A must fantasy read for the whole family…with or without children!


Ms. Schizas once again takes us on an adventure-filled, emotional roller coaster of childhood wonderment.  Her characters are captivating in both strength and hilarity. 


Alex is the Princess of Rock Kingdom.  Her parents never told her about this world she was born in, but now she’s fighting to keep it safe. 


Sarah is the best friend.  She’ll fight by Alex’s side, but is afraid Alex may want to stay here in Rock Kingdom than rather go back home…something Sarah can’t do without her. 


Butch, well he’s the steadfast, loyal, protective guardian willing to give his life to keep Alex and Sarah safe.  Oh, before I forget he’s a dog and he talks.  Okay, he talks all the time back home with his friend Pops, but not that any human could hear.  Pops, well he’s a real original.  I always knew that squirrels were, well squirrelly.  Then there’s Jinx.  Jinx is unique and the perfect companion to Pops.  You’ll have to read for yourself about these two to believe them.


I laughed out loud, screamed in frustration, and cried.


“The Rock of Realm” transports the reader to a new world that’s only protection from the evil Dread is its Queen living in our world.  However, Dread has found a way to trick young Alex into entering his world.  Will the Queen follow and risk both worlds, or will Princess Alex triumph?


Join Alex, her friends Sarah, Butch, Pops and Jinx as they battle against The Mistress of The Qulany River, Braks, underground mazes and Dread.


Ms. Schizas, please tell me we’ll get to visit Rock Kingdom again.
