Book Description

A Fantasy Novella - approximately 65 pages

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

When Rosamond and her friend Dan head out on her birthday to explore an abandoned and haunted castle, they expect 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 themselves, Rosamond must reach beyond her own violent past to find her courage, and Dan must find the way to his true self.

Their only help is a children's story come to life: an ancient sorcerer whose soul has been trapped in the walls of the castle for centuries.

Can they keep the prince alive long enough to bring him home safe?

Can they defeat the man who would be king?

*Includes a short excerpt from Danel of Black Mountain, the exciting conclusion to Rose and Dan's story, now available!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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!!

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Novella - not only for YA March 18, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't let the YA Fantasy `label' fool or deter you from this wonderful novella! Author Cate Dean does an amazing job of putting the reader right in the castle with Rose, Dan and Jaren as they traverse their harrowing ordeal. The characters are well-drawn, the plot believable for the genre, and the writing will not let you stop reading until you've reached the end. I also enjoyed the excerpt for Dean's next book and will buy a copy as soon as it's available. I highly recommend you pick up a copy and enjoy this one for yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Different...... February 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was kind of a different story. It was very hard to keep up with the story line. I guess every one can hear the spirit's voice and it can help them but it needs to join with one of them. I am not really sure what the point of any of the story was. It needed more back story and fleshing out to make it a really great story. It was a sweet story about unconditional love. It wasn't a bad book at all but it is a quick read.

More About the Author

Hi there - thanks for checking in. My name is Cate Dean, and I write romantic suspense and paranormal, with some action packed YA paranormal and fantasy thrown in.

I am a huge history buff, and with my English/Irish heritage, I have always gravitated to English history. That love has taken me across the pond on a regular basis for the last 15 years. Now I get to combine the thrill of being in a country I love with my research addiction. :)

The Love in Time series is the culmination of those trips - and my love for romantic suspense. I hope you enjoy following Elizabeth and Kane on their adventures - I have a blast writing their story, and watching them grow and change.
