Description of this Book

Princess Hesina's world is teetering on calamity. She would rather sneak out of the palace through the secret tunnels her father showed her than face the responsibilities of the crown. That is, until the king is found dead, mysteriously poisoned. Hesina's court is packed with dissemblers and deceivers, eager to use the king's assassination for political gain, and it falls on Hesina to lead her people and find her father's true killer.
