THE BROKEN DAUGHTER
The Cursed Kingdom Book 1
BY AIMEE SHAYE
Princess Aymeri Maudlin of Treoles wakes up one morning to find her mother, Queen Ismana, dead in her private bedchambers. The doctors rule it a suicide, but Aymeri knows better: her mother has been murdered. With her suspicions, her mother’s past and most recent present start to reveal a side of the Queen Aymeri has never seen before.
In the midst of her mother’s death, Princess Aymeri has to prepare for her coronation as Queen and the imminent war she didn’t know about until the arrival of Prince Drystan of Bréīn who has informed Aymeri of an allegiance contract between Treoles and Bréīn she was never aware of.
Will Aymeri be able to handle the turmoil thrown at her?
“I am sorry to disrupt your grieving, Princess, but there is someone here to see you.”
“To see me?” Aymeri could barely believe her ears. Seriously, on a day like this? “Is this person family?”
“Well…no…but…” Sir Parzival stammered, seemingly trying to find the correct words.
“Does this person understand today is my mother’s funeral?” Anger rose in her chest. What could be so important that this person felt the need to intrude?
“Yes Princess, but…”
“But what, Ser Parzival?” Why couldn’t he just spill it out! She had neither the patience nor the time for it.
“He says it is crucial that he talks to you right this moment.”
“Does he understand the meaning of crucial? Because what is crucial for me is that I lay my mother’s body to rest and I haven’t even found her wedding dress yet.” It took all of Aymeri not to raise her voice. She knew it wasn’t Ser Parzival’s fault—he was her royal adviser after all, and as such it was his duty to alert her to those who needed to meet with her.
“Shall I tell him to wait?”
“That would be best. After I go through mother’s wardrobe I will meet with him. And please, tell him to be terse and concise. The Princess does not have time for petty matters right now.”
“Princess, I cannot say that to him.”
“Why? Is he the Emperor of Dramolux?” She placed her hands on her hips hoping her annoyance was evident on her face.
“Actually, he is the Prince of Bréîn.”
Aymeri shrugged her shoulders. “Then he can wait.”
“I am many things but normal is not one of them,” says Aimee Shaye when asked to describe herself. She is a novelist whose genres include Dark-Fantasy, Paranormal, and Romance. When asked what drives her, Aimee says, “The world around me. The people I know. The love I have gained. The pain I have endured.” Though young, Aimee has experienced many things that she believes no one should ever have to endure, and as a result of that, she has turned her pain into liquid words that fill the pages of her books, novels, novelettes, and short stories.
