Princess Sun has finally come of age. Growing up in the shadow of her mother, Eirene, has been no easy task. The legendary queen-marshal did what everyone thought impossible: expel the invaders and build Chaonia into a magnificent republic, one to be respected--and feared. But the cutthroat ambassador corps and conniving noble houses have never ceased to scheme--and they have plans that need Sun to be removed as heir, or better yet, dead. To survive, the princess must rely on her wits and companions: her biggest rival, her secret lover, and a dangerous prisoner of war.Take the brilliance and cunning courage of Princess Leia--add in a dazzling futuristic setting where pop culture and propaganda are one and the same--and hold on tight...
