the wizard’s cryptic messages and maps, or her own sense of bravery. Follow Princess Madeline as she battles evil in an attempt to create a future of love and magic.
