Carina was tired of waiting for a groom who wasn't interested in her. Deciding that she's had enough, Carina leaves the only home she's ever known to forge her own path. But she's not prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. A life of free choices, a talking horse, a prince, and a king of a dark kingdom challenge her at every turn. When Carina is hurt and has nowhere else to turn, she must make a choice: return home and apologize to her family and the prince she left behind or run away and pretend nothing happened after she left.
