Daughters of the King

By Maggie Ray All Rights Reserved ©

Adventure / Romance


For years, my mother and I had stolen, conned, and lied through our teeth to survive. It was easy to do, when you were a Daughter of the King. That's what they called them. The women like my mother. They were all Daughters, protected by the king through a law. The same law that forced them to marry and have children-the same law we fought to escape. During the day, I'd watch my mother snake and seduce her way into men's hearts under the guise of a false widow. In the dead of night, we'd take all the money we could stuff into our pockets and run, while news of the war chased us. So far, we'd been able to stay one step ahead of them, but only if we kept moving.

Author's Note

I feel like I need to clarify a few things before we begin, if you don't mind, just for the sake of feedback.

So here it goes...

First of all, I should warn you that this book has a somewhat shocking ending. Some of the people who have read the book have kindly suggested that *maybe* I shouldn’t have *done that* while others said they thought it was perfect. So I guess you're just going to have to find out for yourself... and then let me know what you think. (Seriously. Let me know.)

The second thing I’d like to talk about is similarities to other books. Specifically, the one thing I’d like to address is my use of the phrase “little lightning girl.” I am aware of another YA book [Red Queen] that uses the same nickname for their heroine, and for this reason, I tried pretty hard to use something--anything--different. I considering changing the way I phrased it, or omitting it completely, but no matter how hard I tried I kept coming back to it. It just happened so organically and fit so naturally within my story that I couldn’t stand to remove it. Please forgive. The idea still came to me on my own, it just so happens that it has been used before as well.

The third thing I’d like to bring to your attention is this: there is a *love story.* If you don’t like some romance, you probably won’t like this book. Sorry about that.

Finally, I must thank you for reading. It means a lot.

I am struggling artist. I am starving writer. Hear me roar. And also hear me begging for feedback because this authoring thing is hard and I have a love/hate relationship with all of my books so please help me decide if I should burn all the copies okthanksbye.

That is all xo
