The Defender: The Staff of the Throne
by Robert Collins
“The Defender” has been summoned to meet the King. Allan’s wife Nancy, “The Moon Spirit,” follows him to Crown’s Hold. Allan not only meets the King, but his daughter, Princess Elspeth. Elspeth, concerned about her brother, gives them a mission: find the long-lost "Staff of the Throne," so it can be used to determine if her brother should become King.
