The king and queen are dead, murdered by one who will stop at nothing to rule. But the young princess―Rosemund―has survived, spirited deep into the forest by her parents' most trusted advisor.
There, she finds refuge in a small cottage and a new life, one in which she must play a role that will ensure her survival. Soldiers are combing the countryside, searching for the lost princess, and they will not rest until she is found―and executed. Rosemund's strength grows as she trains for battle and endures the hardships and dangers of peasant life.
When chance brings Maxwell, a young man from the nearby village, into her life, Rose finds in him an ally and a friend. As her eighteenth birthday approaches, the time has come for Rose to reclaim her birthright, and in a court controlled by a vengeful new ruler, she must play a deadly game of politics in order to seize the throne that is rightfully hers.
