Product Details


“Unique and gripping.”—Tamora Pierce

“Marr’s splashy offering is packed full of an extensive array of beloved fantasy tropes ranging from mystical creatures like gargoyles and kelpies to a magical boarding school, alchemists, thieves, and portals to other worlds. . . . A crowd pleaser . . . fast-paced chapters, each narrated from a different point of view. . . . This will be popular with a wide swath of readers. . . . A veritable buffet of fantasy conventions.”—Kirkus Reviews

“In narration that shifts focalization among the characters, Marr slowly and lovingly characterizes her magical world and its cast, giving each character a strong backstory and sprinkling in details that will become important later. Through the perspective of the gargoyle Rupert, this fantasy novel has a sweet lesson as well: that little acts are ‘ripples’ that can lead to great positive change, offering young readers hope that they can make their own impact.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Filled with ley lines and animate gargoyles, Marr’s engaging fantasy is primed for magic and mystery. . . . Promising characters and intrigue-laced history.”—Publishers Weekly
