When she was little she wished to be a princess. Now as a teenager she just wishes she fit in. But Shanice doesn't feel like she belongs, she never has.
When her parents tell her she is the last known princess from another world, it all makes sense. A world full of magic in place of technology. One where she is more than just royalty, she is their last chance to stop the one who is bent on destroying it. Mendina.
But she can't do it alone, first she must find the other missing royals. In her quest, Shanice will be forced to choose between the course prophecy set for her, and the one that leads to the man her heart belongs to.
This story starts with the main character Shanice at school being bullied. Someone puts a food bomb in her locker the result is Shanice being covered in mustard, ketchup and pickles. Later in class she hears a voice in her head it tells her " Come home, child. Your time is near. We need you here. Please, Shanice." that ends in her leaving school. But instead of going home she goes to the stables to ride star her horse and one of her best friends. Once there Valentino, friend number two, walks in and end up riding together and race to a broken gate. She wins and gets there first. Star is unsure of the gate so Shanice gets down to look at the gate. She look to see if there is anything on the other side of the gate, but when she goes to touch it Valentino screams don't and jumps from his horse and rushes toward Shanice. He then tells her it's said to be haunted she knows he's lying, but brushes it off. The next day on her birthday her parents act strange. Making her breakfast in bed and going to pick up jewelry for her. Later in the morning the voice is back telling her "Your time has come, love. It's time to come home". A little later they are eating breakfast again when Valentino comes in and they tell her she is going home, but back to her real home. The one that her and Valentino are from. The one she had no idea about. I enjoyed this book and loved the characters. If you like fantasy and lots of adventure. A main character that goes from being bullied to kicking ass. Then you'll love this book. I give this book five stars for a great adventure.
