Product Details


“Three cheers for a female protagonist who demonstrates strong leadership skills without losing the prospect of love or friendship.”—Kirkus

Praise for The Palace of Glass:
“Readers will appreciate following an astute heroine whose ultimate ambition . . . [is] to remake the entire cruel and corrupt world around her. A busy continuing saga filled with fantastical drama and feisty finagling.”—Kirkus

“The world of the Forbidden Library continues to deepen, adding new magical creatures, new relationships, and new adversaries to an already solid fantasy franchise founded on an appealing heroine, a deft plot, and gripping adventure sequences.”—Horn Book

“Centers on serious lessons about power and corruption but doesn’t skimp on fast and furious battles or small moments of humor. Alice remains a spirited, kind heroine with a noble goal and interesting, loyal characters to support her. More adventures are to come in this enjoyable fantasy series.”—Booklist Online

Praise for The Mad Apprentice:
“Wexler is an able builder of magical worlds and creatures, with labyrinths, an enchanted library, and a feisty, swashbuckling heroine at the center. A story rich in action and allegory—fantasy fans will want to hang on for what comes next.”—Kirkus

“Full of action and adventure, this tale will enthrall fans of the first novel.”—School Library Journal

“With an original concept, a brave and spirited heroine, and tantalizing incipient relationships among the apprentices (including Alice’s hot-and-cold friendship with Isaac, who tricked her in the first volume), Wexler’s series grows stronger by the book.”—Horn Book

Praise for The Forbidden Library:
“Working in the grand tradition of children’s fantasy, Wexler’s off to a promising start.”—Kirkus

“A charming, adventuresome fantasy from a promising new author.”—Booklist

“Reminiscent of Cornelia Funke’s Inkheart and Neil Gaiman’s Coraline.”—School Library Journal
