Everything about my life is a lie.
As a hidden twin princess, born second, I have only one purpose—to sacrifice my life for my sister if death comes for her.
I live in the white-walled city of Enora under the guise of a poor, obscure girl of no standing, hiding my face and my magical ability to turn sand into glass.
When danger is present, I slip into the palace and into the role of the true princess of my desert dominion of Aryd.
But if you think I’m going to quietly let a man made of shadow take me in my sister’s place…you don’t know me at all.
~Mereneith Evangeline VII of Aryd
