Description: Is Maelyn a real princess? Or a royal mistake? Maelyn was not born a princess. The king found her as a child, the lone survivor of a poor village slaughtered by the Red Fever. Suddenly she became a princess of Runa Realm, the first of nine orphans adopted by the king. By her eighteenth year, Maelyn rules over Runa and a family of nine sisters. But some call the princesses frauds and imposters, a handful of urchins raised into royalty. Even Uncle Jarrod, the High King of Grunwold, seems determined to prove that Maelyn no longer deserves to be a princess. With a family losing faith in her, and a kingdom growing dangerously hostile, even Maelyn begins to wonder if she is truly a real princess. And if her riches will turn to rags once again….

I have been into princess, and short stories of late. I have been devouring books on my Kindle that can be read in a couple hours. This story has been one of my favorite finds.

The story is so creative. The plot and the style were unique and charming. Anita has so much imagination and talent that I cannot wait to read her next book. If you are looking for old plots or typical stories, this is not the book for you.

Maelyn is an avid reader, as well as the princess that keeps all the sisters together. I instantly loved her as I am also a book lover, and the oldest of a lot of sisters. The only scary thing in this book comes from a description of one of the stories she reads. I thought it added a fun touch to the book. In fact, I really want to find Marlyn’s library, as it sounds so wonderful.

This book, though not strictly Christian, has good morals and is very clean. I think there might have been one very brief/not very passionate kiss, but that is really as far as the romance goes. It really didn’t play into the story that much.

I highly recommend this story for princess lovers and for those looking for something creative and fresh.
