Haydn of Mars
By Al Sarrantonio
On Mars, in the distant future, the princess Haydn’s arranged marriage cannot save her beloved Republic. Her arch-enemy, the warrior-woman Frane, seeks to make herself Queen while Haydn–the legitimate heir– must flee for her life. A reluctant symbol for those who would restore the monarchy, Haydn is too young and unprepared to assume the throne–but determined to become a great Queen.
