Daniel took Phillip’s hand in his own and twined their fingers together. As the two princes walked toward the shimmering glass wall, Daniel swung their hands back and forth freely between them. He looked down at his hand in Phillip’s, seeing their fingers clasped tightly together, and he knew that his hand, his heart, and his very life had found their home. The unspoken promise in the other prince’s words washed over his skin like warm sunshine pushed by a breeze through the trees. Daniel wasn’t sure what his future would bring. Life as the whispered-about secret lover of the king. Life as the uneasily accepted consort of the king. Life ruling upon the throne beside the king and beloved by the citizens. Daniel didn’t care, as long as his life included Phillip.

The rules of royal life have governed the kingdoms of Clarameer for thousands of years, but Prince Phillip and Prince Daniel know that these rules don’t provide for the happily ever after they seek.
A fateful, sleepless night brings the two young men together and sends them on a quest out into the kingdoms. On their travels, they encounter meddlesome fairies, an ambitious stepmother, disgruntled princesses and vengeful kings as they learn about life, love, friendship and family. Most of all, the two young men must learn how to write their own rules of ever after.
