Waiting on Wednesday: The False Princess by Eilis O'Neil

The False Princess by Eilis O'Neal (Published by EgmontUSA, July 13, 2010)

Princess and heir to the throne of Thorvaldor, Nalia knows her role in life. 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.
While struggling with her new peasant life, Sinda discovers that magic runs through her veins–long-suppressed, dangerous magic that she must learn to control. Returning to the city to seek answers, she instead uncovers a secret that could change the course of Thorvaldor’s history forever.

I love fantasy novels set in medieval worlds with royalty and castles and magic, so I think I'll really enjoy this book. I really like the cover art as well. This is also another Tenners book so I will be adding it to my list of books I hope to read for the 2010 Debut Author Challenge.

Ooh, really interesting!! Usually with this type of theme, we see the other side of the story-the peasant who turns out to be a princess. It will be interesting to see the other side!!
