Review quote

"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. "--VOYA"show more
