Princess Elise d’Orleans, niece to King Louis XIII, is a spoiled brat used to having everyone cater to her every whim. She hates planet Amorgos, hates the races living there, and hates the fact that everyone believes she is their Redeemer. In other words, she is a royal pain in the derriere!
Elise is supposed to be the One to free them from enslavement of their common enemy, the Asmodai. But more than anything else, Elise hates that the only other human in Amorgos is a stinky peasant named Pierre, who doesn’t know to cater to her every whim.
"Shield of the Palidine" chronicles the journey of Elise to find the true Redeemer, as well as Pierre’s transformation to a warrior of immense abilities, and their unexpected and unbridled love, despite the reasons that they shouldn’t have a happy ending. Above all, this clever fantasy is not only entertaining, but it also teaches lessons about bigotry and intolerance
