The Princess in the Opal Mask, by Jenny Lundquist


Every Fairy-Tale Ending Has a Price. . . .

Orphaned as a child in the crumbling village of Tulan, Elara is determined to learn her true identity, even if it means wielding a dagger. Meanwhile, in Galandria's royal capital, Princess Wilha stands out as someone to either worship or fear. Though no one knows why the king has always made her conceal her face--including Wilha herself.

When an assassination attempt threatens the peace of neighboring kingdoms, Elara and Wilha are brought face to face . . . with a chance at claiming new identities. However, with dark revelations now surfacing, both girls will need to decide if brighter futures are worth the binding risks.

My review:
     A great read for young adults, this story follows two girls Elara and Wilha – one a princess and the other an orphan and how their lives become intertwined.  Wilha is forced to wear a mask her entire life and never being told why and Elara not even knowing her true identity.  The author keeps you interested throughout the entire book wanting to see what the fates of these two girls are and how they grow and adapt to the changing environment in the story.  It kept me interested until the very end and now waiting for the sequel to see where their lives go next!!!
