ONE PAGE SYNOPSIS:
After a wartime plague kills the queen of Amgovar and disfigures her daughter, the king sends the scarred heir, PRINCESS FEYANA, to a secluded castle to keep her safe until the war ends. When Feyana helps save the life of a gravely injured volkarei witch, DJUSIREI, the grateful patient foretells that Feyana will end the war herself by marrying the prince of Cathys, Amgovar’s enemy nation. The king forbids Feyana to leave the castle, but she escapes over the wall to find the prince.
The sheltered princess struggles to blend in and adapt to the outside world. She escapes a band of pirates only to fall into the cavern prison of an infamous monster. To her surprise, the prisoner turns out to be FENGRAY, a handsome former prince who transforms into a dangerous monster once a year. Feyana takes him with her to visit Djusirei, who she hopes can lift his curse. Djusirei can undo the curse if someone first kills the human boy who forced her to cast it, but she can’t reveal his name.
When Fengray and Feyana leave Djusirei’s woods, PRINCE CLOGEN finds them, proposes to Feyana, and returns Fengray to prison. Feyana wants to love the prince, but his flashes of cruelty confuse and dismay her. The night before her wedding, she discovers that Clogen planned to have her kidnaped if she didn’t accept his proposal. Outraged, Feyana tries to call off the wedding. Clogen then beats her and tortures one of her friends with magic, threatening to do the same to Fengray unless she marries him. The princess realizes that Clogen is the boy who cursed Fengray, but she agrees to go through with the wedding to protect her friends.
The next morning, a transformed Fengray attempts to sacrifice himself to allow Feyana to escape, but she lures him away from the guards and uses the amulet to change him back to human. She and her friends then defeat Clogen, ridding Fengray of his curse. Feyana and Fengray then marry, uniting their countries and ending the war.
TWO PAGE SYNOPSIS
After a wartime plague kills the queen of Amgovar and disfigures her daughter, the king sends the scarred heir, PRINCESS FEYANA, to a secluded castle to keep her safe. He promises to release her when the war ends, but ten years later, peace still hasn’t come.
When a gravely injured volkarei witch materializes in the castle garden seeking help, Princess Feyana helps nurse her back to health. The grateful volkarei, DJUSIREI, reveals that Feyana is destined to leave the castle to marry the prince of Cathys, Amgovar’s enemy nation. Such a marriage would not only end the war but free the princess from her father’s control for good. The king forbids Feyana to leave the castle, but, with the help of a magic mirror, she escapes over the wall to find the prince.
The sheltered princess struggles to blend in and adapt to the outside world. After streetwise rogue ADEMNET rescues her from a crowd of knife-wielding thugs, Feyana hires him as her bodyguard and guide. As they sail toward Cathys, a band of pirates overtake them, throwing Ademnet overboard and taking Feyana captive.
Feyana outwits the pirate captain and escapes, but the pirates’ pursuit drives her into the cavern prison of an infamous monster. To her surprise, the prisoner turns out to be FENGRAY, a handsome young man suffering from a volkarei curse: one day a year, he transforms into a monster and tries to kill whatever person he loves most. Before that day arrives, however, Ademnet finds the cave and frees the princess and Fengray both.
Feyana, touched by Fengray’s story, takes him with her to visit Djusirei, who she hopes can lift the curse. Djusirei explains that a human boy tortured her into casting the curse, then threatened to destroy her people if she ever undid it or revealed his name. A magic amulet belonging to Feyana can temporarily prevent Fengray from transforming, but the only way to break the curse is to kill the mysterious boy.
When they leave Djusirei’s woods, Feyana’s prince finds them. PRINCE CLOGEN allows the princess to keep Ademnet as a servant, but forces Fengray to return to his cave on pain of execution. Feyana wants to love the prince, but his flashes of cruelty confuse and dismay her. One night, she looks for Fengray in her magic mirror and discovers Clogen lied to her–Fengray isn’t in his cave, but awaiting execution. When she confronts the prince, he reveals that Fengray is his brother and chose death over a lifetime of loneliness in the cave. Feyana is heartbroken, but after visiting Fengray in his cell, she accepts his decision.
The night before the wedding, Ademnet confesses to Feyana that he didn’t meet her by accident--Clogen hired him to kidnap and torture her in order to force her into marrying the prince. Clogen denies it and tries to have Ademnet arrested, but Feyana believes Ademnet and refuses to marry the prince. Furious, Clogen beats Feyana and tortures Ademnet with magic, threatening to do the same to the rest Feyana’s friends. The princess realizes that Clogen is the boy who cursed Fengray, but she agrees to marry him to save Ademnet.
The next morning, Feyana’s friends interrupt her wedding to rescue her, using the transformed Fengray as a distraction. Feyana realizes that Fengray loves her and that he, too, is a prince of Cathys. Refusing to leave him to die, she lures him away from the guards and uses the amulet to change him back to human. Before they can escape, however, Clogen arrives to kill Fengray and get the princess back. She and her friends defeat the prince, freeing Fengray from his curse forever. Feyana and Fengray then marry, uniting their countries and ending the war.
Ugh. You got stuck writing a synopsis. Help is on the way.
