“A traditional premise is transformed into a graceful meditation on the ramifications of loyalty, duty and purpose… Astonishing and inspiring.”

-Kirkus (starred review)

“Fans of Megan Whalen Turner’s “Attolia” books will be drawn to similar hidden political currents within the court, and fans of Kristin Cashore’s Graceling will wholeheartedly embrace Isabel as a reluctant warrior heroine treading in unfamiliar waters of the heart.”

– School Library Journal

“An unusual, suspenseful fantasy that is propelled by well-placed clues.”

– ALA Booklist
