When Connor died, Rya found she could no longer trust anyone. As such, she clung to his spirit that remained behind and relied on him to guide her every step. She does what she can to survive, orphaned and all but alone on the streets, until she quite literally runs into three paladins who will change her life forever. Rya doesn't remember anything from her childhood-nor does she particularly want to-but the paladins explain to her that not only does she have magical powers, she is also the heir to the Aythorin throne; a princess. And she is the only thing that will keep the Aythori kingdom from falling into another civil war. As she reluctantly journeys with the paladins from Sarrorccia to Aythori, Rya is forced to relive her past in order to keep her companions alive, and she slowly begins to accept the great responsibility they have placed on her, believing she knows what is expected of her and who her enemies are. But she soon discovers that power breeds resentment, and the corruption within her new-found kingdom runs far deeper than anyone knows.
Eiryn (pronounced like "Erin," but spelled in a far cooler way) has been telling stories since she could talk and writing them down since she could hold a pencil. Once upon a time at age 16 she actually published a book, but due to unforeseen circumstances was never able to continue, and ended up taking it down. Several years, two moves, three tattoos, and a gazillion scrapped plots later, she has been successful in rewriting The Lost Princess, and she hopes you will enjoy reading it as much as she enjoyed writing it. She currently lives in Georgia with her obnoxious hamster and cuddly pitbull."
