Logline

The Hunt for Winter: An abducted child, a wizard thought long-dead and a plot to resurrect an evil menace. Queen Irene's son, Winter, is missing. His wizard teacher, Seever, has tried to find the boy using his โ€œfar-away vision,โ€ but it is blocked when he looks to the north. Since only a powerful enchantment can block his sight, Seever concludes an unknown wizard must have taken the young prince. But aside from Winter and his two teachers, Seever and Kaza, there are no other wizards left alive. Or are there? The Hunt for Winter is an action filled story as Queen Irene and her best friends travel north in search of the Crown Prince. Once they find him and return to the Kingdom of Cabbage, Queen Irene unwittingly brings along the means to unleash an evil force that could destroy them all. Friends Nan, Irene, and Kay find themselves on a journey they did not expect, facing a foe they could not have imagined. The stakes are high, the magic is dangerous, and they are fighting for what they care about most: their families, and each other.
