When Prince Charming turns out to be a lying, murdering cheat, what can a princess with only plantwise magic do? At Princess Vevina's christening, she was betrothed to Prince Fallon and received plantwise magic as a gift. To a nation of farmers, that was the best gift of all. Prince Fallon's people were merchants and he disdained a princess who preferred to be barefoot and up to her elbows in dirt. Vevina's plantwise magic seemed useless against a prince who lied and used his charm to get whatever he wanted, matter who he hurt. What can a princess do when Prince Charming isn't? Seeking justice, Vevina learned that using her enemy's tactics could only lead to disaster, and revenge was a dish best served...t cold, but by someone else.
