Rachel | 2 comments Blonde haired and fair skinned Princess escapes the castle grounds and finds herself traveling with a young boy and an older man. The man later reveals himself to be related to her (and uncle I think?) by rinsing a dye off the skin on his arm with red wine to reveal skin as hair as her own. She later uses the same plant to stain her own hair and skin so she won’t be recognized while traveling

Older book, 2005-before? Could be part of a trilogy maybe.

Rachel | 2 comments No, not quite. It was set in an older time. No modern technology. Had an almost “Septimus Heep” kind of feel.
