Character Profiles & Giveaway with Sarah Fine, author of The Impostor Queen

 Let me just start by saying that, if Sarah Fine's The Impostor Queen, isn't already on your 2016 must-read list, it needs to be. I'm extremely picky when it comes to Young Adult fantasy, so the fact that I was head over heels for this novel after only a handful of pages says a lot! I love that Sarah Fine's characters are complex and that their secrets and insecurities felt warranted.

Below, author Sarah Fine has shared character profiles of the novel's main character, Elli, and her faithful servant, Mim. Plus your chance to win an arc of The Impostor Queen. Enjoy!

About the Book
The elders chose Elli to be queen, but they chose wrong in this beautifully crafted novel in the tradition of Kristin Cashore and Victoria Aveyard.

Sixteen-year-old Elli was a small child when the Elders of Kupari chose her to succeed the Valtia, the queen who wields infinitely powerful ice and fire magic. Since then, Elli has lived in the temple, surrounded by luxury and tutored by priests, as she prepares for the day when the Valtia perishes and the magic finds a new home in her. Elli is destined to be the most powerful Valtia to ever rule.

But when the queen dies defending the kingdom from invading warriors, the magic doesn’t enter Elli. It’s nowhere to be found.

Disgraced, Elli flees to the outlands, the home of banished criminals—some who would love to see the temple burn with all its priests inside. As she finds her footing in this new world, Elli uncovers devastating new information about the Kupari magic, those who wield it, and the prophecy that foretold her destiny. Torn between the love she has for her people and her growing loyalty to the banished, Elli struggles to understand the true role she was meant to play. But as war looms, she must align with the right side—before the kingdom and its magic are completely destroyed.
