Sixteen-year-old Allyssa appears to be the ideal princess of Emperion—she’s beautiful, elegant, and refined. She spends her days locked in a suffocating cage, otherwise known as the royal court. But at night, Allyssa uses her secret persona—that of a vigilante—to hunt down criminals and help her people firsthand.
Unfortunately, her nightly escapades will have to wait because the citizens of Emperion may need saving from something much bigger than common criminals. War is encroaching on their country and in order to protect her people, Allyssa may have to sacrifice her heart. Forced to entertain an alliance through marriage with a handsome prince from a neighboring kingdom, she finds herself feeling even more stifled than before. To make matters worse, the prince has stuck his nosy squire, Jarvik, to watch her every move.
Jarvik is infuriating, bossy and unfortunately, the only person she can turn to when she unveils a heinous plot. Together, the unlikely pair will have to work together to stop an enemy that everyone thought was long gone, one with the power to destroy her family and the people of Emperion. Now the cage Allyssa so longed to break free from might just be the one thing she has to fight to keep intact. In order to save her kingdom, she will have to sacrifice her freedom, her heart, and maybe even her life.
Dear Jennifer Anne Davis,
I have kidnapped your review.
In exchange for the review, please write the sequel as soon as possible.
Please continue making sure Allyssa is not a whiny princess and kicks butt like nobody’s business. I would also appreciate it greatly if Allyssa and Jarvik are kept intact and alive. Injuries are acceptable. Death of either two are completely and absolutely unacceptable within any circumstances.
Failure to do the former will result in a raging reviewer complaining about a phenomenal princess turned into a spoiled princess brat. Failure to do the latter will result in a raging reviewer who will happily throw the second book out the window.
Should she be sued by her landlord, she will plead emotional insanity to which no one, NO ONE, will ever understand.
