A half-android, half-human girl is accused of murder in this tautly-paced YA thriller told through fragmented flashbacks and court testimony, set in a futuristic fantasy theme park.
Welcome to the Kingdom, a dazzling fantasy theme park where “happily ever after” is not just a promise, but a rule. Home to genetically engineered F.E.S. (formerly extinct species) that roam the park, the park employs cutting-edge technology to make dreams come alive.
Ana is one of seven beautiful “Fantasists”—half-human, half-android princesses whose only purpose is to entertain Kingdom visitors. Counter to her programming, she begins to experience emotions and feelings . . . even allowing herself to fall in love for the first time.
