"I am the fraudulent princess. Everyone knows it. I'm the one who doesn't belong here."
— Princess Jaclyn (Jax) of Venia
The Fairy Tale ...
When the crown prince of Aldforth is killed by a manticore, King Wulfric invites twelve eligible princesses to a ball where he will choose a bride for his surviving son.
The Reality ...
King Wulfric is more dangerous than any mythical monster, and when the princesses find themselves trapped in a cursed fortress far from home, they don't have the luxury of waiting for a prince to rescue them.
The Blacksmith Princess ...
Jax was never meant to be a princess. The bastard child of the queen of Venia, daughter of a blacksmith, she's determined to make a place for herself in her small village. But when Wulfric demands her attendance at his ball, she must leave behind all she has ever known to protect her family and her kingdom.
With nothing but her hammer, her wits and a talent for disruption, will Jax be able to survive court intrigue, dangerous rivals, and an angry giant king to rescue the boy she loves, save the Blessed Kingdoms from war—and figure out where she really belongs?

Perfect for fans of Naomi Novik's Spinning Silver and Jennifer Donnelly's Stepsister, this fairy-tale adjacent historical fantasy will take you on an adventure inspired by friendship and forging your place in the world.

About the Author

Rowan Mallory grew up on the northern California coast, in a world of giant, ancient trees and swirling mists, which may have subtly altered her brain to gravitate toward tales of mystery and adventure. In college, she majored in psychology to learn more about how people work—and then double-majored in literature, because there are truths about the human psyche that can only be found in stories.

Rowan has worked and lived in beautiful places in the midwest and southeast, but she’s in her happy place in the forests and the fog, writing stories about strong, smart, flawed heroines who believe the world can be a better place if they just make it so.

She and her daughter share their home with a dog and cat with massive amounts of personality who may or may not have provided inspiration for a certain cheeky little dragon.

Rowan is the author of The Twelve Dancing Princesses series, including The Blacksmith Princess.
