Sisters of the Snake by Sarena & Sasha Nanua

A lost princess. A dark puppet master. And a race against time—before all is lost.

Princess Rani longs for a chance to escape her gilded cage and prove herself. Ria is a street urchin, stealing just to keep herself alive.

When these two lives collide, everything turns on its head: because Ria and Rani, orphan and royal, are unmistakably identical.

A deal is struck to switch places—but danger lurks in both worlds, and to save their home, thief and princess must work together. Or watch it all fall into ruin.

Deadly magic, hidden temples, and dark prophecies: Sisters of the Snake is an action-packed, immersive fantasy that will thrill fans of The Crown’s Game and The Tiger at Midnight.

This is one of my Owlcrate books. I cancelled my subscription this year so I could spend time getting caught up reading those I received last year.

With Sisters of the Snake I love that the authors are twins and that twins are central in this book - the snakes not so much. But I have to say by the end these slithering creatures grew on me.

Picture The Parent Trap in a fantasy realm, one a princess and the other an orphaned street thief. The story was unique, entertaining with nice world building. Each chapter alternated between Rani and Ria POV, flowing at a nice pace. Though fantasy isn't really my thing I have enjoyed the books I received from Owlcrate.  The stories leave me with something to walk away with and expand my reading horizon. This book was rounded out nicely with a cast of characters that enhanced the story, which was mysterious, magical and a pleasure to read.

This book comes in just over 500 pages, a nice size to really get to know the characters, get a lay of the land, so to speak and to also prepare for the sequel. Daughters of the Dawn releases 9/06/22

This book was part of my 2022 Reading Off My Shelf Challenger (#25)
