Genre: Young Adult Fantasy

For Princess Alyrra, choice is a luxury she’s never had … until she’s betrayed.

Princess Alyrra has never enjoyed the security or power of her rank. Between her family’s cruelty and the court’s contempt, she has spent her life in the shadows. Forced to marry a powerful foreign prince, Alyrra embarks on a journey to meet her betrothed with little hope for a better future. 

But powerful men have powerful enemies—and now, so does Alyrra. Betrayed during a magical attack, her identity is switched with another woman’s, giving Alyrra the first choice she’s ever had: to start a new life for herself or fight for a prince she’s never met. But Alyrra soon finds that Prince Kestrin is not at all what she expected. While walking away will cost Kestrin his life, returning to the court may cost Alyrra her own. As Alyrra is coming to realize, sometimes the hardest choice means learning to trust herself (Goodreads)

~Why I'm Crushing~

Discovered this lovely cover over at Delphina Reads Too Much. This is the second cover for this book, and I have to say, there's something about it that I just love. First, the colors are just so pretty and vibrant, and I love the way her hair is flowing. It seems as though the princess is running away from the castle, her home which also seconds as a sort of prison for her. But where, or rather who, is she running to? This cover makes me want to find out!
