The Broken Spell is a tongue-in-cheek, upside down, and back to front treatment of folk tales and the traditional thoughts on certain subjects. In this story, the hero isn't the obvious protagonist, nor is the beautiful princess the charming character one would expect. Magic doesn't always work right or in the expected manner. Evil comes in odd disguises. The appearance of a person, as in real life, doesn't necessarily indicate good morals, motives, or true character. When is a curse not a curse? When you don't accept it as one. As for Yoland, a quiet young blacksmith from the town of Wayler, he learns he can be whatever he wishes to be; that only his opinion of himself determines who he really is inside.
