Starred Review, School Library Journal, August 2011:
“Fantasy and historical fiction blend meticulously in this richly imaginative novel…The combination of imagination, thorough research, and evocative prose renders this an exceptional read that will not relinquish readers from its grasp. Happily, a sequel is already planned. This is Lovric’s first contribution to literature for the young, and it is a gem.”
