Crown princess Aurelia is a survivor. She survived attempted assassination. She survived the king's rejection. She survived her mother's abandonment. And now, in exile, she must survive her kingdom-from hostile crowds to raw frontier to desert sands. But even as unknown assailants track Aurelia and expedition guide Robert, she knows what her greatest risk is: falling love...
Anne Osterlund is the author of Aurelia and Academy 7, and is also a sixth-grade public school teacher and drama coach. She lives in Ione, Oregon.
