Review: The False Princess

Synopsis: Princess and heir to the throne of Thorvaldor, Nalia's led a privileged life at court.  But everything changes when it's revealed, 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 of Vivaskari, her best friend, Keirnan, and the only life she's ever known.

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.

My thoughts: So a few days ago, I was just walking aimlessly around my local library(mostly in the teen section) and then I saw it, The False Princess. For some reason I couldn't help myself but run for the book. I think I was afraid that someone else would snatch it up. Anyways... I checked it out, started reading it, and BAM! I was addicted to it. The False Princess was a stunning novel, full of suspense, great characters and a trilling plot that twisted and turned.
