A Necklace of Fallen Stars
by Beth Hilgartner
Unconventional, story-telling Princess Kaela flees home to escape the marriage arranged by her father. She meets up with the minstrel Kippen, and together, they make their way toward a distant country—a journey that becomes perilous when her father sends an unscrupulous sorcerer after her. Kaela's tales, told along the way, are strung together by the adventure and romance of the larger story.
