Purchase a copy:
Princess Rosealyn LeNoir refuses to remain the sheltered heir. Studying and training in the comforts of the castle will not assist a country at war. When additional soldiers join her father at the border, she evades her personal guard, Captain Charles, to follow. Hoping to help her father discover those responsible for the blighted fields across their nation, Rosealyn finds herself thrust into a battle which leads to an unlikely answer.
For the past decade, Charles has adhered to an agreement which allowed him to leave his past behind. As Rosealyn continues to discover what is myth and what is reality, Charles worries the truths she learns will hurt more than they may help.
Between fantastical creatures, magic, the legendary Twin Blades, and the myth of the Lost Prince, Rosealyn fears that understanding the LeNoir Gift may cost more than her family’s legacy.
Character Q&A with Princess Rosealyn and Captain Charles
1. Hi Rosealyn & Charles! Can you introduce yourselves?
Rosealyn – Welcome to my home! I’m Princess Rosealyn, sole heir to the throne of Orda’an who is, unfortunately, sheltered. At twenty-three, you’d think Father would let me outside Vandyl’s castle more often. Or travel with him. But alas, here we are. My favorite things to do include eavesdropping on Father, weapons training, reading, and avoiding wearing the dresses Mother tries to insist I wear.
Charles – I’m a captain in the Orda’anian army, one of several tasked with ensuring Princess Rosealyn remains safe as His Majesty requested. I arrived when I was 15, and have been here for ten years now. In addition to protecting Princess Rosealyn, I must adhere to the agreement I made with her father, King Phillippe.
2. Can you tell us about the Lenoir gift?
It’s odd. My family’s gift both fascinates and frightens me. The LeNoir gift allows the wielder to see snippets of the future, and creates feelings about future events. It is also only ever held by one, meaning I will receive the Gift when Father dies.
3. Rosealyn, tell us about your father! What is he like?
Father is kind and honorable. He cares about me, about Mother, about our people. Everything he does is to aid those with less. Amid all the seriousness, however, he can be as mischievous as I am. I miss the days he and General Azeiah used to play pranks on each other.
4. Lastly, what can we expect from you all during The LeNoir Legacy?
Rosealyn: I learn. A lot. And I’m sure I have more to learn.
Charles: The past cannot be changed, but how you let your past affect your future is your choice.
