As a typical princess, Jenna is spoilt and wishes for adventure and action in her life. Somehow, her wish is granted during her seventeenth birthday and she is suddenly thrown into a world of brutal reality and dark curses. Alongside her childhood friend, a grumpy thief, and a magical elf, Jenna must now find a way to get her life back before the darkness takes everything away.

Marta Thinks: Click on the link. You may look at the number of chapters (54) and its status (incomplete) and the last time it was updated (4/13/13) and run away, thinking it's not worth your time. You'd be wrong, incredibly wrong. Because, despite everything that goes against it, despite it having numerous characters, and long chapters, it works. And it works incredibly well.

The story almost seems like a cliché in the beginning, with a princess, Jenna and her best friend, Eiden, and an arranged marriage on the horizon. But it's part of its magic. seredemia lets everything seem so done-before, when actually the story is complex, woven across characters and events - both belonging to the and present, so that a beautiful embroidery comes together. It tells a tale that you certainly don't want to miss; that you’d be crazy to miss out on.
