The basic plot structure in my book, Princess of the Midnight Ball, has a lot of different plot elements, there’s rescue, pursuit, love, and a little bit of a riddle. All the princesses are under a curse and they have to go to the midnight ball, and during the whole book, all the princes and Galen are trying to save them from it, so that’s rescue. Pursuit is the King Under Stone and his sons going after the princesses to marry them. Love is Rose and Galen falling in love throughout the book, and the riddle part is Galen trying to figure out the mystery of the worn out dancing slippers and where the princesses go every night.
The conflict of this book, is man vs supernatural. Throughout the book, the princesses and Galen are trying to get out of the King Under Stones power. The King Under Stone isn’t mortal or human, he can cast spells like the one he put on the princesses bed room so that anyone trying to help them falls asleep, I don’t know exactly what he is but he’s not human. They have to go down every night to the midnight ball no matter what they try, so Galen has to help them and defeat the King Under Stone and free the princesses from his grasp.
One of my favorite parts is close the the ending, when Galen makes a plan the defeat the King Under Stone and actually acts on it. He takes a sharp silver branch, and writes the kings name on it and stabs him with it which finally kills him, but all of his power goes to his oldest evil son, so they have to run for it and Galen starts shooting the princes with his gun. When they finally make it through the gate, Galen chains it shut with a special magic chain he made which means that the remaining princes are stuck down there forever with no way out.
