Dusk at Midnight
I placed my hand on the doorknob, jumping slightly as it swung open on its own accord. That was strange; my mother was a careful woman--she would never leave the door unlocked.
Chalking it down to the affects of her illness, I pushed open the door and stifled a gasp when a suffocating atmosphere hit me hard. I choked slightly, my hand covering my mouth as inky blackness obscured my vision.
A sliver of moonlight pierced through and that was when I saw the dark silhouette that would haunt my nightmares forever. Standing in the shadows of the canopy covering the bed the familiar all-black attire made my heart stop in my chest.
When a great tragedy brings two powerful kingdoms to war, what is a Crown Princess to do when she's on the losing side? Why, seek out the help of a secluded, fantasy kingdom, of course.
But that isn't as easy as it sounds...
Princess Astra is fighting a losing battle, both within herself, her country and her war. The ruler of this fantasy kingdom--Queen Faylinn--isn't quite making it any easier either, but when the dire need for Xealite arises Astra will have to put aside her pride to secure a chance of victory for her country.
Magic, friendship and war will throw two girls away from their normal lives and into an adventure of a lifetime.
