Publisher's Summary

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 16th 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.

What a Surprise!

First of all, I wanted to let you know that this book is actually way better than it sounded or looked. This had been the most refreshing YA novel I've listened to for a very long time. I'm sure people in any age would enjoy it tremendously. I wasn't sure about it at first because I usually read YA paranormal romance, but when I saw the review on Amazon.com, I decided to take a chance. Turns out to be a fantastic decision. There's mystery, friendship, romance, heartbreaking betrayals........So much unexpected twists and turns. I personally had so much fun listening to it that I finished it in one day. I simply cannot find anything to criticize about this book, and I don't think you will be able to either.

Great Story Great Performance

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really enjoyed this book. I loved all of the characters and how the narrator brought them to life. This is a standalone book and although the story was resolved I really was left wanting the story to continue. Not because the story was lacking but because it was such a good story that I wanted it to continue.
