About the book:
The Dragon King Seeks His Princess--Who Dares to Stop Him?
Princess Una of Parumvir has come of age and will soon marry. She dreams of a charming prince, but when her first suitor arrives, he's not what she'd hoped. Prince Aethelbald of mysterious Farthestshore has travelled a great distance to prove his love--and also to bring hushed warnings of danger. A dragon is rumored to be on the hunt and blazing a path of terror.
Una, smitten instead with a more dashing prince, refuses Aethelbald's offer--and ignores his cautions with dire consequences. Soon the Dragon King himself is in Parumvir and Una, in giving her heart away unwisely, finds herself in his sights. Only those courageous enough to risk everything have a hope of fighting off this advancing evil.
Heartless is a beautiful allegory about our choices and how they affect us, and those around us. It is also a touching story about Jesus’ redeeming love for each of us. This is definitely a book unto itself. I’ve never read anything quite like it in the fantasy genre or any other for that matter. Very original, and unique! Anne’s writing style is great, with lots of richness to it that will draw you into the story. I loved this book and I would recommend it to all ages!
