Description

Only One Princess Can Wear the Crown . . .

A year after her betrothal to the Kyrenican prince, no one has suspected that Princess Wilha has been a decoy—and that Elara, her secret twin sister, has been pretending to be Wilha all along. Back in Galandria, their kingdom is deteriorating, and returning home could bring peace—or add fuel to the slow-burning fire.

When their father, the king, mysteriously dies and Elara and Wilha's younger brother, Andrei, claims the Galandrian throne, he reveals the girls' deception. Viewed as traitors, they realize they are now fighting for their lives—and for their country.

In Jenny Lundquist's concluding sequel to The Princess in the Opal Mask, Elara and Wilha must decide who will become queen. Or rather, who will become the next savior for their people.
