King Markon of Montalier is at the end of his tether. His son, Prince Parrin, is afflicted with a rather nasty curse that slaughters, maims, or brutally attacks any woman with whom he so much as flirts. After the rumor that sweeps around the kingdom, promising that any woman breaking the "curse" will be eligible to marry the prince, there is no shortage of willing volunteers. Unfortunately, there is also no shortage of bodies piling up.
Markon needs to do something, but what? Can a visiting enchantress from Avernse help, or is she simply another accident waiting to happen? And will Markon be able to give her up to his son if she does break the curse?
Twelve Days of Faery is the first novella in the Shards of a Broken Sword trilogy.

Just what a faerie tale should be
This story was charming and clever and whimsical and warm. It strikes exactly the right tone and stays true to it throughout. I very much enjoyed it.

Everything a fairy tale should be
Reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones and Patricia C Wrede, this story is a must for lovers of all things fairy tale.
