"With music you can tell the truth about human experience." In this romantic fantasy set in the same world as Crown Duel, Flian is an ordinary princess who would rather be left with her music but gets abducted not once, not twice - three times. What is a civilized princess to do? Especially when she can't tell which prince is the hero and which the villain!

It's like the narrator is whispering to you the story. When action arises, there is no excitement but stays dull and unaffected. Disappointing!
Book is a really fun read but narration isn't the best. :(A fan of Smith but not of this narration.
I really liked the story at first, then got a bit confused but back into it. However, the narrator drove me crazy. her whisper narration voice was hard to hear at times. the main character's voice was okay but most of the others were grating. Jewel's voice was particularly annoying, as were Alejandra's and Gillion's. I have to wonder how much more I would have liked the story without those grating voices.
the narrator seemed to think she was performing an ASMR session the whole time. she whispered THE WHOLE TIME! And gave one character an impossible to understand lisp. Why? I love the story, and I love the author. Sherwood Smith is my favorite, unapologetic, and perhaps unintentional, feminist fantasy author!
