Avva is rebellious and stubborn. In an act of defiance, she flies across the straight to land in the HInterlands. The act is forbidden by and edict made by Hades. “Any outsider that steps foot on Gaia will come to me,” Avva meets Prince Solinair, and both are smitten with each other. When she returns home, Queen Delia has the princess locked in a dungeon. When Hades comes for her, the Queen offers to take her daughter’s place. He accepts the exchange and Avva is automatically made Queen. Against the advice of many elders, Avva offers Prince Sol aid in the war. Unfortunately, this left Azure Blue vulnerable and is attacked by Prince Sol’s brothers. Azure Blue, by A.L. Hawke, is a fantasy story encompassing nymphs, humans, gods, flying unicorns, and the underworld.
