The Heart.
The God of Love seeks a bride who is pure in heart and full of life—full of soul. Instead of a woman, he finds a child with laughter in her heart. Waiting for her to grow up, he befriends her, pretending to be nothing more than a blue-eyed boy with wild, tangled hair.

The Soul.
Left on the temple doorstep, a young girl turns the lives of the priestesses upside down . . . until one summer day before her eighteenth birthday, a traveling oracle tells her she is to marry a stranger in a foreign land.

The Nightmare.
An ancient demon—half-man, half-snake—wants to destroy anything the gods love. When she was a child, he haunted her dreams, but now he stalks her across the countryside. If he catches her, he’ll devour her.

If only this were longer. It'a lacking a few minor details which could have been helped with a longer length.

But what we do get in this less than a hundred paged story is great, we fall in love with the main character and get caught up in her adventure. Starting from when she's only six where we want to help and nurture her to when she's 18 and we're routing for her to overcome her demons (or defeat the one trying to destroy her, either way) and get a happy ending.
And she does.

And though expected I still found myself very happy with her outcome.
