Synopsis

A sheltered prince. A sudden death. An unexpected choice. How will Prince Marcelo react to discovering he’s The Contingency Plan?
For eighteen years, there has been peace between Sheburat and the kingdom of Zioneven. The untimely death of a princess throws the marriage arrangement -- the final phase to complete the terms of the treaty -- into disarray, and the contingency plan is put into motion. Now the Crown Prince of Zioneven gets to make his own choice from among the princess’s younger siblings.
As a rare royal son in the matriarchal sovereignty of Sheburat, Prince Marcelo grew up knowing he would never marry. Never. Royal sons did not marry. Period. Except, Prince Efren isn’t from Sheburat, and he has other plans.

 

Freya’s Review

Upon the unexpected death of Princess Marcela, a marriage to the prince of the neighbouring kingdom is still required. Sub-clauses in the treaty gives Prince Efren the choice of any of the Princesses siblings.

This 8k shortie is set in a fantasy land similar to Robin Hood times - technology wise. It is a land where women rule, and men are kept relatively uneducated and at the bottom of the inheritance chain. Prince Efren hails from a land that some believe is backwards thinking, others applaud its free expression. Prince Marcelo, Princess Marcela’s twin brother, catches Efren’s eye.

What I liked about this story is that it didn’t try to fit a lifetime into a few words. The author picked one event and ran with it. The way Prince Marcelo is enlightened and finds awe in new knowledge gave him a delightful innocence. The story itself gave me a period of lovely escapism.
