This action-packed fairy tale adventure opens with a bang! a young girl, daughter of dragons, wanders into an enchanted forest where she finds a witch's cabin, an imprisoned young man, and, unfortunately, a witch. The girl and Remington escape and journey to Pennyroyal Academy - Remington to train to become a knight and battle dragons, the girl to become a princess and battle witches. The nameless girl is called Cadet 11 and eventually Evie. The academy insists upon courage, compassion, kindness, and discipline and has a Fairy Drillsergeant, a twenty-second born young man who desires to be a princess, and the snobby bullies present in most schools. Cameo appearances, or references, are made by and to famous princesses of fairy tale lore. The dragon family, although a bit unusual, is comforting and credible in this beguiling story.
