Before the time of the great pyramids, there was a place like none other, a city of glass and metal rising from the depths of the ocean. Shrouded in mist, the island of Hy-Brasil and its capital Atlantis lay hidden from the rest of the world by its people, a race of long lived, interstellar nomads. What secrets would you keep to save your kingdom? On the Queen’s deathbed, the sonless King Rowe is force into a promise to allow his five daughters to marry for love. A promise he wished he had never made, and one he will have to break, to save the kingdom from his squabbling, incompetent son-in-laws. The youngest of five daughters, Jael, spent most of her time at her father’s side learning to run a kingdom. Believed to be the King’s favorite, Jael is shocked when he betroths her to a longtime friend of his, Prince Sarik of Hy-Brasil. Soon she will learn that world is full of secrets and one of them is her very own birth. Will the secret that bonds her to Sarik be the ultimate downfall of a kingdom?
Powell had many characters in this book as well as mystery, deception, and of course love. It begins when the Jael, a main character, became the last daughter and chance for a son that King Rowe had. In some cultures the father/family picks who the girl will marry and I hoped this was not the case for Jael. In order to save the kingdom King Rowe loved, he promised her to someone! This is the starting point for Jael to grow into the women she will eventually become. She learns many things bout herself, her family, and the kingdoms. Powell writes with such finesse that we get into the minds of each character and see the unique quirks that each character has, especially the sisters. I would say this is a great read if you like romance mixed with little fantasy love.
