An adventure worthy of legend, for fans of Game of Thrones and Ranger's Apprentice When fifteen-year-old #65533;thelfl#65533;d is suddenly and reluctantly betrothed to an ally of her father, the king, her world will never be the same. For as a noblewoman in the late 800s, she will be expected to be meek and unlearned--and Fl#65533;d is anything but meek and unlearned. Her marriage will bring peace to her land, but while her royal blood makes her a valuable asset, she is also a vulnerable target. And when enemies attack, Fl#65533;d must draw upon her skills and fight to lead her people to safety and prove her worth as a princess--and as a warrior.

"Tingle's graceful, tightly plotted narrative is . . . an enthralling tale. A first-rate example of historical fiction."-- Booklist
