Publisher's Summary

Princess Oona Talomir enjoys the little things that come with her station: a handmaiden, her lavish bedchamber, and scores of fancy dresses - the duty to win a decades-long war, not so much. 

Oh, did I mention assassins? 

Seers foretold the conflict would end by her hand. From the moment she drew her first breath, the neighboring kingdom has been trying to kill her so she could not grow powerful enough to destroy them. Fearing for his daughter’s life, the king has kept her confined to the castle grounds for most of her 16 years. With the tide of war turning against them, the burden of her crown becomes too much to bear, yet one thing lifts her spirits amid the gloom. 

Her servant girl, Kitlyn. 

Alas, in a kingdom obsessed with the god of purity, she is terrified to confess her forbidden love. When her father makes a demand she cannot abide - marry a prince to forge a military alliance - Oona panics. He is handsome and honorable, but he’s not Kitlyn. Unable to admit why she cannot obey, Oona does the only thing she can think of, and runs away. 

Alone and unprepared in the wilderness, she prays the gods will let Kitlyn find her - before the assassins do.

Far, far away too much pining not enough plot

a flighty princess and a serving girl treated like crap...and that goes on for the first 8 chapters...perhaps longer but I couldn't care anymore to finish.
