The heroine is an unloved and neglected princess who discovers herself, her sexuality and emotional strength in a series of misadventures. This is a coming-of-age drama in which a young woman rebels against her overbearing and immortal DaemonKing father, and learns to cope with the rejection and hatred of the subjugated people and their displaced prince. She undergoes transformation to womanhood through a circuitous and exciting journey that takes her away from the castle of her birth, and returns her as the warring factions meet in a final, decisive, and unexpected climax.
The story is a dark fantasy with full blooded characters, driving emotions, and strong motivations. It is not a bodice ripper, though a bodice does get ripped. It includes a riot of action including greed, torture, rape, and selfless nobility. It is an easy read with a driving storyline which can be eaten at a single bite, a holiday read to drive the cares of the present into the future.
