A tale of two princesses—one with magic, one with none—who dare seek love in a world where real choice can never be theirs.
Ailsbet loves nothing more than music; tall and red-haired, she’s impatient with the artifice and ceremony of her father’s court.
Marissa adores the world of her island home and feels she has much to offer when she finally inherits the throne from her wise, good-tempered father.
The trouble is that neither princess has the power—or the magic—to rule alone, and if the kingdoms can be united, which princess will end up ruling the joint land?
For both, the only goal would seem to be a strategic marriage to a man who can bring his own brand of power to the throne. But will either girl be able to marry for love? And can either of these two princesses, rivals though they have never met, afford to let the other live?
