Book Description

Book 1 of an exciting YA fantasy series.

A missing prince. A haunted castle. A dangerous man bent on ruling the kingdom - whatever the cost.

When Rosamond convinces her friend Dan to explore a haunted castle, she expects them to find only a ghost or two. Instead they discover the missing prince, and stumble into the middle of a violent, desperate bid for the throne.

In order to save the injured Prince Jaren, and the boy she has loved since they first met, Rosamond must reach beyond her own violent past to find her courage.

And by choosing the path of courage, she may end up losing her heart.

I loved this novella! The characters were well developed, the story cohesive and well paced. The very worst thing I can say about this is that it ended! I really wanted to read more, but then, all of the books I've read by Cate are that way...doesn't matter how long they are, I always want more!!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW another great hit! September 19, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What a lovely love story. Then wait we have danger and mystery. The book even throws in the supernatural. What more could you ask for? As usual Cate Dean throws in every element you need to draw in almost any reader. She has a way of blending all of the elements together along with well developed characters to make a book that is impossible to forget. As always, she leaves you wanting to read more. I have read almost every book she has written; I enjoy her work that much. I have never read one of her books that left me saying "Really I read all of that for nothing. I will never get that time back." I always say "NEXT". She is an amazing writer who just gets better with time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining and fast paced. June 27, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
For her birthday Rosamond wants to visit a haunted castle and see if the legends she read about in books are true. Is there really a sorcerer trapped within its walls? Rose and Dan get way more than they bargained for and quickly realize they need to fight for their lives as well as that of their prince and put their trust in talking walls if they hope to escape alive.

This is a very fast paced adventure full of magic, compassion and trust. It was very well written and extremely descriptive. Cate Dean makes the world come to life and lets you really "see" everything that is happening as its happening. There is some switching of characters POV so you really get the big picture of how dire their situation. I think this would have made an excellent novel with some more background about Haneh and how he came to be trapped inside the castle's walls, possibly a flashback or two of Rose's before she came to be a lady in waiting for the Queen, and of course more background on Arthur and why he kidnapped Prince Jaren.

One thing that really bothered me while reading this; the Queen is never given an actual name. She is always referred to as "milady", which I found extremely annoying towards the end. Despite this small nuance, I really enjoyed reading this novella, it kept me entertained throughout and I did not want to put it down till I was done. I was happily surprised by the ending, as I thought things were going to turn out differently, but for all the torture and fear that dominate the first ¾'s of the story it has a very happily-ever-after type of ending.

More About the Author

Cate Dean has been writing since she could hold a pen in her hand and put more than two words together on paper.

She grew up losing herself in the wilds of fantasy worlds, and has had some of her own adventures while tromping through the UK, and a few other parts of the world.

A lover of all things supernatural, she infuses that love into her stories, giving them a unique edge.

When she's not writing, she loves cooking, scaring herself silly in the local cemeteries, and reading pretty much anything she can get her hands on.

There - I got the official biography out of the way. I love to write, and yes, I have been doing it most of my life. I've made up stories in my head for as long as I can remember, and I am thrilled to be able to write them down and share them with you.

I love writing different types of stories, and jump from fantasy, to paranormal, and over to romance. So many genres, so little time...
