A steampunk princess is torn between love and duty in this prequel to SyFy.com's wildly popular webisodes. Riese has never been happy as a princess; she'd much rather be hunting or fighting than sitting through another lesson on court etiquette. When she meets Micah, a wandering artist with a mysterious past, she pretends to be a peasant--it's a chance to be just a normal girl with a normal boy for a while. But with war decimating her once-proud nation and the sinister clockwork Sect infiltrating her mother's court, Riese's moments with Micah are the only islands of sanity left in a world gone mad. As her kingdom falls and the Sect grows ever stronger, will Riese remain true to her duty as a princess...or risk everything on a boy she barely knows? SyFy's enormously popular Riese webisodes come to literary life in this prequel rife with steampunk technology and medieval mysticism.
