Serina’s whole life has been focused on learning the skills she will need to become one of the wives of the heir to the throne. Her sister Naomi, less pretty and always in trouble for rebelling against the strict rules girls and women must follow, is expected to become Serina’s handmaiden at the palace. Two unexpected events result in the wrong sister being picked by the heir, while the other one is banished to an isolated and violent island prison. The sisters must now use their skills in a world neither one has been trained for, in the hopes of escaping and rescuing the other.
