Teenage author Kluver makes her debut with this series first set in the fictional kingdom of Hytanica. Readers with empathize with Princess Alera who is struggling beneath the weight of her parents' royal expectations and her own desire to explore a world much broader than the one she has been offered. Kluver has brought to life a wide cast of characters each rich with detail. Fans of young adult, historical fiction and fantasy will all be anxious for the next novel in this brilliant world. (This book was previously released by an independent press.)

Fifteen years ago during the war between Hytanica and Cokyri, 49 infant boys were stolen from Hytanica, but only 48 bodies were ever recovered and the fighting stopped without warning. Now, just before Hytanica Princess Alera's 17th birthday, the date when she must marry a man of her father's choosing and assume the duties of ruling the kingdom, the final missing boy returns to Hytanica. Although the royal family does not trust Narian, Alera finds a kindred spirit in this young man who challenges everything she believes. But will she put aside her royal destiny or can she find a way to convince her father that Narian is to be trusted?

This is one of the best books ever, it's easily reading, funny, interesting,... you just can't stop reading it. I finished it in two days, I couldn't stop. My grandfather was mad at me, because I was all day reading.
