Sinda is sent to live with her only surviving relative, an aunt who is a dyer in a distant village. She is a cold, scornful woman with little patience for her newfound niece, and Sinda proves inept at even the simplest tasks. But when Sinda discovers that magic runs through her veins - long-suppressed, dangerous magic that she must learn to control - she realizes that she can never learn to be a simple village girl.
Returning to Vivaskari for answers, Sinda finds her purpose as a wizard scribe, rediscovers the boy who saw her all along, and uncovers a secret that could change the course of Thorvaldor's history, forever.
A dazzling first novel, The False Princess is an engrossing fantasy full of mystery, action, and romance.
- I can't believe I read this before I started blogging. It has been a while. I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I devoured books long before I blogged.
- This is a wonderful story with great characters and a well thought out plot!
- I don't understand how the king and queen could just give up a child they've raised as their own? Don't they feel any love for Sinda? For me, it would have bee hard. I would have grown attached.
- I loved Sinda! I could really relate to her. I hate confrontation, so I don't always speak up. I sometimes give up without a fight.
- Sinda's character development was wonderful! She grew so much, and she learned so much about herself. I loved that.
- The story is riveting from beginning to end. I was never bored. The story kept adding new things that kept me guessing.
- Kiernan was awesome! I liked his light and fun disposition. I also admired his dedication as a friend.
- I like that this is a stand alone. There aren't very many fantasy stand alones.
- Great book! Go read it!
