Cupids on the loose!

Cupid darts in the beehives means charmed honey.

Eating the charmed candy from most of the Seven Kingdoms makes people charming.

Each kingdom throws candy from their float in the Rose Monday parade.

But the Blackfly Queen’s new Consternation Hearts make people rude.

The eleven-year-old Saffron twins—Princess Saffy and Prince Magellan—are determined to find out who is making these magical black hearts.

Is the Blackfly Queen up to her old tricks?

The twins have to stop her before the Rose Monday parade or no one in the Seven Kingdoms will Beeeeeee Friends!
