The Legend of Rah and the Muggles by N. K. Stouffer

On the far side of the earth, Aura citizens fought great wars with other nations.

The line has some conflict to it, but ultimately feels like the epitome of preamble that usually begins with something like: once upon a time... This is the beginning of an introduction that has a lot of back story and explanation about who Muggles are - and no they aren't the same Muggles made famous in the Harry Potter series. In fact, these Muggles came first, as this book was first published in the 1980's. The author doesn't think this was a coincidence and there had been a legal rambling which made this book a little famous after the fact, not a bad thing for this author regardless of where J.K. Rowling got her ideas from. N. K. Stouffer is also the author of the Larry and Lily Potter books. Hm...

Chapter 1:

Lady Catherine had barely escaped from her family's palatial estate before the enemies arrived.

Character and conflict start this children's story. As a children's story this reads nicely like a fairy tale that wastes no time introducing conflict.
