Princess Adriana is about to leave the Kingdom of Ayrden on the Journey of her sixteenth year.
If she is ever to ascend to the throne, Adriana must go--alone and unarmed--into the unknown. She's been trained and gifted for the Journey, just like all the royals who preceded her--even the ones who never returned.
Adriana leaves Ayrden on Sultan, the black stallion gifted to her by her brother just the day before at her birthday celebration. With bravery in her heart and hopes for a quick return, she soon encounters three paths: one of grass, one of gold, and one of gemstones. She chooses the pragmatic path of grass. Although it seems safe, and the landscape familiar, she quickly finds that she will have to overcome nearly impossible challenges. Ultimately, an unexpected friendship changes not only Adriana, but the very kingdom she someday hopes to rule. The question is, will the friendship turn into everlasting love?
