Even though Prince Drakan has felt in his heart since childhood that he should have been born a woman, the rest of the kingdom would never understand. The prince must marry a princess for the good of his kingdom, after all.
But when Drakan finally meets his future wife and confesses his secret and the private name he has chosen for himself (“Elial”), not only does she accept him for who he is, but she has the mages of her kingdom transform him into the body he’d always secretly longed for! The Prince Drakan becomes the Princess Elial overnight, in body as well as mind.
At first it seems that his entire life is now a dream come true… until Elial’s father discovers what has happened. Now facing her father’s wrath and with two kingdoms on the brink of war, Princess Elial will be forced to choose between her own happiness and her duty to her people – does she remain true to herself, or does she go back to living life as a man for the sake of peace?
