This story is an enchanting tale of magic and history, filled with elegant, extravagant parties and dresses. I enjoyed the author's nods to real historical events, but also the twists and turns in this love-driven plot. It was a delightful mix of determined characters and immersive setting, and I was sucked into the story right until the end!

I did not like this book at all. The writing was odd, there were so many things happening at once, and I felt like the author didn't need to neatly pair everyone off at the end like she did. It felt childish and unnecessary.

I really enjoyed this book. It was really good, though admittedly confusing at times. It has good plot and well developed characters. I can't honestly say that I was the biggest fan of the ending, but that is for the reader alone to decide. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who's enjoyed other books by this author.

Two girls.
One beautiful and strong.
One plain and powerless.
Only one shall be queen...
And the other shall serve her.
But as I awake from my sleep, I still do not know-
Which one of them is my daughter?
And which on is the traitor
