For years, six power-hungry ministers have held sway over Katoren, the kingdom without a king. When 17-year-old Stach has a shot at the throne, the ministers give him a series of impossible and dangerous assignments. Will Stach accomplish them and become the new king? The critical journalist Kim follows in his wake during this spectacular mission. Using modern applications, Jan Terlouw’s classic youth book has been converted into a contemporary story.
