Princess Mareleau is the only daughter of The King Verdian and The Queen Helena of Sele, the only hope for the future heir of the throne. Not the same with the princess, she has not recovered from her past and not in a state to trust someone to marry them. Princess Mareleau had broken five engagements the same year and her parents were now worried.

The heart of ice melts down a bit when Mareleau meets Prince Frederick of Edan. He had been very understanding towards her and believed to never force her into the marriage. The conversations between them leads to a beautiful friendship and eventually both of them agree to engage into a relationship.

The trust of princess is broken, she calls the guards and hands her best friend Carta to them forbidding her entry in the castle forever as a necklace was found in her hands.

Why would her best friend do so?

Will Mareleau marry the prince after knowing a horrifying secret which he was hiding?

Read the story to find out the answers!

My thoughts about the prequel:

The pages to turn are very less and thus you can finish the story in about thirty minutes. The story seems just very predictable at start, but, don’t stop! There are twists just as mind bewildering awaiting you. There are no extra-ordinary stuffs written in the prequel but I totally fine with that as you do not reveal things in a prequel.

The overall character development seems pretty good to me, maybe, a little more detailing about the characters and the scenery present around the character would have twinkled charms around.

I love the character of Princess Mareleau, a strong person showing off her cold icy heart to the world but having hiding her calm side deep inside. She is care-free and says what she thinks! I mean, who would not love it!
