9780062248978: The Chosen Prince

From master storyteller Diane Stanley comes a spellbinding tale based on Shakespeare's The Tempest of two princes—one chosen, one lost—and a mysterious girl on a magical island, all caught in a great web of destiny.

On the day of his birth, Prince Alexos is revealed to be the long-awaited champion of Athene. He grows up lonely, conscious of all that is expected of him. But Alexos discovers that being a champion isn't about fame and glory—it's about sacrifice and courage.

Alexos follows the course of his destiny through war and loss and a deadly confrontation with his enemy to its end: shipwreck on a magical, fog-shrouded island. There he meets the unforgettable Aria and faces the greatest challenge of his life.

From the Back Cover:

On the day of his birth, Prince Alexos is revealed to be the long-awaited champion of Athene. It will be his task to restore the kingdom to the favor of the gods—but no one knows exactly how.

Alexos grows up lonely in his greatness, conscious of all that is expected of him. But it soon becomes clear that being the chosen one is not about fame and glory. It's all about sacrifice and courage, and he is being tested.

Alexos follows the course of his destiny through war and loss on the borderlands and a deadly confrontation with his enemy to its ultimate end: shipwreck on a magical, fog-shrouded island. There he meets the unforgettable Aria, the girl he's loved for years but has seen only in his dreams, and faces the greatest challenge of his life.

Master storyteller Diane Stanley weaves an epic tale of warring kingdoms, shock-ing betrayal, and forgiveness inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest and set in a mythical ancient Greece.
