I am grateful for my father, who keeps me good and sweet. I am grateful for my mother, who keeps her own heart guarded and safe. I am grateful for my adviser, who keeps me protected. I am grateful for the Path, which keeps me pure. Ever after.
Princess Aislynn has long dreamed about attending her Introduction Ball, about dancing with the handsome suitors her adviser has chosen for her, about meeting her true love and starting her happily ever after.
When the night of the ball finally arrives and Nerine Academy is awash with roses and royalty, Aislynn wants nothing more than to dance the night away, dutifully following the Path that has been laid out for her. She does not intend to stray.
But try as she might, Aislynn has never quite managed to control the magic that burns within her-magic brought on by wicked, terrible desires that threaten the Path she has vowed to take.
After all, it is wrong to want what you do not need. Isn’t it?
My Review: Aislynn is a princess. And so she is at this school, where she is pretty much to be a perfect lady and at the ball she should be meeting her future husband.
But it's not gonna go to plan. Things never really do. Aislynn just wants the other girls to stop being mean to her and do her own thing. But being a princess means living by certain rules and having to keep up a certain look.
I enjoyed the overall idea of the story. The writing was done well and I loved learning about this world. However there were some parts that lost my attention and it took a bit for me to pick it back up and actually finish it. But I'm glad I did. It ended up picking up the pace and I just enjoyed it.
