As Princess Lissar reaches womanhood, it is clear to all the kingdom that in her breathtaking beauty she is the mirror image of her mother, the queen. But this seeming blessing forces her to flee for safety from her father's lust and madness. With her loyal dog Ash at her side, Lissar will unlock a door to a world of magic, where she will find the key to her survival—and an adventure beyond her wildest dreams. A retelling of "Donkeyskin," one of Charles Perrault's lesser-known fairy tales.

Unlike many of McKinley's other books, this one is written for an adult (not YA or children's) audience. Warning for rape and incest.
