If only she could fight ...

"A true dream is when the events I see in my sleep have, or will happen. It's a talent that runs in my family. I was thirteen when I had my first true dream."
In the hidden Kingdom of the Rose, Dana wishes she wasn't a princess. She's always being told how to behave, what to wear, and she's never allowed beyond the castle gates. This collier's cart seems the perfect escape. Only she didn't realize she'd become so dirty, or so lost. Fortunately, this boy, Will, has a sense of direction. And next to the forbidding stranger, N'tombe, he seems reassuringly normal.
Will's Aunt says the Kingdom of the Rose is the most fortunate of lands. But Will hates the place. His uncle and aunt are horrible, and he misses his parents. Besides, although he has a talent for fighting, he's really only a baker. So how could he ever become the friend of a princess?
But at the heart of the Kingdom lies a deadly secret; a secret others would kill to possess. Can Will and Dana escape their destinies? Or will the Kingdom be destroyed?Welcome to the award-winning world of A Necklace of Souls, where bravery is not always measured by strength and magic is real, if you have the courage to dream.
