Primrose Fernetise, a beautiful twelve-year-old audacious young girl, lived with her father and her brother, Stanley, faraway from the city. Her mother passed away one morning from a sickness. The already shaken family of three worked hard to make their both ends meet. One day, her father had a stroke, which left him paralysed which didn’t allow him to leave the bed.
But, yes, there was a cure. So, Primrose decided to go to the forest to bring back the magical herbs which could cure his father. She started her journey to the jungle. Once she reached the jungle, she met Violet, a rabbit who could talk just like her, laugh like her and think like her – just like a human does. What was even more freaking was that the rabbit could read exactly what Primrose was thinking. Not only this, she discovered there were many more animals in the woodland who were blessed with the special abilities just like Violet.
She got to know that they were seeking her. The reason why they seemed to be seeking Primrose was because they had to defeat Evelyn, the wicked sorceress, who wanted to rule the world. But, the only person who could defeat her was Primrose. They revealed her that the reason her mother dies and her father was ill was because of Evelyn’s curse. Once Primrose defeats her, the curse will break and her father will be cured and her mother will be alive once again. Primrose immediately agreed to go on to the mission. But it wasn’t that easy. They had to travel to Hellevue, the place where the witch lived. On the voyage, they had to come across many obstacles.
Will Primrose be able to help them? Will Evelyn rule the world? Will Primrose be able to save humanity? Will her father be cured? Will she get her mother back? Read this amazing story by Kiara Shankar and Vinay Shankar to know what fate has in store for Primrose.
