Published November 5th 2012 by Malachite Quills Publishing


The Kingdom of Soron is known for many things, its rolling landscape, haunting history, fiery sunsets, and its beautiful princess. Princess Madeline woke on her sixteenth birthday to realize that her future had been planned out, a life full of privilege, royalty, and boredom... a life with a husband and knight champion that she did not choose. Using her charm, strength and stubbornness, she defies the King at every turn, determined to keep her freedom on her terms.

Freedom quickly turns to disaster as she finds herself seized by a group of wandering bandits. With the kingdom in turmoil over her capture- her Knight Champion eager to prove himself, a group of dedicated suitors determined to win her hand, and a group of exiled wizards join forces in the hunt to rescue her. Follow Princess Madeline in this adventure to find freedom and love.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 unicorns - I loved it!!
Okay so this so reminds me of my nieces with the defiance though theirs is much more direct since they range from 5 to 6.  I have 3 of them and all have red hair like me (talk about trouble, but I love watching it because it is happening to my sisters).  Princess Madeline should have had red hair….lol.  This is definitely a book I will pick up to send to each of my sisters to read to the girls.  I loved it, and it was an easy read, and you couldn’t wait to see what this strong independent girl was going to do next.  I actually think she behaved better than I would have, but I’ve never been good at behaving like ‘a lady’ is supposed to just ask my mom when I was climbing trees or hanging out with boys.  I also loved all the point of views of everyone thinking someone else had it easy compared to them.  The grass is green syndrome was in total effect. 

I think if you remember what it is like to be a head strong girl, you will love this story and want to share it with any important girls in your life.

The Kingdom of Soron bustled with activity as preparations for the Fall Festival began. Lively merchants, hardworking farmers, and musicians eagerly awaited this event of harvest and joy. This year’s festival was even more important, as they celebrated Princess Madeline’s betrothal to her knight champion, Daniel. 

Celebration quickly turns to disaster as Prince Paulsen returns with curious demands, either Princess Madeline will be his, or no ones. Rejection turns to obsession and battle is declared.

In a tense struggle to decide her future, Princess Madeline must choose where to put her trust… in the king’s tried and true plan, the wizard’s cryptic messages and maps, or her own sense of bravery. Follow Princess Madeline on this adventure as she battles evil in an attempt to create a future of love and magic.
