Summary:

Seventeen-year-old Samira is the youngest daughter of King Verlun of Algwyn. When her best friend, a lieutenant in Algwyn's army, gets caught in a border skirmish with the neighboring kingdom of Brenmor, he is captured by the enemy.

Fearing for his life, Samira begs her father, the king, to pay the ransom to free her lifelong friend. But the demands are too high, and Samira—along with a few trusted allies—set out on a journey to free their friend before it's too late.

Along the way, the princess finds her true self, discovers secrets about her family and her past, and sets in motion a plot to end a war before the world is plunged into chaos.

This was such a good start to your Novel, Summer! I loved it! The story just kinda pulls you in and it's so good! Also, I noticed that you made Samira throw knifes. I like that. Also the names were very beautiful, like Yopa said!

Wow! This is so good, Summer. I'm very excited for the next chapters. How'd you come up with these beautiful name's?! Did your brother help. (Hopefully one of you will get my joke.) Very, very good, Summer.
