This stunning new novel from A.G. Howard immediately captured my heart. The land of darkness, Nerezeth, and a land of light, Eldoria, were once one. Sundered long ago, the two kingdoms are now at war once more. Princess Lyra of the daylight kingdom and Prince Vesper of the night kingdom each have blood of the other's kingdom in their veins. When Princess Lyra is cast out from her kingdom of light and has her memories stolen from her, she must work with Vesper to reclaim her place in her kingdom. Howard's masterful fairy-tale storytelling and signature dark twists make Stain an utterly enchanting read.
