Plot: Nalia, princess and heir to the throne of Thorvaldor, has lived a life of privilege and comfort. But on her 16th birthday she is told that she is only a false princess, a stand-in for the real princess Nalia, and cast out. Nalia, now known as Sinda, discovers she has magical powers and returns to the capital as a Wizard’s scribe. There she discovers a secret that could change the course of Thorvaldor’s history forever.
Why I’m waiting: I’ve read so many stories where a poor girl finds out that she is actually a princess, I’m curious to read the opposite for a change.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. I plan to participate for the next year at least (because my to read pile really needs to be longer ;P). If you’d like to join in, grab a graphic, write a post and leave a link on her site.
