“I can’t see my reflection. Not here in the window, nor in any of the mirrors throughout the castle… Sometimes I dream I am standing over myself, and it is as though I am looking down on a statue. I imagine my skin hardening to white stone that will crack and chip away over time, my eyelids never to open. The garden vines climb all around me, suffocating me until I disappear into them, never to return.”
Trapped in a cursed sleep, the only experiences Princess Eglantine has are the ones in her dreams. There she meets Prince Henry of Fallund, a neighboring kingdom on the brink of war.
Meanwhile, Prince Henry’s brother Duncan discovers a vicious beast imprisoned for murder. Captivated by her, he works to free her from both the prison bars she’s locked behind and the ones surrounding her heart and mind.
