Overview

The Opal Crown by Jenny Lundquist

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.

'The Opal Crown' is a mesmerizing second book in young adult fantasy series that continues to follow the fate of two twin sisters - Elara and Wilha - as their younger brother takes the thrown of Galandra and exposes the girls' deception. Elara and Wilha have been branded as traitors and are on the run - to save their lives and their country. They must figure out which of them will make the best queen - and essentially the savior - for their country after they overthrow their brother and take the crown. Which girl will be the one to wear the crown and bring peace back to Galandra? I was a bit nervous before starting this book due to the fact that it's the second in a series and it had a lot to live up to after the spectacular beginning to the series. I had nothing to worry about because this book was just as fantastic as the first and far exceeded my hopes and expectations for it. The story was told in alternating first person point-of-views - those of Elara and Wilha. I usually love this type of story telling because it gives the reader a much deeper insight into the characters and their personalities, along with how each of them live their lives and respond to all the different occurrences in the novel. I liked getting to know more about each girl and their relationship with each others as well as the other characters in the book. I also enjoyed watching each girl grow and mature throughout the book. Both girls continued to be realistic and I immediately identified with each of them early in the book. The setting took us back to the land of Galandria - and the description of the land and its various details made the story seem like a fairy tale to me. I continued to love reading all about the realm of kingdoms, soldiers, wars between other parts of the kingdom. All of these various concepts brought the story into a new light and an intriguing landscape for it all to take place. The plot was enchanting, and less predictable than the first book. I enjoyed watching the plot unfold and to see how each girl would handle the situations that occur and how they would overcome the obstacles in their paths. The writing was beautifully done with detailed descriptions and vivid imagery that had me easily immersed in the world that the author created. This is by far one of the best YA fantasy books I've read this year and I'm already dying for more. I can't wait to see what will happen next with Elara and Wilha along with the kingdom of Galandria. Very highly recommended for fans of YA fantasy and fairy tales! Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
