You’ve been there from the beginning for the story of one princess and her long quest to save her sisters, but how much do you really know about those sisters? They’re the breakout characters of each volume, but then we sweep off on our dragon to find the next one.

Now Princeless proudly presents the return of the rest of the Princesses of the Ashe family in four stories all their own. Alize tells the story of how she came to be under the care of the Sphinx and met a very special prince. Angelica learns a little something about what she loves (other than herself). Angoisse and her spooky monster pet The Grimmorax find a new calling. And Andrea and Antonia try to find a way to use their magic for good – if they can get out of each other’s way. All this and a special bonus story about politics in the goblin kingdom! Come see the world of Princeless from perspectives you’ve never seen before.
