Miss Stake is a short story getting us hyped up for C.G Powell's new series. The Miss Series. C.G. does an excellent job portraying her characters. After finishing this short story I am anxious to know what happens from here on out.

Synopsis: 
Before the time of the great pyramids, there was a place like none other, a city of glass and metal rising from the depths of the ocean. Shrouded in mist, the island of Hy-Brasil and its capital Atlantis lay hidden from the rest of the world by its people, a race of long lived, interstellar nomads.

What secrets would you keep to save your kingdom? On the Queen’s deathbed, the sonless King Rowe is force into a promise to allow his five daughters to marry for love. A promise he wished he had never made, and one he will have to break to save the kingdom.

The youngest of five daughters, Jael, spent most of her time at her father’s side learning to run a kingdom. Believed to be the King’s favorite, Jael is shocked when he betroths her to a longtime friend of his, Prince Sarik of Hy-Brasil. Soon she will learn that world is full of secrets and one of them is her very own birth. Will the secret that bonds her to Sarik be the ultimate downfall of a kingdom?

Review:
C.G. Powell has done the impossible. Powell has written a book that falls in the sci-fi genre that I could read AND appreciate. I have to admit that the Fantasy, Folklore, and romance were more the factors that made me enjoy this novel. I'm just not a sci-fi girl. BUT no matter what the reason I still enjoyed every minute of the novel. C.G. Powell is a great author. She makes sure that her characters are fun, interesting and well described.
