Empress in Disguise: Empress in Disguise Book 1
To save her family, one girl will sacrifice her very identity.
Living in poverty in the shadow of the Forbidden City, Daiyu never imagined that the life of the emperor would impact her own.
But a chance meeting with a girl who looks exactly like her changes everything.
Daiyu’s family is offered enough money to support them for life if she only agrees to take the stranger’s place at the emperor’s selection for new consorts. In order to pull off the ruse, Daiyu must abandon everything she ever knew and become a completely different person, a person she despises. And if she fails, if she is discovered, she will be guilty of treason and put to death.
Daiyu cannot allow her family to suffer if it is within her power to save them, so she strikes the deadly bargain. But living within the Forbidden City is even more dangerous than she imagined…
In this incredible retelling of The Princess and the Pauper, based on true events, authors Zoey Gong and Amanda Roberts bring to life the opulent and dangerous world of imperial consorts trapped within the great red walls of the Forbidden City.

At the center of power and privilege, Daiyu is now in more danger than she ever imagined. No longer able to hide among the countless palace ladies, as empress, Daiyu cannot escape the jealousy and scheming of the other women who would do anything to take her place.
But that is not the only danger Daiyu faces.
Foreign enemies besiege Peking, sacking the city and forcing the imperial family to flee for their lives. War changes everything.
With enemies lurking in every corner, Daiyu, the girl from the streets, must step into a role she was never born to play.
All of China depends on it.

After being banished to a remote abbey, Daiyu thinks the machinations of the inner court can no longer hurt her. But she is wrong. A ghost from the past emerges and threatens everything Daiyu has worked so hard to build for herself.

Daiyu discovers that she has the power to choose her future, but both futures carry a risk she is not sure she has the strength to face.
But underneath it all is a love so powerful, Daiyu cannot walk away.
The future of a dynasty rests with her…
