She and her brother have a blast together until a magical prank goes way too far and her parents bring her back… to Earth! They hope that an entire week in the ordinary world will teach him that magic is a privilege… and maybe washing dishes by hand will help him realize that palace servants are to be respected.
Three years later, Amy settled into college and mainstream life. She does not remember any other house. So when a prince of the kingdom brings her home and restores her magical destiny, how will she fare?
Written by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale and illustrated by Asiah Fulmore, Amethyst: Princess of Gemworld goes on sale November 9 at DC Comics.
