What if the true makings of a princess have nothing to do with where she’s from and everything to do with who she is?
She may hate her nickname of “Warrior Princess” but Lis stakes her reputation on her ability to protect her client’s treasures no matter what she faces.
But this job is different.
When the royal family of Torrens hires her to guard the fabled Pea of Primeorder jewel it starts out like any other job. The king is kind of eccentric (and possibly delusional) and Prince Channing is strangely pleasant towards her, but otherwise everything is normal.
Until she learns about the thief.
The legendary thief Apex has sent a letter declaring his intention to steal the Pea of Primeorder. Lis knows this is either the vainest thief in the world or there is more going on then she’s been told. But a job is a job. Lis will pass this test at all costs even if she has to stuff the jewel in her mattress while she sleeps.
But eccentricities of the Torrens royal family only intensifies as Prince Channing starts asking Lis strange questions. Like…would Lis stay in Torrens after her contract is over, and if they could learn to fight together. (What kind of royal asks that?)
A Prince, a Warrior, and a Pea. The Kingdom of Torrens will never be the same.
It is not necessary to read the books in the Timeless Fairy Tales series prior to reading this story. However, if you have read that series watch for the name drops and hidden Easter eggs!
