Princess of Shadows by A. G. Marshall (Fairy Tale Adventures Book One)
A Princess and the Pea Retelling
Evengelina Shadow-Storm has been asleep a long time – much longer than she’d planned. One hundred years after she went to sleep to protect the shadow realm, the kingdom has forgotten who she was, and how her sacrifice saved them. But the threat is returning, and she only has a few days to convince the Council of Kings to believe in magic once more.
The story grips you from the first. Why was Evangelina asleep? Was she successful? What happened to her brother, Lucas? And why was Aleric’s right to the throne questioned? Marshall draws you in with these questions, expertly weaving threads together until the full story is revealed. I loved the adventure elements of this story, how Evangelina was so focused on protecting the kingdom. The romance between her and Aleric happened because of her quest, not in spite of it.
As an added bonus, there’s a free short story prequel that introduces the world, and is a great place to start the series.
