Excerpt from the Lost Spear:
Once long, long ago in Africa when fairies were not so shy, there lived a beautiful, black-eyed princess called Lala. When Princess Lala decided she wanted a house of her own and a mate, she told her father, the king. He did not want his daughter to choose a husband for herself. He wanted richest and most powerful man in the kingdom to marry his daughter and rule her and the people by force, as he always had.
So he called for a contest to see which man might throw the assegi, a long spear, the farthest. Four young men came to try. Three were sons of rich and powerful families, and one was a poor herdsman called Zandelli, who had the kindest brown eyes. Right away, Princess Lala liked Zandelli the best.
