Shipwrecked on a strange shore, Érard is intent on completing his quest and winning the kingdom.
Transformed before birth into an animal by his mother's ill-fated contact with fairy magic and left for dead, Cat has been raised by the fairies with the anticipation that one day his prince would come. When his prince does finally arrive, half drowned and lost, Cat fears abandonment once more, and allows Érard to believe that he is female.
Érard leaves to win back the title to his own kingdom, but returns, drawn back by friendship and a love that the prince doesn't entirely understand. Cat begins to realize that he does not wish to live without his prince. But, will Érard accept and love him for who he truly is?
Sometimes, compassion can solve what swords cannot, and love does truly conquer all.
