Elise Dalriss hears her great-granddaughter recount a minstrel's tale about a beautiful princess asleep in a tower. It pushes open a door to the past, a door Elise has long kept locked. For Elise was the companion to the real princess who slumbered, and she is the only one left who knows what actually happened so many years ago. Her story unveils a labyrinth where secrets connect to an inconceivable evil. As only Elise understands all too well, the truth is no fairy tale.
