The second book in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles.
Those wicked wizards are at it again. This time they are draining power from the Enchanted Forest. And that does not sit well with Mendanbar the King.
On the advice of the witch Morwen, Mendanbar decides to consult with Kazul, the King of the Dragons. He hopes to avoid meeting the dragon's princess, since he dislikes princesses and considers them silly, brainless twits.
But when he gets to Kazul's cave and meets Princess Cimorene, Mendanbar is startled to discover she is unlike any princess he has ever met. As for Cimorene, though first she mistakes the King of the Enchanted Forest for the plumber, she is delighted to find him a fascinating companion.
That is lucky indeed, for they will have to endure a lot of each other. Kazul has been captured by those horribly wizards, and Mendanbar and Cimorene will have to search for her, traveling over mountains and past man-eating giants, terrifying rock snakes, and an assortment of magic-wielders.
