Crikey, she's got a lot of books. Anyhow, this was one of those impulsive grocery store buys where I just had to have a fantasy novel to read because all the books at home were too serious. Should've saved my money, i guess.
Anyway, triplet young princesses of a lesser ruler have some magic, but it doesn't keep them from being kidnapped. Then they are dumped into an, I think, underground no-man's-land where strange beasties dwell--and possibly the lost heir to the empire, but he's kind of not saying either way and isn't looking to trustworthy. Oh, and there was an ancient race and some of their stuff is still down there.
I'm pretty sure it was the writing and not my lack of reading skills that rendered this tale disjointed, hard to follow, and lackluster. Not really worthy.
