Ludmila Novakova--Mila--has barely set foot outside Prague Castle in her seventeen years. But with the choice between braving the bandits and wolves of Bohemia's uneasy roads or being married off to a disgusting old baron, she's taken what she can carry and fled. 

Escape won't be easy. Even Mila has heard the rumors of a rebellion coming against the court. The peasants are hungry. The king hasn't been seen in months. Mila's father, the High Chancellor, is well known and well hated. 

But Mila can't sit behind a stone wall and let fear force her into a life of silk gowns and certain misery. Her mother's death has taught her that much. She has one ally: Marc, the son of the blacksmith. A commoner, a Protestant--and perhaps a traitor, too. But the farther she gets from the castle, the more lies she uncovers, unraveling everything she thought she knew. And the harder it is to tell friend from enemy--and wrong from right . . .

This a good book...if you get rid of the insta-love. I think that made me cry. It was a light read and action packed. They really wasn't any depth to the characters. It was an interesting but fun read....while skipping over the insta-love parts. But if you like all of those things, this is totally your book.

Ooph! If it weren't for the insta-love this might be worth picking up, but nothing gets me eye-rolling faster in a novel than just-add-plot romance.
