The Princess Trilogy consists of Princess, A True Story; Princess Sultana's Daugthers; and Princess Sultana's Circle. Sultana is a Saudi Arabian princess, born to uncountable wealth. She has four mansions on three continents, her own private jet, glittering jewels, designer dresses galore. But she has no freedom, no control over her own life, no value but as a bearer of sons. Sultana is a member of the Saudi royal family, closely related to the king. For the sake of her daughters, she has decided to take the risk of speaking out about the life of women in her country, regardless of their rank. She must hide her identity for fear that the religious leaders in her country would call for her death to punish her honesty. Only a woman in her position could possibly hope to escape from being revealed and punished. Although Sultana lives with constant fear of retribution, her passion to provide her daughters a better life transcends her fear and fuels her desire for change.

All three titles in one volume! Runeweaver All Zaine had to do was reach out a hand and he could take it. Sweat broke out on his forehead as he battled the desire to take the book. If he took it, his fate would be sealed. He didn’t want to be a runeweaver – but he did want to touch the book. He wanted it so badly that he found his hand stretching out to it even as his mind screamed not to… The search is on for a new king or queen. The search is also on for runeweavers who can help contenders penetrate the Circle of Dreams and win the throne. Zaine couldn’t have chosen a more perilous time to discover his fate. For runeweavers must take centre stage in the battle for the new monarch. He is destined to play a unique and dangerous role – to fulfil a prophecy that could spell great danger, and even death, for young Zaine. Let the Contest begin! Timeweaver Zaine felt numbed by the book’s similarity to his own life-reading. She came from another world and had been alive for a very long time. How could their life-readings be so similar? **** The quest for the new king or queen in the Circle of Dreams has ended in disaster. The circle is destroyed and a fury of storm dragons has been released, determined to wreak vengeful havoc on the world. Young runeweaver Zaine is blamed for the catastrophe, so it is up to him to battle against time and the dragons to restore peace. On his quest, Zaine meets a girl whose fate seems eerily like his own. Their lives appear mirror images of one another: two circles, two destinies, and now only two possible outcomes – death or life. Zaine has more than enough advice, and a jumble of new, mysterious runes that may help if he can unlock their secrets. The only thing he does not have is time – and time is what he needs most! Starweaver "Say the runes in this order, without pausing." Zaine tensed. If he got it wrong, the entire world would shatter. He tried to tell himself that the world didn't have much longer anyway; and even if he failed it would be better than time just stopping - wouldn't it? *** After a long period of disruption Willow Castle has been rebuilt, and the country's ruler seems to have been chosen. But now the days seem unnaturally long. When the sky fills with shooting stars Princess Guyan provides the chilling answer - time is slowing down and will soon come to a complete standstill. They need the magic of a starweaver. But the only starweaver in their world is Zaine - a young man with a reputation more for destroying worlds than saving them...

In the international bestseller, Princess: The True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia, Princess Al-Sa’ud and the acclaimed author Jean Sasson began a remarkable series of books. Now, more than twenty-five years later, this compelling journey continues as we follow the fortunes and the dazzling life of the Princess, her friends and her family. But, of course, there is a less glamorous, much darker side to this engaging series, and in Stepping Out of the Shadows Jean and the Princess focus their attention on how, despite positive news on civil rights reforms, Saudi women still suffer physical and psychological abuse and have little legal protection due to the archaic guardianship laws of the land. So, although this is a kingdom on the threshold of revolutionary change – change spearheaded by the young Saudi Crown Prince who is keen to modernize his country – any thoughts of equal rights and the chance to lead an independent life remain little more than dreams for most Saudi women. Whilst the Princess acknowledges and welcomes the reforms that are on the horizon, through stories of joy and sorrow, we see how she is determined to continue to fight for equal rights for women in this, her beloved kingdom.
