In Kizerain, preparations are underway for Yula, a once in a lifetime Royal festivity. Everyone is excited, except Anwyll and Pedr.
Prince Anwyll had always dreaded winter, but this year, he’s turning twenty-five, and for the first time since his birth, the nation will be simultaneously celebrating three momentous events—his birthday, his ascension to the throne, and the identity of his chosen consort.
Pedr Gardner is a talented botanist whose days are spent experimenting to create new varieties of plants and designing gardens. As a recipient of a much sought after royal invitation, he needs to present the king with a unique gift. Unfortunately, he’s coming up blank.
When a handsome man walks into Pedr’s garden, they strike up a conversation that soon evolves into friendship and finally love. As Yula draws nearer, Anwyll has to find a way to make Pedr his.
Review: A magical story about a prince, Anwyll, who is soon to become king, who finds his consort among the commoners. Pedr is a gardener from generations of the beginning when the people fled their home world from a tyrannical reign.
Anwyll was so determined to to keep Pedr despite what tradition says. I loved how thee two interacted and talked to one another. Pedr was extremely knowledgeable about all things regarding plants. I loved his gift for the king and the tale that is told to how it came about years before.
The celebration was magical and felt like it was a fairytale come to life.
