Wow! I am blown away. Being a novella, of a series I have never read, I am amazed at the emotion I felt reading this book. Within its 50 or so pages I felt sadness, hate, terror, anxiety, and the flutter in my stomach of romance and love. Princess Leena is a strong girl whose only wish is to be happy outside of her fathers rule, but that is really the deepest I can go as far as a plot overview. Just know that this novella is worth reading if you enjoy romance and the beginnings of a very deep plot for a series. 

I am sad to say that I did not know about this author or series before reading this novella. I will be grabbing this series as soon as I can though.
