One year before Prince Zaaki is due to take over from his father, King Zok, as the king of Luella, he sought his father's consent to explore the kingdom beyond the palace's walls. Knowing the kingdom's history, his father worried for his safety. Still, he let him go. Luella is a beautiful land of magic and magical creatures. But Prince Zaaki soon learns that beneath the facade of beauty and peace lay sinister forces with a plan to overthrow his family's reign in the kingdom. However, the most potent threat is very close to home. Thus, what was supposed to be a fun and character-building expedition turned into a fight for his life and a race against time to save his parents and the kingdom.
Prince Zaaki and the Royal Sword of Luella is a young adult fantasy novel written by Heba Hamzeh. Like most fantasy novels, its primary theme is the age-long fight between good and evil. The story moves fast with just the right blend of action and dialogue to hold the reader's interest. Even though it's set in a fictional world rife with magic, the author found creative ways to infuse elements of earthiness into the plot. I believe the target audience—tweens and teenagers—will appreciate the author's infusion of relatable technology, such as hoverboards, computer-controlled doors, and the VS, which is basically a wearable Alexa, into the plot. In addition, the book features attractive black and white illustrations that do a great job of breaking the monotony of written text and helping the reader visualize the scenes and characters better.
The novel has many strengths. I particularly liked the role animals played in it. Some of the animals had exciting personalities, especially the flying horse Strongheart, who was just as instrumental to the story as the human characters. Another aspect of the book I enjoyed was the inspiration behind it. The author's son inspired it, and she named some characters after her children. I think it's a sweet gesture that they will appreciate as they grow older.
I have no complaints about the book. The characters were believable; their mannerisms and reactions were age-appropriate. Even though the ending hints at a sequel, the author tied up the story satisfactorily while still whetting the reader's appetite for the next book.
Overall, Heba did a great job. The book entertained me throughout. Hence, I rate it 4 out of 4 stars. It is an excellent read for young adults that love fantasy novels with a side of romance. Mature readers interested in a light read without too much intellectual investment will also enjoy the book.
A journey of self-discovery, bounded by fearlessness, love, and grief, Heba Hamzeh narrates the story of Prince Zaaki And The Momentous Battle Of The Kingdoms with skill and intrigue. At that time, the battle of the kingdoms drew near. King Zok of Luella invites King Salam and Queen Hadia of Yistyyim to discuss the security issues of the battle. King Zok seeks the assistance of Yistyyim and its army at the upcoming event. He is willing to reward the kingdom of Yistyyim for their kindness. During the preparation for the battle, circumstances begin to present themselves. One of which is the sudden reappearance of an attacker, which threatens the safety of the royal family and the people of the kingdom of Luella. Prince Zaaki Tar of Kingdom Luella juggles the pressure of winning the battle of the kingdoms, protecting the royal family, and Star, the woman he is deeply in love with. Prince Zaaki needs the help of Goddess Ella and Goddess Lulu; the immortal goddesses, and students at TransM school (Baal, Karena, Immanuel, Panacea, and Jamilietta), and so many others to help protect the kingdom from the foreseen event. Will the team save the royal family and the kingdom of Luella from harm's way? Find out. This book has numerous positive points. One such aspect is the evocative language that the author employs in this book. Fictional fantasy books are more complex to visualize than mere romance or new adult books. Heba tells the story in a way that a person with basic knowledge of the English language can understand; creating an image of the book was relatively easy. The description of the characters and creatures was detailed. The manner Heba narrates the story makes one seem like he has been to the Kingdom of Luella and been present at all of the occurrences. I love and appreciate that the book proceeds to the main course of action without delay, hence keeping the story flowing. It is remarkable how Heba Hamzeh begins the book with calmness and ends it at a turning point, leaving the readers awaiting her next book release. There weren't any negative thoughts while I read the book. I discovered minimal errors, and it did not reduce the excellent worth of the book. It was professionally edited. I rate Prince Zaaki And The Momentous Battle Of The Kingdoms 4 out of 4 stars because it was near perfect. The book played out like animation while I read through it. It was an exciting read, and I enjoyed every bit of it. I recommend this book by Heba Hamzeh to all those who enjoy reading adventurous and fantasy-based novels.
