In Kate Forsyth’s The Starkin Crown the following passage appears early on:
The girl gazed at him in surprise. She was dressed in a blue velvet mantle edged with white fur, which matched the voluptuous muff in which her hands were buried. Her eyes were an extraordinary colour, blue and translucent as aquamarines.

The author has described the book as:
A fantasy adventure story for children, set far, far away and long, long ago, in a fairytale world filled with valiant heroes, wicked villains, terrifying monsters and extraordinary magical creatures. I wanted to write a book just like the ones which had so enchanted me as a child – a book filled with adventure, mystery, romance, and magic. It tells the story of Prince Peregrine, heir to the throne, and his desperate search for the long-lost Spear of the Storm King which he hopes will help him rescue his parents and win back his father’s throne. I very much hope the children who read it will be fashioning themselves magical spears out of sticks and cloaks out of old curtains and playing games inspired by it, just like my sister and my brother and I used to play Narnia.
