On Mars, in the distant future, the princess Haydn's arranged marriage cannot save her beloved Republic. Her arch-enemy, the warrior-woman Frane, seeks to make herself Queen while Haydn--the legitimate heir-- must flee for her life.
A reluctant symbol for those who would restore the monarchy, Haydn is too young and unprepared to assume the throne - but determined to become a great Queen. With a bounty on her head, she will make a perilous journey to the realization that - in order to save her world - she must sacrifice all that she holds dear.

"Fabulous...an enthralling Martian science fiction tale."(Midwest Book Review)
"Fans of fantasy and SF alike will appreciate this genre-bending space adventure." (Romantic Tiimes)

How has this gotten overlooked!
Cats riding horses ruined it for me.
It had good characters but stereotyped. Most irritating was the heavy pro-Islamic bias.The idea that cats would be riding horses was hard to bear and I struggled with it so much I couldn't really appreciate the rest of the tale. This was a feminin-centric tale with the queen the only one with brains - oh how original. I was very disappointed in the overall story because it hinted and rambled and got boringly predictable almost immediately. I can see why it was a reduced price book.
Make the creatures not be cats. Remove the Islamic influence. Add some punch and action to the story. Everything progressed so slowly I couldn't finish it.
