Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Melanie Dickerson comes a fresh reimagining of the classic Mulan tale.

“When it comes to happily-ever-afters, Melanie Dickerson is the undisputed queen of fairy-tale romance, and all I can say is - long live the queen!” (Julie Lessman, award-winning author)

She knew a woman was expected to marry, cook, and have children, not go to war. Can she manage to stay alive, save her mother, and keep the handsome son of a duke from discovering her secret?

When Mulan decides to take her father’s place in battle against the besieging Teutonic Knights, she realizes she has been preparing for this moment her whole life - and that her life, and her mother’s, depends on her success. As the adopted daughter of poor parents, she has little power in the world. If she can’t prove herself on the battlefield, she could face death - or, perhaps worse, marriage to the village butcher.

In her disguise as a young man, Mulan meets Wolfgang, the German duke’s son who is determined to save his people even if it means fighting against his own brother. Wolfgang is exasperated by the young soldier who seems to be one step away from disaster at all times - or showing Wolfgang up in embarrassing ways.

From rivals to reluctant friends, Mulan and Wolfgang begin to share secrets with one another. But war is an uncertain time, and dreams can die as quickly as they are born. When Mulan receives word of danger back home, she must make the ultimate choice. Could she be the son her bitter father never had? Or would she become the strong young woman she has been created to be?

This fresh reimagining of the classic tale takes us to 15th-century Lithuania, where both love and war challenge the strongest of hearts.

Awesome storyline!

The author Melanie Dickinson delivered once again!! The storyline was amazing and true to the Mulan story. The strength and weaknesses of the characters were so real and believable. I truly enjoyed the story and can’t wait for the next installment in the series.

Challanging through some parts

This book was way to close to the movie (which is based loosely on real events) and it had mentioned an Aladdin and Rupunzel? and the love scenes were just a bit painful to listen too.

The reader was very good though! And there were unique things to the story

Loved it!

I always enjoy books by Melanie Dickerson. The only bad thing about them is that when I get a new one for vacation or travel, I can't stop listening to it and finish it before my trip!
