The Badlands Saga (Homelands Book 1) by Derek Weisman
The Black Diamond plague has taken a toll on Princess Cathy. Her kingdom is under quarantine, her pets turn into food, and her husband slowly rotting away from the disease. To make matters worse, the royal court is too incompetent and selfish to bring order to the land.
As all hope seems lost, Cathy finds a cure that could save the kingdom. A special flower that can cure anything including Black Diamond. However, the flower was in a hostile land west of her home.
A land called the Badlands.
Knowing the Royal Court is useless, she goes on a solo crusade to save her kingdom. Unknowingly to her, her crusade is well-set trap to keep the status quo. While stopping the fires of revolution from taking over the land.
