Finally back home, Meiling finds that returning to her old life as the cursed princess is harder than she imagined. She’s told to rest and recover from her harrowing time in the enemy’s fortress and enjoy the week-long festival.
She can’t. Not when Shang faces losing everything—including his life—because of her. She won’t rest until he is pardoned, but that is easier said than done in a world that still believes her cursed.
It doesn’t help that with each passing day, she cannot ignore the growing feelings in her heart for Shang. It’s impossible to think when he looks at her the way he does, with so much tortured intensity.
But with Shang’s trial, Meiling’s secret magic, and Fang Zedong making it clear he hasn’t forgotten them, dreams of a future with Shang become even more unrealistic. For anyone in the empire to be safe, someone must stop Zedong’s conquest.
Can that someone be the forgotten shadow princess of Zheninghai?
Read the heartpounding climax of the Zheninghai Chronicles, full of slowburn romance, swoon-worthy heroes, breathtaking adventure, and just the right touch of emotional damage. Perfect for fans of Shari Tapscott, Sylvia Mercedes, and Kenley Davidson.
