I received this book for free from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


Princess Adriana is about to leave the Kingdom of Ayrden on the Journey of her sixteenth year.
If she is ever to ascend to the throne, Adriana must go—alone and unarmed—into the unknown. She’s been trained and gifted for the journey, just like all the royals who preceded her—even the ones who never returned.
Adriana leaves Ayrden on her brother’s black stallion the day after her birthday celebration, with bravery in her heart and hopes for a quick return. When three paths emerge, one of grass, one of gold, and one of gemstones, she chooses the pragmatic path of grass. Although it seems safe, and the landscape familiar, she soon finds she will have to overcome nearly impossible challenges. Ultimately, an unexpected friendship not only changes Adriana, but the very kingdom she someday hopes to rule. The question is, will the friendship turn into everlasting love?

Princess Adriana is about to take the journey of her 16th year. All the royals in the family take the journey if they someday want to rule the kingdom of Ayrden. She leaves on her journey and finds lands and family secrets a long the way. She helps save a kingdom and finds herself but will she make it back to her kingdom?

In ” an Oyster Shell – It was a lovely YA fantasy.

The Pearls – The fantasy had great imagination and lovely details. It felt as if I was reading in technicolor. I liked the descriptions of the different lands Adriana found herself in.

The reader sees the main character go through a lot of personal growth. She is quite naive? when she starts out on the journey to the point I want to shake her. She grows out of it through the story and it was a delight to experience.

The plot was really good it was a real adventure with dragons and all. I liked that the author had a female character going through the coming of age adventure. It kind of broke the mold on coming of age fantasies. I liked that the princess had her own heroic tale.
