'Princess Rani's marriage to a prince from Kashi is imminent, even though she has only lived thirteen rainy seasons. But the princess and her sisters are kidnapped by a rival kingdom before the marriage can take place. With no sign of rescue in sight, Rani takes matters into her own hands, going undercover as a trainee soldier in her captor's army. She must embrace her new identity and leave her high-handed ways behind her. But time is running out.

'Will Rani be able to rescue her sisters from an unwanted marriage to a dying prince?

'Will the princesses ever see their home and family again?' (Publisher's blurb)
