Brianna Sugalski

With a background in Journalism, Brianna has always been fascinated by the historical aspect of literature. She is captivated by the riveting ability of a simple story, to turn eager readers into time travelers. She now writes YA fantasy to empower teens and women to ditch the damsel act—to become heroes in their own right and spin their own versions of “Happily Ever After.”


“On the eve of her tenth birthday, it is discovered that Princess Lilac Trécesson of Bretagne can speak to Darklings—the feared creatures residing in the enchanted forest, Brocéliande. After years of humiliation and controversy, her coronation draws nigh and the townspeople are riotous, refusing to be led by a wicked woman so blatantly unfit to ascend to the throne. Between everyone dreading her coronation and the other noble families vying for her position, Lilac prepares for the worst… until one fateful morning, when she receives a letter from a witch: A curious offer, to conjure the cure required to rid her of darkness forever. Days before her ceremony, Lilac embarks on a journey through the wildwood in pursuit of the mysterious witch who can help her, and to discover the meaning behind her curse. With only an inherited dagger— and unsolicited help of the gregarious stranger who inserts himself on her quest—the princess must traverse Broceliande, making it back in time to claim her rightful position as Majesty Sovereign.

That is, if the Darklings don’t get to her first.”
