Annie Douglass Lima’s gift as a storyteller is a remarkable one. She has crafted a tale of lose, woe and heartache. But intertwined within the tale there are threads of hope, love and loyalty beyond all things. The Prince of Alasia is a gut level tale about the cruelty of conquest and the hope of survival. Ms. Lima has painted a picture of true heroic efforts of a young man’s will to loose everything to find a way to bring back hope to the people he has been born to rule over. Annie Douglass Lima has penned a classic tale that should be in every fantasy enthusiast’s library.
