The best-laid plans, even of princesses, can go awry…very, very awry.
Seventeen-year-old Saraid of Thekla is on her way to marry the ruler of far-off Mauburni. But she’s not sobbing into her silk-curtained litter at the thought of leaving home, because she has plans–and The Book. She’s studied this ancient treatise on the art of kingship for months to make herself the ideal queen for her adopted country.
