"A reverse Sleeping Beauty tale where the princess goes on the quest to save the prince."
Princess Kaylee has never had to fight for anything. Her entire life has been arranged, even her marriage. But when Prince Devlin falls under an enchantment, she finds she is willing to do anything to save him, even if it means fighting a dragon.

Devlin's own sister, Princess Arabella, is behind the deadly plot. She wants the throne and will use any means necessary. Her perfect plan unravels, leaving Devlin caught in a
magical sleep that is slowly spreading through the kingdom of Breniera. All Arabella needs to finish her spell and claim the crown is a drop of Kaylee's blood, but obtaining the single drop is proving more difficult than expected.

To save her betrothed, Kaylee embarks on a quest to find an ancient sword and gather a drop of dragon's blood, while trying to stay out of Arabella's traps. But Arabella's traps aren't the only danger. Time is everything. For once the last inhabitant of the kingdom falls asleep, the spell will be sealed, and not even true love's kiss will break it.

Midnight Thoughts: Fanfictions

Today I'm going to be introducing a new feature on the blog, called 'Midnight Thoughts'! I've been wanting to introduce this discussion meme for quite a while now but I just haven't had the chance to sit down and write, and even when I do post on the blog, they are mainly reviews.

Midnight Thoughts is a discussion meme where I choose a topic and give my opinions on the topic. Topics are just whatever that comes to mind and this post has no schedule or whatsoever. Sometimes they might turn into rants :) Want to submit a specific topic for me to talk about? Fill out a short form here!

Back to Blogging & Important News!

Hello everyone!

School has started! (boo :( )  How has all of your summers been? It's been so many weeks since my last post that I've almost forgotten that I still have a blog to run, not to mention remembering coding to redesign the blog! I've been in Vancouver for a couple of days, then in China for the past few weeks visiting relatives and eating great dim sum...lots. However, as great as the food in China can be, I am so very glad to be back!

My flight had actually arrived to Canada on the 25th, though jet lag has been driving me crazy for the past couple of days and I just didn't have the energy to start writing posts just yet. Speaking of planes, if there is one thing that you guys have to know about me, I absolutely hate travelling by plane.There's a long list of what annoys me on airplanes (including their blankets and sitting for 17 hours) but the worst thing about air travel for me is: airplane food. Just saying airplane food makes me think of that smell all over again....
