The novel of the BkyB and Hallmark co-venture 'The 10th Kingdom' is a contemporary drama set in a fantasy world where magic and fairy tale characters come to life. This is an Alice in Wonderland for grown-ups and children alike, a witty and satirical reflection of contemporary society told as an epic tale of good versus evil.
Follow the thrilling adventures of Virginia and Tony, a father and daughter from New York, who unwittingly find themselves in a parallel universe known as The Nine Kingdoms. Virginia and Tony join forces with a schizophrenic man-wolf, and Prince, a handsome golden retriever formally known as Prince Wendell, grandson of Snow White until his wicked stepmother turned him into a dog. The unlikely heroes then embark on an epic quest to save Prince from the evil Queen and restore him to the throne.
“I've always wanted to say this. Love of my life, let down your lustrous locks.”Wolf
“Happy ever after didn't last as long as we'd hoped.”Prince Wendell
“For seven men, she gave her life. For one good man, she was his wife. Beneath the ice by Snow White Falls, there lies the fairest of them all.”Virginia
“I mean I still have this uncontrollable urge to just go up to people and say "My mother left me when I was seven!" As if that would explain everything. And I miss her. And I hate her! And I miss her... I was on a train and it crashed or something, and no one came and rescued me!”Virginia
“He was on his own, and truth be told, he did better that way.”Wolf
“Wolf had no idea who had come up with the idea of having all the books in the world in one place, but it was fabulous.”
“Obedience is not a virtue. I wanted to please everyone but myself, and I had to lose everything to learn that lesson.”Snow White
“Let the light go out," Snow White said."'Embrace the darkness.”
“She sounded distracted again. She raised the torch to her lips and blew it out. The darkness was complete and immense. Tony had never wanted to see darkness like that again. "What have you done? We haven't got any matches left." "Be quiet," Virgina said. "Listen.”
“What I seek is down there," Virginia said. "What I seek?" Tony said. "What are you talking like that for? You're from New York.”
