Before Ever After
Valaria is not your average fairytale princess. Among her many carefully honed talents are politics, diplomacy, etiquette, and assassination. The secret weapon of her father, King Zoltan, Ari has grown up quickly. Now, her father has remarried a beautiful yet chilling woman, the new Queen Rhiannon, vain and proud. On Ari's twenty-first birthday, her world is shaken to its core, and she finds herself on the run from Queen Rhiannon, who has at last revealed her evil intentions. The princess must find a way to stop the queen's plans for throwing the kingdom into darkness. The next step leads Ari and her newfound ally Micah across the kingdom to the evil lands of King Alexander in the east. Plagued with tragedy along the way, Valaria must face her biggest assassination alone.
