Publisher's Summary

Before she was a prisoner in Marianne's crystal mines or just another face among the multitudes in the city of Seven Skies, Maddy had a different name and everything she could want - governesses, gowns, and gold to fill her pockets. And though she wasn't the son her father had wanted, it was inevitable that one day, she would inherit his title.

But Maddy's predictable world is turned upside down when an extraordinary servant girl challenges everything she's ever known. There's a wider world beyond the comfortable confines of her castle, full of wonder and magic, and Maddy finds that the one thing she doesn't have is the only thing she really needs.

Fantastic!

I think this may be my favorite Dragon's Brood Tale yet! Excellent world building and character development that makes me want the next full-length novel that much more! Reay Kaplan outdid herself yet again with the wonderful narration. I will definitely be listening to this again!

Another amazing entry in the Dragonsbrood Cycle!

In the interest of full disclosure, I've been friends with Josh de Lioncourt for over 20 years. However, rather than influencing me to heap vast quantities of overenthusiastic praise, that fact can influence me to be more critical of his work, in an effort to avoid falling into the "friend trap." I tell you this so that when I say "Treasures and Trinkets" is possibly his best work yet, you will not dismiss that out of hand. This is one of those stories that grabs hold of the reader's imagination and refuses to let go, even long after the story is finished. The characters leapt off the page (or in this case, out of my earbuds) and into my heart. I can only hope we don't have to wait too terribly long for more stories involving Maddie and Lessa. There are things I want to say, but I won't; I hate reviews that contain spoilers. But they're all good things. I can't recommend this story highly enough, whether you've read the books of the Dragonsbrood Cycle or not. I promise you, though, that if you haven't, by the time you finish this story, you'll _want to read the rest of the series! You'll _need to read the rest of the series! ... Pardon me; my passion provoked a bit of Jack Nicholson to come out.) Seriously, give this a listen or a read. Or both! You'll be glad you did.
