When the murder of Prince Bastien's bride-to-be on their wedding day raises suspicion, Bastien is determined to leave the kingdom to seek revenge. But Sandy, his manservant, isn't keen on adventures and would rather stay home reading. However, he has no choice when he and the prince are kidnapped by a mysterious woman and her gang of bandits. Along the way, the prince and his servant encounter a masked thief who claims to know how to unlock a treasure trove of great power, and a fearless, Spirit-wielding woman who's looking to escape the mundanities of her village life. Poor Sandy. All he ever wanted was to live quietly with his nose in his books.
Jasmine was born in Toledo, Ohio on 5 July, 1992. She was almost born on the 4th of July, but life isn't always fair. As young as she can remember, she began writing using whatever materials she could find -- sometimes pencils, sometimes crayons, sometimes notebook paper, and sometimes she's been known to write on construction paper and bound the pages with hair barrettes. She received her BA in 2013 from The University of Toledo with a major in creative writing and a minor in Japanese. In 2015, she earned her MA in literature from the The University of Toledo as well. Her humorous fantasy short, "Save Now?," won The Mill Magazine's Spring 2014 fiction contest. "The Comet in the Sky," an early excerpt from her upcoming space fantasy, The Cosmic Adventures of Sophie Zetyld, won second place in The Toledo Writers Workshop's 2015 "Find Your Inner Superhero" short story contest. She enjoys ballroom dancing, ballet, video games (especially Soul Calibur, Super Smash Bros., Legend of Zelda, and Splatoon), working out, reading, and, of course, writing. She also has unhealthy obsessions with Chipotle, sushi, oreos, Nutella, and pizza.
