Glimmering like a jewel behind its gateway, The Kingdom™ is the most immersive fantasy theme park the world has ever seen: a place where guests soar on virtual dragons, castles loom like giants, and bioengineered species—formerly extinct—roam free. It is also home to the Fantasists: seven beautiful android-hybrid princesses who are engineered to make dreams come true.
As one of the most favored Fantasists, Ana adores her life at the park. But when she meets Owen, she begins to experience emotions beyond her programming, including, for the first time… love. And as Ana evolves, so does her perspective of the glittering Kingdom she has always called home.
But the fairytale takes a dark turn when Owen goes missing, his ID bracelet found charred in the park’s incinerator. All evidence points to Ana. She is accused of Owen’s murder, igniting the trial of the century.
Through courtroom testimony, interviews, and Ana’s own memories, emerges a wholly original, often shocking tale of love, lies, and the frightening truths that often fuel our wildest fantasies.
