When the heroic princess Amira rescues the kind-hearted princess Sadie from her tower prison, neither expects to find a true friend in the bargain. Yet as they adventure across the kingdom, they discover that they bring out the very best in the other person. They’ll need to join forces and use all the know-how, kindness, and bravery they have in order to defeat their greatest foe yet: a jealous sorceress, who wants to get rid of Sadie once and for all.
Join Sadie and Amira, two very different princesses with very different strengths, on their journey to figure out what “happily ever after” really means--and how they can find it with each other.
"It’s super cute, super queer, and feminist as all get out. It begins with Princess Amira rescuing Princess Sadie from her tower, and it (spoiler alert) ends in a wedding — as your prototypical love stories are wont to do — but not before the two princesses find personal fulfillment, one as a hero and the other a queen."
