Alex can't believe what he's hearing.  Leave school?  Why should he leave his boarding school?  It isn't the best place in the world but he can ride his horse whenever he wants and things are going OK.  When he returns home, things go from strange to downright weird. It seems that the country of Rovenia has overthrown the occupation and has declared itself independent.  For the first time in many years, there is to be a free, independent Rovenia.  And they have voted to restore the monarchy.  And guess what -- that means Alex's father is now King of Rovenia.  Which, or course, makes Alex the prince.  Well, to some people, this might be a great thing.  But not to Alex.  He balks at all his handlers who attempt to get him ready to take his place as royalty.  What will happen when the family finally returns to the homeland to reclaim their place?
