Product Details


“Including just enough details of setting and character to give her story texture, Winthrop keeps it moving with some humor . . . Accessible, well told, and entertaining.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Likable characters, swashbuckling heroics and goofy culture clashes . . . charms aplenty.”—Publishers Weekly

“This well-crafted story is a beautifully blended mixture of fantasy and adventure, with a forceful and thoughtful underlying theme of courage.
