Publisher's Summary

Petrella, the Gillian Princess fairy tale interweaves themes similar to The Little Mermaid, Cinderella, Tangled, Sleeping Beauty, and Noah's Ark. It's a story of hope, bravery, and triumph. It is meant to be enjoyed by all listeners young at heart, but especially aimed at those children who enjoy middle grade fiction. You can listen to it with your child, or they can listen to it themselves.
Can a courageous young princess escape a world consumed by power, to follow her heart in search of true love?
The year is 2041 AD. Yemell, the new world, is divided by land and sea and governed by kings; separated into kingdoms with strict laws in place to help maintain order. There are humans on land and a newly evolved ocean-bound species, the Gillians.
Princess Petrella is a gentle Gillian female. An admirer of all sea creatures, she is enchanted by romance and longs to fall deeply in love with that special Gillian male. Instead, she becomes smitten with a Human named Finerd. Relations with humans are forbidden on Yemell. Her father, Hermas, the Gillian king of the Anglon Kingdom, has ruled his kingdom with an iron fist for over 30 years.
Alas, Anglon is in dire straits. Rebels are overthrowing neighboring kingdoms and the king's health is quickly failing. Hermas has no living male heir. To remain powerful, King Hermas must ensure that his only child, Princess Petrella, marries a wealthier Gillian prince from another kingdom. But, the young princess can't tame her feelings, and neither can Finerd.
Will Petrella pursue this dangerous affair, defying her father's mandate, and put their kingdom at risk?
