|Plot Summary of The Prince|
Berkley, Nov 2004
King Richard of Valinor commits treachery by attacking Venya. Richard has the ruling monarch and his wife killed, but Sir Ewan and a few other leaders manage to rescue seven year old Prince Florien.
Eighteen years later, Princess Rose of Valinor escapes from her Uncle Richard. She seeks Florien as the only person who might keep her safe since she believes he would never sell her to his enemy her uncle. Rose meets Florien who rejects her contention that she is his enemy's niece, but takes her on his ship, the Quest.
Rose convinces Florien that she is who she claims to be because of her knowledge of the atrocities perpetrated on his people. He still reels from the time Richard crushed his Fheara tribesmen. Florien wonders if by marrying Rose he can regain his kingdom.
