Waking naked in the enemy camp far from the palace and her pet dragon, Lien is horrified to find she’s imprisoned by the ruthless tribe—and they know her true mission.

The Prince's Wish
After writing The Assassin's Gift, I wanted to know what really happened the day Lien's parents were killed, so I wrote The Prince's Wish. It's a short story in Prince Bao's point of view which tells the tale.
