Overview

  • For years, gentle commoner Nalyn has stood in for Nydia, the true duchess of
    Mathenia. Now her masquerade has led her to greater dangers than she ever imagined. Forced to leave the island paradise of Eriden to the forces of
    Felltower, Nalyn and crew escape the continent of Ar. Instead of gaining allies,
    though, they find only temporary shelter with the elves of Shielliniath, and nothing but false promise from the denizens of Maledon. Hope may yet be found across the mountains in the land of Lesazon, but can they reach it in time, and will it be enough?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
The third volume of this anime-inspired fantasy finds commoner Nalyn impersonating the arrogant Grand Duchess Nydia and negotiating for foreign troops to help her defend her homeland, Mathenia. Nalyn travels with her advisers, a stork-like "tridactylian" and a dolphin; a tiny elf named Nimn; and an army made up partly of humans, partly of chipper koala-like creatures. The group forms a happy, if motley, family for the stand-in ruler. Espinosa (The Courageous Princess) uses his robust imagination and impressive attention to artistic detail to envision and portray the countries beyond Mathenia, showing the different ways they developed due to their misuse of technology and abuse of the natural world. Espinosa's dialogue and comic timing endear his characters to readers, and his art is gorgeous. The plot is nicely paced, and the character details come together to make a great story. This should be a hit with manga and fantasy lovers, especially 'tween girls. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
