This tale follows the Princess Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree. Like most of our loved fairytale princesses, Princess Ani can talk to animals - specifically geese and a horse. But the Word on Ani's tongue is seen as evil and a princess - the Crown Princess especially - should not be able to do such unhuman things. But is speaking the language of geese the worst of the powers Ani could have been gifted? Or are there powers that are far worse?
This tale continues with a princess in hiding, betrayals, daring bravery, true love, discovery of self worth, magic, the power of friendship, and a clear message that your voice is more powerful than you think.
