The Princess in the Opal Mask

The Princess in the Opal Mask

Somewhere in the kingdom of Galandria, someone knows my real name. . . .
Somewhere, someone must remember me, and my name.

In the faraway land of Tulan, sixteen-year-old orphan Elara has spent her entire life trying to find out her real name. While she serves for the cruel and manipulative Ogden family, she feels that pertinent information about her past is being withheld. Meanwhile, in the kingdom of Galandria, Princess Wilha (known as “The Masked Princess”), is plagued with questions of her own. Despite being the most recognizable icon in the kingdom, why has she been forced to wear a mask every day since birth? And why won't her own father, the king, explain why she must cover her face at all times?

When Elara and Wilha are brought face to face, an intimate connection is exposed, as well as answers that force them to play the part of the other. As both are thrust into lives they never knew existed, hidden conspiracies begin to surface, and the fate of two opposing kingdoms rests squarely on their untrained shoulders.

Follow two unforgettable journeys that lead these characters to roles they were always born to play.
