Publisher Comments:

One day Contessa was the crown princess of Costenopolie, the next, a beggar's child reared as a decoy. But her recently discovered magical powers have made her invaluable to the kingdom, especially when the new royal couple is abducted by pirates. Original.


Assigned to chaperone Queen Contessa and her husband on their honeymoon, Tess takes on pirates who abduct the royal couple for ransom-unaware that Tess's magic is the real treasure in their midst.

Princess at Sea, follows The Decoy Princess in Dawn Cook's Princess series. Tess is escorting Queen Contessa and her Misdev consort Alex on their honeymoon. With them on the journey are the rouge Duncan and Jeck, the Captain of the Misdev Royal Guard and fellow player. Needless to say, the honeymoon goes awry when Tess and the royal couple are captured by pirates. True to form, the pirates want a ransom for the roal couple. Tess, however, has gotten on their bad side by killing a few of their crew. The pirates want rid of Tess, since she is troublesome. Duncan, on the other hand, is becoming buddies with the pirates. Duncan does try to help Tess out by saving her from ravishment and probable death. After a series of misfortunes, Tess and Jeck win free of the pirates, leave Duncan and the royals behind, and race to the capital to head off the kidnappers. No, I didn't give it all away. This is a twisty, tricksey, one regardless of the predictableness in some of it. Read only if you have read the Decoy Princess, you'll be lost without it.

So far, this series seems to hold more potential for cleverness than the Truth series and the books in the Truth series are also good reads. Can't wait for more!
