Prince Jonathan is not only Alanna’s liege lord, he is also her best friend—and one of the few who knows the secret of her true identity.

"I don't want to fall in love.

I just want to be a warrior maiden."

Still disguised as a boy, Alanna becomes a squire to none other than the prince of the realm. Prince Jonathan is not only Alanna's liege lord, he is also her best friend -- and one of the few who knows the secret of her true identity. And when the Prince's life is threatened by a mysterious sorcerer, it will take all of Alanna's skill, strength, and magical power to protect him -- even at the risk of revealing who she really is....

Filled with swords and sorcery, adventure and intrigue, good and evil, Alanna's second adventure continues the saga of a girl who dares to follow her dreams -- and the magical destiny that will make her a legend in her land.
