What happens when a fairy tale princess falls in love with a witch instead of the handsome prince she's destined to marry?
Princess Mary Melancholy has no idea how to be happy. Self-conscious and socially awkward, all she really wants is to believe in something the way everyone else does. Her royal troubles abound since she's engaged to be married as part of a peace treaty between two warring kings.
Mary meets a witch named Salem who is cantankerous, bawdy and banned from the land because of her Evil intentions. But when Salem accidentally kisses the princess and they both feel a spark of attraction, a forbidden romance begins that threatens the future of two kingdoms. Will Mary choose love and scandalize the family as The Evil Princess or accept responsibility and protect her people?
This mix of literature, genre, political satire and fanfiction is a surreal experience. Too funny to be serious, too disturbing to be a comedy, it's a roller coaster ride into a caricatured world that mirrors our own.
