A silence to keep and a wicked queen to defeat.
    
    An exiled princess returns to her kingdom, bent on slaying the immortal sorceress, the Queen in the Glass Mountain. By her side is the Caster, guide and protector. Perils await them on their quest, and will test not only their strength but their hearts as well.
    
    Yet how will such thirst for vengeance serve the Princess, if not to lead to her own ruin?
    
    Follow the story of the silent Princess, from the fairy tales "Seven Ravens" and "Six Swans", retold as one of grief and hatred, of lost dreams, and above all, of how love can emerge from even the darkest of places.

A glass fortress doesn't seem very solid, hopefully it won't shatter, also since the entire structure is glass that means that the bathrooms are too, so people could see you peeing. Maybe I'm over thinking things

I enjoy how this story has certain familiar fairy tale elements--the seventh child, the vow of silence--I guess I'm just assuming it's a vow. Looking forward to where the story goes from here!
