Mirage is one of those books I didn’t know I needed until I read it. It’s a very relationship-centric book, and mostly builds up to a plot without getting deep into it. In another book I might have hated the lack of “plot,” but here I loved it.
Amani is kidnapped and secretly brought to the royal palace. Here she discovers that she has an uncanny resemblance to the horrible half-Vathel Princess Maram. To protect against attacks on Maram’s life, Amani must learn to talk and act like Maram, to be Maram, in order to stand in her place in dangerous situations.
