Product Description

Nineteen-year-old orphan Elaina has a lot going for her. She’s beautiful. She’s creative—crafting gourmet dairy products in a factory she built. She’s also a brilliant student, finding higher dimensional physics quite simple, really. 

But she’s alone much of the day. She has no family and only two friends: her magnificent black horse, and her private tutor, Alessa.

Everything changes the day Elaina rescues the handsome Prince Jaimin of Arra. Pulled into his turbulent world, she becomes the secret girlfriend of a future king, and discovers true friendship and love. 

When a bitter evil threatens to destroy her, the prince, her new friends, and the rest of the kingdom, Elaina finds a remarkable power within herself. Along with this power, she discovers who she truly is, the incredible truth about her parents, and how she came to live on the farm. 

She also learns that only she can save everything she loves. 

Follow Elaina, Prince Jaimin, and the socialite genius Nastasha, as they unravel clues from their past to save their kingdom.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 5 STAR RECOMMENDED BOOK!!! 17 November 2016

I was absolutely captivated from the very first page of this book! RJ Francis has a unique ability to draw the reader into the story with such vivid descriptions that you feel like you are there watching the scenes unfold. She made a make-believe world seem very real! The plot was interesting and engaging and had me reading late into the night as I didn't want to put it down. The characters were well developed and I could relate to them because they were absolutely believable. I loved the relationship between Jaimin and Elaina and I really felt for Natasha. I would definitely recommend this book for all lovers of fantasy novels and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series!

This book for enjoyable reading; It is engaging and intriguing when the principals are interacting as the story unfolds. The story is well thought out and written. I recommend it for the reader who enjoys a bit of fantasy and adventure. I bought three hard copies and I also have it on most of my Kindles.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Well-Crafted Tale 1 March 2017
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
One of the categories for this book seems to be Young Adult, but it works for adult readers who want an escape. It's a well-crafted tale, and the characters are interesting and different in each of their ways to make them believable. There is magic involved, and it works well in the narrative. The story goes along at a good clip all the way through. I like that the teenagers, who are the focus of the book, are intelligent people in their own right, with talents and minds of their own (and jobs, like I had). If I was a young adult (12-16) reading this book, I would not be insulted by the writing, I would likely fall in love with these characters and feel sad at the end like I used to when I was that age and reached the end of a good book. I'm pushing forty now and don't fall in love the way I used to, but with this novel, I never felt like I was reading a YA book, and that's how it should be.

I was going to give this four stars because I liked it (I didn't love it, I liked it), but the fifth star is because it didn't insult my intelligence as an adult, and if there was a teenager in my life, I would recommend it whole-heartedly. The author's style is graceful enough that the mystery of who the characters are is revealed throughout the book. You're on a journey with them, instead of being bludgeoned with exposition and history, and it worked really well for me. Yes, there are some predictable things in the book, particularly if you've read a ton of books like I have, but what matters is that it's still enjoyable.

As a side note, Natasha is awesome. If I was a teenager--oh, who am I kidding, even as an adult I completely associate with Natasha. She's my favorite. I also like Elaina, but mostly because she knows how to make artisan cheeses. Also, Nightmare and Tyrant are great names for horses.
