‘A very funny fantasy quest with an amazingly evil queen.’ RICHARD PICKARD, author of THE PECULIAR TALE OF TENTACLE BOY

‘It’s funny and clever with a strong message of friendship and family at its core. I loved it.’ CLAIRE FAYRES, author of THE VOYAGE TO MAGICAL NORTH

Robbie is heir to the evilest dynasty in the world: the Sinistevils. He can’t wait to pledge his heart to the menacing power of the family Sceptre and embark on his bloodthirsty future.

The thing is, Robbie is … well … hopelessly nice!

Life in this royal family is about to get horribly complicated …

Tender, wise and often hilarious; the perfect read for fans of Despicable Me and Descendants, with a fairytale twist!
Robbie is born to be evil, but he simply can’t help his relentless optimism and belief in the goodness of others – his story is one of forging your own path and accepting your true self
