Princess and heir to the throne of Thorvaldor, Nalia has led a privileged life at court. But everything changes when she learns, 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, her best friend, Kiernan, and the only life she’s ever known.

Sent to live with her only surviving relative, Sinda proves inept at even the simplest tasks. Then she discovers that long-suppressed, dangerous magic runs through her veins, and she realizes that she will never learn to be just a simple village girl. Sinda returns to the city to seek answers. Instead, she rediscovers the boy who refused to forsake her and uncovers a secret that could change the course of Thorvaldor’s history forever.

An intricately plotted and completely satisfying adventure, The False Princess is both an engaging tale in the tradition of great fantasy novels and a story never told before that will enchant—and surprise—its listeners.

    " Delightful addition to this genre. Nalia's always been the princes, but just after she turns 16, that reality is snatched away, and she is forced to find out who she really is. With the help of her best friend, Kiernan, and a flighty sorceress, she succeeds. Fun love story and fantasy, fairy tale adventure. "

    " This book is great! It is definitely a page-turner! Full of twists! A great young adult book. I'd recommend this to my best friend, Abby AND Olivia! "

    " I think another reviewer described this as a book 'for middle-school girls and their mothers'. That's a good description. I liked the friendship between the two main characters and of course the love story (totally clean). Entertaining, light read. Well, except I totally cried at the beginning of the book when the heroine was kicked out of her home and family (maybe that's just because I'm pregnant and prone to crying?). Of course the ending was happy, though. "

    " I was really enjoying this book until I read a friends review that said it dragged in the middle because a lot of inner dialogue was going on. I was like, "she's right!" and then I just couldn't see past it. She repeated herself a lot SPOILER ALERT like with Kiernan, how many times did she have the argument in her head, does he like me? No we're just friends. He's noble. I'm not... bla blah blah... it got old. But the plot was REALLY good. I just think it could have been edited down a bit without all the ramblings going on in her head. "
