Featuring flying horses, family drama and friendship – there’s something for everyone to enjoy!”

“One of my earliest childhood memories is standing in Toys R’ Us, holding a VHS for Princess Gwenevere & the Jewel Riders.” added Lauren Hitzhusen, senior editor of Maverick, “It was a show that I instantly fell in love with–Gwenevere’s perseverance, Fallon’s strong leadership, and Tamara’s kind heart all spoke to me as a child. I loved the talking animals, the glittering gemstones, and how fun and colorful the world was. It’s really a dream come true to be able to expand the world of the Jewel Riders and tell their stories today. Jewel Riders is unlike anything in the Maverick lineup and we are so excited to bring this story to life.

Synopsis: An updated YA take on the classic 90s animated hit, encouraging the magic of female friendship and perfect for fans of fantasy adventures! Join Gwenevere, the princess of Avalon and wielder of the Sun Stone, and her friends, Fallon and Tamara, on a quest to keep Avalon safe as enchanted Jewel Riders. While the girls remain friends, things are not as they once were. Gwenevere – once the leader of the Jewel Riders – has had to take a step back from her true passion, being a Jewel Rider and protecting Avalon from evil, in order to step into a new role as the future queen. Fallon, holder of the Moon Stone now leads the Pack–an elite group of Avalon’s protectors, a role once held by Gwen’s fiance. Tamara trains under Merlin to better harness the power of her Heart Stone, but wonders where she–and her powers–truly belong. When Merlin begins acting oddly, it’s a sign that evil Wild Magic has returned to the kingdom–and so has a foe the Jewel Riders thought they’d once vanquished. With her kingdom, friends, and magic on the line, Gwenevere must choose between the life she loves and knows as a Jewel Rider and her newfound duties. Come join our circle of friends on an enchanted, new adventure for Young Adult readers.
