Overview

A modern supernatural fairytale about finding one's voice, falling in love, duty, and family

Nila Mikou has her future figured out. Soon, she might even get up enough nerve to reveal her secret crush. When she's attacked by creatures out of a twisted fairytale, Nila isn't so sure. Brought to a mythical land where sunlight smells of lemon-verbena and snow falls up from the ground, Nila learns she is more than just a waitress in her grandmother's diner. Much more. But the news isn't all good. Nila is betrothed to the crown prince, the brother of her lone friend in this strange place. But she isn't ready to be anyone's princess, and boys from her new home might just be worse than the ones in her high school. As her feelings for her friend grow from friendship to more, Nila is torn between an obligation to the crown and her own desires. If she follows her heart, everything and everyone she loves could be swallowed up in darkness forever. If she meets her obligations and fulfills her destiny, she may still end up alone.
