Maelyn was not born a princess. The king found her as a child, the lone survivor of a poor village slaughtered by the Red Fever. Suddenly she became a princess of Runa Realm, the first of nine orphans adopted by the king.
By her eighteenth years, Maelyn rules over Runa and a family of nine sisters. But some call the princesses frauds and imposters, a handful of urchins raised into royalty. Even Uncle Jarrod, the High King of Grunwold, seems determined to prove that Maelyn no longer deserves to be a princess. With a family losing faith in her, and a kingdom growing dangerously hostile, even Maelyn begins to wonder if she is truly a real princess. And if her riches will turn to rags once again...
The Nine Princesses Novellas is a series that chronicles the adventures of an unconventional family of princesses, the struggles they face in a kingdom often hostile to their humble origins, and the day-to-day dramas of nine young women who personalities often clash like swords.

I wasn't expecting much from Maelyn when I starting reading it as I was aware it was a short story and aimed at the lower aged market for the YA market. However, I was quickly engulfed within the story and found myself wanting to know what would happen next. As understandably with a short story there are one or two events which happen in this book and then an overall event which will continue to develop within future books.

Overall this story was a simple, delightful and entertaining story and I quickly whizzed through it one afternoon. I love the idea that each book is written from a different princess' point of view and I think that that will be the winner for this series throughout. I've already bought the second book in the series Coralina and will no doubt be reading that one afternoon in the not too distant future.
