Cordelia Gallowglass has the planet Gramarye at her feet. Her father is High Warlock, her mother's the powerful witch in the kingdom - and she's inherited awesome talents from both of them. On top of that, Prince Alain, heir apparent to the throne, has come asking for her hand. What more could a young woman - witch or not - want?
The wild young lady isn't sure she's ready to settle down. Cordelia decides she can take her time deciding whether to accept the Prince's offer of marriage... until she finds out she has enemies who oppose the union, and intend to ensure she never makes it to the altar - ever.
About the author
Christopher Stasheff spent his early childhood in Mount Vernon, New York, but spent the rest of his formative years in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He has always had difficulty distinguishing fantasy from reality and has tried to compensate by teaching college. When teaching proved too real, he gave it up in favor of writing full time. He tends to pre-script his life, but can't understand why other people never get their lines right. This causes a fair amount of misunderstanding with his wife and four children. He writes novels because it's the only way he can be the director, the designer, and all the actors too.
Christopher Stasheff is a teacher, thespian, techie, and author of science fiction & fantasy novels. One of the pioneers of "science fantasy," his career spans four decades, 44 novels (including translations into Czech, German, Italian, Russian, and Japanese), 29 short stories, and seven anthologies. His novels are famous for their humor (and bad puns), exploration of comparative political systems, and philosophical undertones.
