  Once upon a time......
  Elizabeth's story starts out as a typical Cinderella story, but it's far from that. Follow Lizzie on her journey in search of her freedom and herself as she faces love, loss, heartbreak, and all the challenges life throws her way. Will she gain her freedom? Is it possible for her to love again? Can she survive when everything seems lost? 
  Elizabeth grew up in a loving family until her mother died. After her passing, Elizabeth's father, the king, grew resentful towards her and forced her to work with the servants in the castle. She was not allowed to leave the castle grounds, to be kept a prisoner in her own home. Soon, the towns people had forgotten about Princess Elizabeth, thinking her dead. Little did they know, Elizabeth was still alive and well, now known as Lizzie. What will happen to this forgotten princess when her kingdom is under attack? Can she escape? Will she be able to keep her royalty a secret?

Interesting tirn of events..what a horrible king! I get the concept of "going down with the ship" mentality, but geeezz...going down fighting!

Even if her father is cruel I don't understand the actions of her siblings.

Just a suggestion... You should break this chapter in paragraphs to make it easier to read. I was going crosseyed trying to keep my place.

So, far things seem pretty interesting, but I think you give too much away in your prologue. It would be more interesting if you do flashbacks to create your prologue.

King, don't blame Lizzie for her mother's death. Not her fault that you have no pullout game.
