Aganstan is a city of magical sorcery. Its king is the highest and strongest when it comes to power. His soldiers and guards are almost as strong, but not quite, and his people are of the lesser for they have little to no power at all.

The city itself used to be flourishing with warm magic and good people, but when the this king took rule, everything changed. Aganstan became a dark, morbid place, its people living lives of hardship while those who carry high powers lived prosperous lives.

Kara defies the kingdom that rules her, but most importantly she despises the one who is control of it all. He who makes the laws, forces his people into poverty and misfortune, and he who overlooks his own evil flaws. Kara despises the king of Aganstan.

Every year for the last six years, the king has tried to find a queen that meets his standards. He signals this time of the year by ringing the largest of bells a final time at dusk, leaving his people in dread and fear.

It is on the night of his seventh year of searching when the largest bell rings again, signaling the one time of the year that young women are gathered. Kara is of age now, and she finds herself conflicted and at loss of hope as she is pulled from the arms of her mother. She and the other young women are pushed, like cattle, into the great halls of Aganstan, to where Kara meets a world of not only magic, but fear, ambition, courage, and most importantly; love.

I love 'limiting laws instead of limited ones.' That's very clever, bravo.

Hah! I just noticed that you have a picture of a generic European city on the cover.  Wow! That is not what i pictured.  I'll be sure to adjust my imagination accordingly :)
