Princess Meiling harbors a deadly secret.
Her people believe her lack of magic to be a curse, so she has spent her life in the background, all but shunned from court.
But she does have magic—and it’s the magic of legends.
When the secret of her magic is threatened, she is forced to flee her home into the dangerous wilderness with nothing but a begrudging warrior as protection. Handsome and taciturn Tan Shangdi isn’t happy to have his career waylaid, but he will do whatever it takes to fulfill his duty and protect Meiling with his life.
But no matter how careful Meiling is, she cannot hide her magic forever. Especially not from Shang. It’s only a matter of time before he discovers that he has grossly underestimated her, that she’s not the helpless princess he thought she was.
And when he does, he will have the power to destroy her.
For to harbor such a secret is to doom her life, and the lives of all her loved ones.

The Zheninghai Chronicles (Books 3-5)
The entire Zheninghai series was simply awesome! There was a wonderful mix of magic in a world that was similar to Japanese or Chinese ways of life. When so many fantasy books seem to follow a more conventional European-type way of life, this series was a breath of fresh air! Suitable for young adults, but an awesome read for older readers, too! I will not admit my age, but I have kids in their 20s, yet I thoroughly enjoyed these books! I highly recommend this entire series!!
