Detailed book overview
Thirty young women. A handsome prince. A battle to the death.
Water is scarce. Deserts have taken over the land. Nuclear war has devastated humanity. Humans live in walled super cities to keep out the irradiated. The land that was formerly known as America is divided into kingdoms ruled by royal elites.
Born into the lowest Echelon of the Kingdom of Phangloria, sixteen-year-old Zea Calico faces a life of hunger, thirst, and toil. The only way out of this drudgery is revolution, and Zea is desperate to help the cause.
When the palace calls for candidates to compete to marry Prince Kevon, Zea joins the Princess Trials to search the palace for weaknesses.
The trials should be a fairytale of sumptuous meals, ballgowns, and romance, but one misplaced word causes Zea to attract the Prince’s attention. When Zea uncovers the man beneath Prince Kevon’s public façade, she is at risk of falling in love and losing sight of her mission.
But the televised beauty pageant turns deadly, and Zea must fight for survival.
Zea’s adventure continues in the page-turning sequel to The Princess Trials.
The stakes are higher and the competition more brutal in round two of the Princess Trials. Zea’s relationship with Prince Kevon intensifies, and she must choose between the prince and the rebel who holds her heart.
When her enemies uncover a secret that drives a rift between Zea and Prince Kevon, she’s not only battling for survival but facing execution.
She wanted to destroy the monarchy. Now she must battle to save her prince.
Zea resumes her role as a spy but this time against the people she once pledged her loyalty—the Red Runners. Rescuing Prince Kevon won’t be easy, especially when suspicion plagues Zea's every step. She also doesn’t know how the prince will react to learning her terrible truth.
Lies are uncovered, hearts broken…Can Zea and Prince Kevon overcome their differences, save Phangloria and find love?
A hunted princess. A violent gameshow. A nation that wants her dead.
When Princess Briar moved to the Amstraad Republic, she didn't expect it would be a battle for survival. She certainly did not expect to star in a violent game show where contestants compete for her death.
Her only chance of leaving the purge alive is a scarred young man entered into the games as an underdog.
But will he betray her to win the grand prize?
Princess Briar’s adventure in the Amstraad Republic continues. This time, she’s entering the battle for survival with her eyes open.
All who betrayed her will pay with blood—starting with the men behind the deadly gameshow.
Armed with just her popularity and a devoted companion, she must first overthrow its president and break free of her treacherous husband.
But with the Republic on the verge of invasion, she must choose between saving the country and revenge.
