The Golden Hourglass – Ben Mariner

On a cube planet embroiled in magic, monsters, adventure, and sticky buns, a sinister plot unfolds that will join unlikely friends on a journey where the flow of time is variable and youth is at stake.

Cubonia’s most famous treasure hunter, Broderick Porter, has just been hired to steal a necklace from Queen Annelise’s youngest daughter, Alexandra. For one so skilled, it should be an easy job. But the princess has different plans. When Broderick shows up looking for the necklace, Alexandra makes him an offer: she will give up the necklace if he trains her to fulfill her dreams of hunting monsters. When the duo delivers the necklace to the dastardly Witch of the Wastes, Alexandra is taken prisoner by the Witch and Broderick finds himself in the royal prison. Now Broderick must rescue the princess and set things right before he finds his head in a guillotine.
