Welcome to the Kingdom, a dazzling fantasy theme park where 'happily ever after' is not just a promise, but a rule . . .

It's a fairytale which ends in murder as the one of the 'Fantasists' goes renegade. Ana, a half-human, half-android princess, is tasked with entertaining visitors and making wishes come true but now she's on trial, after finding herself experiencing emotions and romantic feelings against all her programming.

Told through court testimony, interrogation records and fragmented flashbacks, Jess Rothenberg's The Kingdom has the futuristic appeal of Westworld and the twists and turns of a YA true-crime thriller.

'Disney on steroids . . . a surefire discussion starter about desire and power.' - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
