After Lyra-a princess incapable of speech or sound-is cast out of her kingdom of daylight by her wicked aunt, a witch saves her life, steals her memories, and raises her in an enchanted forest . . . disguised as a boy known only as Stain. Meanwhile, in Lyra's rival kingdom, the prince of thorns and night is dying, and the only way for him to break his curse is to wed the princess of daylight-for she is his true equal. As Lyra finds her way back to her identity, an imposter princess prepares to steal her betrothed prince and her crown. To win back her kingdom, save the prince, and make peace with the land of the night, Lyra must be loud enough to be heard without a voice, and strong enough to pass a series of tests-ultimately proving she's everything a traditional princess is not.

Reviews for Stain

?Howard's latest stand-alone fantasy is a sensuous reimagining set in a distinctly Gothic world; perfect for fans of the author and readers seeking darker retellings. --School Library Journal The mash-up of fairy tale themes is sure to hook genre fans. --Booklist A decadent fantasy anchored in childhood delights with vibrantly detailed writing and brilliantly theatrical subplots. --Kirkus Reviews An emotionally complex tale of fate, inner beauty, and found family that illustrates the strength of love born from friendship. --Publishers Weekly
