Long before there was a Winter King, there was a Summer Queen—Gwendolyn of Cornwall, a fierce warrior princess who raised an army to unite a nation.

Said to be a changeling child left to the King and Queen of Cornwall, Gwendolyn is "blessed" at her cradle by three Fae gifts: a prophecy for her future, a gift of "Reflection," and a golden mane—quite literally. Every lock of her hair will turn to gold, only provided it is cut by her one true love.

But no one understands more than Gwendolyn that her blessings are truly curses. Because any man who gazes upon her will see his own heart reflected in her countenance, and depending upon his virtue, she is either the loveliest woman in all the land... or the most hideous. It's a cruel jest of the capricious Fae, for unless a man's heart is true, she is destined to be coveted for her crown, and despised for her face.

To make matters worse, Gwendolyn's aging and ailing father is desperate for an alliance with King Brutus of Loegria. "The Romans are coming," and according to the Goldenchild Prophecy, only by uniting their dragon banners can they stem the Red Tide. Offered to Brutus's ambitious son, Prince Locrinus, Gwendolyn's heart is nevertheless tempted by a mysterious, maddening half-blood Fae whom she can never wed if she is to fulfill her crib side prophecy.

Part 1 of an exciting, new fantasy trilogy.
