Publisher's Summary

A missing princess. A city under siege. A compendium of the blackest sorcery.

The Grand Mage of Caragol is the most dangerous man in the realm, so when Kerstin steals his spell book right out of his tower, she lights up a firestorm of trouble.

An army sweeps through the city of Klomm, but countless lives are a petty sum for such great power. With the spell book, Kerstin can deal with the villainous Count Olgris and the unspeakable horrors conjured by the Grand Mage. But she is dancing on a spider's thread.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the kingdom, 15-year-old Hinkle walks a tightrope of her own, spinning a web of dangerous lies around her new master, Sir Gilkrist of Lothellae.

When Sir Gilkrist’s quest brings them to Klomm, she discovers the secrets she’s been hiding are darker than she ever imagined. A diabolical scheme threatens to engulf the world in shadow and blood - and it has everything to do with her Aunt Kerstin.

But can Sir Gilkrist help her...or will he devise a dark purpose of his own?

Fairy Tale meets Adventure Tale

This was a really fun read. It was a mix between a classic fairy tale and an adventurous tale. The story switches between different points of view which is something I enjoy, and the characters had depth and kept you intrigued. The scenes were portrayed vividly and the story had a nice flow. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.

Excitement and intrigue abounds

I received this audiobook at my request for an unbiased review.

From the beginning to the end I was entertained and enthralled. The heroine is pathetically likable. Her trials will have gritting you teeth in anger and suspense. Overall I thought this was an original storyline and wonderful start to the series.

The narrator was great! Her accents and tones were spot on. Her character voices were distinctive and recognizable.

Thanks for the opportunity to review your book!!
