A cursed prince. A vain beauty.
Glory is the seventh daughter of Balthazar, High King of the Twelve Kingdoms. Glory hopes that she, of all her sisters, can escape the fate of a loveless marriage. But on the night she plans to elope with the royal falconer, her world comes crashing down. Her father announces Glory’s betrothal to Eoghan of the Blood Realm—a prince no one has ever seen.
The prince is said to be a recluse, cursed and deformed by the gods for the sins of his power-hungry father. Yet when Glory is trapped in Blackthorn Keep she discovers that not everything is what she expected. An insulting gryphon, a persistent ghost, and a secret plan to usurp the prince keep Glory reeling.
Can she overcome her vanity to learn that what you want isn’t necessarily what you need—and save the cursed prince?
