The kingdom of Far Shore still resents Donnelly, its neighboring land, for forming an alliance with those filthy High Clifters and then defeating them in war. Twice! They really must pay for such an insult. And what better way to prick their pride than to steal their lovely, revered princess, mutilate her a little, and then ransom her back to them for a hefty sum.
So, the king blackmails stable hand, Farrow, into accepting the mission of kidnapping Princess Nicolette and bringing her back to Far Shore to meet her gruesome fate.
With his sister’s life on the line, Farrow reluctantly accepts the quest and travels through desert and forest, only to find Nicolette eagerly awaiting his arrival with her bags already packed and good to go, spouting off insane nonsense about being his destiny and one true love.
What follows is a crazy, eclectic adventure that brings two lost souls together and helps them learn who they’re supposed to be and what they’re supposed to do in this ever-changing journey called life.
Completely entertaining Fantasy adventure
How’s this for the start of a book to pull you right into the story?... the Hero is sent to kidnap the heroine because his father plans to beat & rape her to get revenge for the defeat he suffered from her brother. The only reason the Hero agrees to this terrible errand and kidnapping is because they have his sister chained in a dungeon until he returns with the girl.
To add the first twist, when our Hero arrives at the Princess’s castle, he finds that she has packed a bag and is waiting to go willingly with him because she thinks he is planning to elope with her...
This book was awesome and entertaining, lots of action adventure and romance. The perfect story to escape into during these crazy times.
