Promised as a prize to any hero who can slay the dragon, Princess Sativa flees the palace in search of the prince she was betrothed to as a child. But there are many miles between her and the boy who has become a king.
Can a lone princess cross the sea and convince the king she's the princess of his dreams?

    Appease is an interesting retelling of the Princess and the Pea fairy tale. Our heroine is indeed sensitive enough to be uncomfortable when forced to sleep on a mattress with hidden pea straw (lots of sneezing), but strong enough to get to her prince despite confrontations with a really sick pirate and a very large pig. The prince, our hero, is steadfast in his oath to marry Princess Sativa and make her his queen, even when she is missing and rumored to victim to a dragon. This is a familiar tale with some new villains and a few interesting twists and surprises. An enjoyable read.
  • Wow!

    I found this tale to be truly captivating. Thus author brought the princess to life quickly and I thoroughly enjoyed that the princess was not portrayed as picture perfect. A promise was made while she was just six years old, and the trials the princess endures trying to keep that promise had me glued to the pages!!! I think this just became my favorite from this series! Well done!
