Once Upon A Time   [Incomplete]

Princess Shasta Soltranis of Lysteria enjoys a pampered life of court dances, elaborate ballgowns and the occasional secret fencing match with her twin brother Daric. But on the day of her thirteenth birthday, her entire world is shattered by a brutal assassination attempt that takes her brother's life and very nearly hers as well. Her father declares that the mysterious slave boy who saved the princess is to become her personal bodyguard, to be trained as a soldier and follow Shasta literally every moment of the day, even sleeping at her bedside. What Shasta doesn't know is that her new guardian has a very well-kept secret: he's a actually a girl!
