Born and raised in Scotland, I'm a writer, artist and something of a philosopher too. I'm also a social activist, animal lover, music junkie, photographer, cake enthusiast and generally rather-chilled-out-guy.

The Royal Runaway is a great setup for the events to come in the author's full length novel Eladria.
The short story introduces us to the character of Eladria, a young princess living on the third moon of the fictitious planet Tahnadra, who upon hearing news of her mother's disappearance embarks on a perilous quest to find her.
The sci fi/fantasy world is fully realized with plenty of context and back story to make you feel as though you are reading about a living, breathing world.
Eladria is charming and likeable, and I definitely found myself rooting for her.
This book will give you a taste of what's to come, and it's very cool to read a prequel set a good 10 years before the events of the novel. Getting to know Eladria as a young girl will certainly increase my enjoyment of the full story!
Well worth a read, very keen now to read Eladria!
