Summary, etc.:
"Nor once dreamed of seeing the wondrous wealth and beauty of Ilara, the kingdom that's ruled her village for as long as anyone can remember. But when a childhood accident left her with a permanent scar, it became clear that her identical twin sister, Zadie, would likely be chosen to marry the Crown Prince--while Nor remained behind, unable to ever set foot on land. Then Zadie is gravely injured, and Nor is sent to Ilara in her place. To Nor's dismay, her future husband, Prince Ceren, is as forbidding and cold as his home--a castle carved into a mountain and devoid of sunlight. And as she grows closer to Ceren's brother, the charming Prince Talin, Nor uncovers startling truths about a failing royal bloodline, a murdered queen...and a plot to destroy the home she was once so eager to leave. In order to save her people, Nor must learn to negotiate the treacherous protocols of a court where lies reign and obsession rules. But discovering her own formidable strength may be the one move that costs her everything: the crown, Varenia and Zadie"

    Twin sisters Zadie and Nor, from the fishing village of Varenia, are the latest in a long line of beautiful girls intended to marry the prince of the kingdom of Ilara. It's a fierce competition, as any small imperfection in looks could cause one daughter to be passed over for another. When Zadie is chosen, Nor is both relieved and sad: she never wanted to be the tribute, but she will never see her sister again. But Zadie is determined to stay in Varenia and marry her true love; she deliberately injures herself, causing the elders of the village to send Nor to the prince in her place. Prince Ceren is cruel and murderous, and Nor finds herself drawn much more to his older brother, Talin. The pace of this fantasy is slow but steady, easily weaving together the backdrop of the village and the story of the twins. The ending hints at the possibility of a sequel, and there's enough romance, mystery, and suspense here to intrigue readers of all kinds. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
