Once upon a time . . . A baby is born in privilege, blooming under the warmth of his parents' love. Jealousy sprouts and brings with it malevolent intentions. A king and queen cursed with an empty kingdom. A child abandoned in revenge. A misfit, the boy should turn hard and cold among the thorns he grows in. Despite lifelong attempts to destroy him, this child does not wither. Underneath his insecurity, he maintains a heart with the tenderest center. A heart that plays the most beautiful music. Not far from this misfit but in a whole different world, a dashing prince lives with a crown of expectations adorning his golden head. A prince raised with honor and duty. A prince expected to marry. Alas, during a simple walk in the forest, he is enchanted by a different song. And so a fairy tale is woven, two worlds colliding, secrets revealed, love everlasting . . . And a realization that not all fairy tales require a princess. Contains mature themes.
