Imagine finding out that your whole life has been a lie of royal proportions. Shortly after turning 16, Princess Nalia is told that she is really a commoner named Sinda. Now that the prophecy against the real princess has shown to not come true, Sinda is sent away and the real Nalia is returning to claim her rightful position.
Bring raised as royalty has not prepared Sinda for a life as a dyer’s niece. Try as she might, she does not fit in with the simple village life. When the magic hidden deep within her suddenly emerges, Sinda knows she must return to the capitol city and learn how to handle her new powers. Once there she reconnects with her childhood best friend, the noble born Kiernan. Together they uncover a plot that started with the prophecy. Now it is up to Sinda and Kiernan to solve the mystery without anyone losing their lives.
Strong female characters. Sinda, her aunt (the village dyer) and several other characters are portrayed as having strong personalities.
It’s been a few weeks since I’ve read this book. Nothing is sticking out as one thing that I didn’t like about it. However, nothing is sticking out as one thing that is really and truly spectacular either.
