Shattered by her father’s decision to deny her the throne as the first female heir of Dravidia, Princess Verena Elidena Destavi of House Drav makes the worst mistake of her life: She runs away.
Her departure, days before her wedding to the heir of the Principality of Aulden, throws her nation into war. In a desperate bid to reverse the consequences of her choice, the princess returns to planet Jorn, anxious to prove herself worthy to rule. But it is too late. The princess finds her kingdom conquered by Prince Amiel ra Aulden. Now, Verena must earn back her birthright as well as the trust of her people.
Dark forces are rising across Thyrein’s Galactic Wall, threatening the stability of the Intergalactic Alliance of Planets. A war with the indigenous Gortive population on the continent of Parthia is inevitable. The resulting chaos and destruction from her decision to flee have made the continent of Vidden vulnerable. Queen Verena must unite Dravidia and Aulden in time to defend Vidden against a Gortive offensive. Can she become the great queen her people need her to be?
"I enjoyed this twist on standard fantasy. The mash-up of sci fi and fantasy is nicely handled and I loved the fact that our heroine, Verena, made a bad choice and is having to own up to that flaw and try to redeem herself and reclaim her birthright. This has some real potential for a long-running series.
Good stuff!" Pat, Amazon Reviewer for United Vidden
