There is a legend that in the Berkshire forest of 16th century England, young Wren rattled around in her castle, until an appointed day when things changed.
When the abandoned princess discovers a friend, some muscle, and a passion for swords, she also acquires the crucible by which she must discover a mysterious key to her grief and her quest to true freedom.
Will her strengths only serve to confound her future in the alternative reality of the kingdom to which she rides?
This young adult/new adult myth is fringed with scary angels and ghosts as Wren finds herself coming of age. Her spirit must negotiate the maze of socergy, magic, and a peasant eating dragon before the adventure leads her to light and love.
More than a romance, Wren discovers that loyalty can erupt from darkness, and a closed fist can open in goodwill.
