After helping to rescue Princess Aislynn, Elanor has finally rejoined the rebel camp she calls home. Stolen from her parents at a young age and forced into service by the Wicked Queen, Elanor now wants nothing more than to see the queen removed from power. But Elanor has secrets, mistakes she’s spent years trying to forget, and the closer the rebels get to the throne, the harder it is for Elanor to keep her past hidden away.
With fellow rebels on her side—including Princess Aislynn, Thackery, and the handsome and mysterious Matthias—it is time for Elanor to make a decision. Will she protect her secrets? Or risk everything to save the people she loves?
The thrilling companion to Elissa Sussman’s masterful and original fairy tale, Stray, that will appeal to readers of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and fans of Wicked, Into the Woods, and the Disney princess movies.
My Review: Elanor has finally made it back to the mountain. Tired and hurt, Elanor takes some time to rest up. Soon the wicked queen will be taken from power. Things are looking good, Princess Aislynn, the mysterious Matthias and a group of rebels all prepared to go to battle, though the secrets Elanor keeps may have a hard time staying hidden as they get closer.
The princess becomes more powerful. Some rebels get caught and so they need to use the tunnels to sneak into the castle to free them. By the time, it comes for them all to fight, no one expects all these twists. The queen has a son, who she cares for. And the prince just happens to be the mystery guy that has been helping the rebels. Even he wanted to see his mother off the throne.
But things get even messier, when magic is used, then to find out certain objects hold magic. The queen withers away to nothing, they lose people from their side. Everything is just crazy at the end. But once everything calmed down, things will set into a new direction that I can’t wait see where it goes.
