The Hidden Twin by Adi Rule
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin
Published Date: 22 March 2016
Amazon | The Book Depository
For eighteen years a
girl with no name, a Redwing, has been hidden away in a small attic room
within a city of hissing pipes and curving temples perched on the side
of the great volcano, Mol, while her sister, Jey - identical except for
her eyes - has lived her life in public as an only child. Their father had
hoped the hidden girl would one day grow up to be a normal human girl
and not the wicked creature mythology has promised, so he secretly
spared her life as an infant.
But when she switches places with
her sister, striking up a flirtation with the son of the Empress while
working in the royal gardens and gets attacked by two suspicious priests
on her journey home, she is forced to call forth fire to protect
herself, unleashing her previously dormant powers and letting her secret
out. She soon catches the attention of a cult with a thousand year old
grudge as well as a group of underground rebels, both seeking her for
their own gain. But when her sister goes missing and the Redwing
uncovers a great plot to awaken Mol and bring fiery destruction upon
them all, she is forced to embrace her powers.
In Adi Rule's
stunning new novel, The Hidden Twin, the girl with no name must finally
choose a name and a path for herself, drawing a line between myth and
history to prove herself more than a monster if she is to save both her
sister and her home. (summary from Goodreads)
All the oooohs and ahhhhs here, plus a lovely cover.
