The Beauty Thief – Chronicles of the Twelve Realms Book 1
The Twelve Realms exist in peace where for the beautiful and kind-hearted Princess Caityn life is perfect. Even her betrothal is to the man she loves, High Prince Theiandar. She is surrounded by loving family and is protected from all harm. That is, until a masterful thief invades Caityn’s unspoiled world and steals away her very essence.
Dark and looming in the shadows lurks this thief of forgotten lore full of archaic secrets and a magic hidden in the distance of time. His purpose and power is long forgotten, but his desire is alive and strong, ready to steal the one thing which sustains his life: true beauty. Princess Caityn's beauty embodies all he has ever coveted, and before it can be tainted he plans to steal all of it.
Prince Theiandar’s love for Caityn is strong and true, but can he overcome every obstacle to save his betrothed? Can her life, beauty—her very soul—be restored? Or will she be lost, hideous, and destitute of love until her dying day?
