Summary

Orphaned as a child in the crumbling village of Tulan, Elara is determined to learn her true identity, even if it means wielding a dagger. Meanwhile, in Galandria’s royal capital, Princess Wilha stands out as someone to either worship or fear. Though no one knows why the king has always made her conceal her face—including Wilha herself.

When an assassination attempt threatens the peace of neighboring kingdoms, Elara and Wilha are brought face to face . . . with a chance at claiming new identities. However, with dark revelations now surfacing, both girls will need to decide if brighter futures are worth the binding risks.

reviews

“Light romance and strong female characters make it an ideal choice for tween girls, and the dual viewpoint narration aids the plot's momentum. This delightfully fanciful tale will find a captive audience among fans of Gail Carson Levine.”
—School Library Journal

“Lundquist’s debut YA novel combines elements of Cinderella with The Man in the Iron Mask. . . . With its swift pace, charismatic heroines, and all kinds of intrigue, Lundquist sets up a compelling and detailed history for her kingdoms, with legends of strong women rulers. Fantasy readers will eagerly await the promised second title."
—Booklist

“A novel of royal intrigue.”
—Kirkus Reviews

This fairy tale, told from the alternating perspectives of Wilha and Elara, is engaging and action-packed...plenty of intriguing twists to keep the pages turning. Fans of romantic fantasy will be left begging for a sequel.
