Publisher's Summary

Sixteen-year-old Allyssa appears to be the ideal princess of Emperion - she's beautiful, elegant, and refined. She spends her days locked in a suffocating cage, otherwise known as the royal court. But at night, Allyssa uses her secret persona - that of a vigilante - to hunt down criminals and help her people firsthand.

Unfortunately, her nightly escapades will have to wait because the citizens of Emperion may need saving from something much bigger than common criminals. War is encroaching on their kingdom and in order to protect her people, Allyssa may have to sacrifice her heart. Forced to entertain an alliance through marriage with a handsome prince from a neighboring kingdom, she finds herself feeling even more stifled than before. To make matters worse, the prince has stuck his nosy squire, Jarvik, to watch her every move.

Jarvik is infuriating, bossy and unfortunately, the only person she can turn to when she unveils a heinous plot. Together, the unlikely pair will have to work together to stop an enemy that everyone thought was long gone, one with the power to destroy her family and the people of Emperion. Now the cage Allyssa so longed to break free from might just be the one thing she has to fight to keep intact. In order to save her kingdom, she will have to sacrifice her freedom, her heart, and maybe even her life.

Kept me at the edge of my seat, wonderful book I can't wait to read the next in series.

I loved the characters and the story line. The twists and turns and the realism of the story. This is how all royalty should act the, I can't wait to read the next book.

Buyer Beware!

I would have loved this book except for the awful narrator. She mispronounces words and I would laugh at her butchering the word "remember". Why would you not fix these mistakes in editing or fire her for a terrible performance is beyond me. Take the time to read this book instead of listening to it.

predictable and poor performance

the story was highly predictable and very annoying. there was no subtlety, and what was about to happen was very very obvious. Father made no attempt to hide the plans she had for the story.

the narrator was awful! She had the right voice for it but her performance was terrible. all sorts of awkward pauses and she says word strangely. not as if she has any strange accent, it's British, but as if she didn't know what the word was supposed to sound like. Words like Scabbard for example. it's almost as if she didn't practice at all for this project.

all that being said I still enjoyed it. yes it was predictable but still enjoyable in the long run.
