A fun-filled fantasy quest starring an unforgettable new hero: BRONTE TEMPESTRA!

Bronte Tempestra of the Storm Kingdom is taking charge of her own destiny - she will be the first ever princess to become a knight!

But knight school isn't the fun-filled adventure Bronte is expecting - the knights don't seem interested in saving . . . anything. And when she discovers that the Lightning Steeds have gone missing, leaving the Thunder Trolls to wreak havoc across the lands, she knows it's her moment to prove just how brave a princess can be.

Bronte must face down pompous griffin lords and bare-bottomed cloud-stealing gnomes, monstrous horrorflies and spooky zombits. The future of the entire kingdom is at stake!

It's time for the princess to rescue the knights!

The first book in a new fantasy series for readers aged 7 and up, packed with illustrations. Perfect for fans of RAINBOW GREY, WITCH WARS and THE PRINCESS IN BLACK.
A fun, imaginative rollercoaster of a read.
Tradition is well and truly turned on its head in this funny, all-action romp packed with the quirkiest creatures you're ever likely to meet. And with McCaffery's imaginative illustrations bringing Bronte's exciting fantasy world to glorious life, it's a glorious gallop from start to finish.
I know this would make an excellent class read for Years 2 or 3 in particular! As well as stunning illustrations, Bronte Tempestra and the Lightning Steeds gives the literary world a brilliant new protagonist you don't want to mess with. I can't wait for more!
