Magicborn by Peter Bunzl
The Curse is changed. You'll never know. The truth is lost. The lie will grow. The year is 1726 and the Royal Sorcerer of England is on the hunt for those who are magicborn.
When Tempest is captured after accidentally unleashing a power she didn't know she had, she is taken to Kensington Palace alongside a boy like her, Peter. Trapped, Tempest and Peter find their magic flickering to life - and with it, long-buried memories. For they are the lost prince and princess of Fairyland, bound by a deadly curse and now the fairies are coming to get them. A battle is building - one only they can end. But who will survive?
