Princess and heir to the throne of Thorvaldor, Nalia knows her role in life. But everything changes when she learns, just after her sixteenth birthday, that she is a false princess–a stand-in for the real Nalia, who has been hidden away for her protection. Cast out with little more than the clothes on her back, the girl now called Sinda must leave behind the city, her best friend, Kiernan, and the only life she’s ever known.
While struggling with her new peasant life, Sinda discovers that magic runs through her veins–long-suppressed, dangerous magic that she must learn to control. Returning to the city to seek answers, she instead uncovers a secret that could change the course of Thorvaldor’s history forever.
I had first discovered this book on Goodreads, then later saw it on several blogger's websites with a different (not illustrated) cover. I noticed that they still kept a bit of the original cover on the necklace she wears. (I felt so smart when I saw that, haha!)
Honestly though,The False Princess sounds right up my alley! Royalty, magic, and fairy tales! WANT!
