Description

First in the Chronicles of Dasnaria trilogy set in the world of The Twelve Kingdoms: "One of the best books in this fantasy saga" (All About Romance). In icy Dasnaria, rival realm to the Twelve Kingdoms, a woman's role is to give pleasure, produce heirs, and question nothing. But a plot to overthrow the emperor depends on the fate of his eldest daughter. And the treachery at its heart will change more than one carefully limited life . . . THE GILDED CAGE Princess Jenna has been raised in supreme luxury—and ignorance. Within the sweet-scented, golden confines of the palace seraglio, she's never seen the sun, or a man, or even learned her numbers. But she's been schooled enough in the paths to a woman's power. When her betrothal is announced, she's ready to begin the machinations that her mother promises will take Jenna from ornament to queen. But the man named as Jenna's husband is no innocent to be cozened or prince to charm. He's a monster in human form, and the horrors of life under his thumb are clear within moments of her wedding vows. If Jenna is to live, she must somehow break free—and for one born to a soft prison, the way to cold, hard freedom will be a dangerous path indeed . . . "Jenna's struggle to exist as a free individual is agonizingly fraught. The stakes are so high, and Jenna seems to be barely hanging on by her fingertips. I spent a lot of time reading with bated breath as scenes played out!" —Fresh Fiction
