Long ago in a kingdom far away, lived a fair king and his queen. For many years they longed for a child. Finally, the gods smiled upon them and they were blessed with a daughter whom they called Aurelia. She was the sunshine of their lives, until an evil fairy placed a curse upon her, damning her to sleep eternally until she should receive true love's first kiss. Forever to dream. But there is a power in dreams. Some might even call it magic...
Aurelia learned from a young age that there was something special about her and that many who professed to be her friends only sought to steal or extinguish that power. With the help of a handsome prince and a mysterious mage named Rook, she's going to fight for her life and her kingdom... even if she has to do it from the dream realm.
The first 18 years of Prince Edmond's life have always been about duty. A duty to his mother to honor her wishes, a duty to his father to carry on his legacy of power and fairness, and a duty to his kingdom to release them from the plague that had now terrified them for three generations. Aurelia is the first person Edmond has ever felt he could choose for himself. She could be the key to delivering his kingdom from their ill fate, but first, he'll have to earn her trust.
Rook has a secret. He's not actually a simple mage and his chance meeting with Aurelia is not at all coincidental. He's been sent by his fairy guardian to ensure that her evil plan goes off without a hitch. There's only one problem, he underestimated the effect Aurelia would have on his heart. Can he do his duty and win his freedom from the fairy's clutches or will he be swayed by the goodness of her mortal enemy?
These heroes might not be angels, but you know what they say...it's always better to trust the devil you know...
Looking for a typical hero tale? Keep looking. These twelve tales explore the grittier side of what it means to make life's hardest choices, and let your reputation pay the price. From back-alleys and ancient cities to graveyards and castle walls, these trouble-makers are out for themselves...or are they?
