Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Launching a series, this briskly paced though somewhat muddled fantasy centers on Agnes, an 11-year-old tomboy who lives in a Nova Scotia village with her twin brothers and widowed fisherman father. The simplicity of her life is shattered one night when Octavia, a new babysitter, gives Agnes a box of magical salt crystals that, when scattered, create a trapdoor leading to a castle floating in the ocean. There Agnes learns that Octavia is actually the Queen of the Pacific Ocean, one of the Guardians of Nature who serve in the Ancient Realm; Octavia recruits Agnes to join their ranks as Princess of the Bering Sea. Readers may have to work a bit to sort out Bahn's complex plotting, as Agnes meets two rogue Guardians (kings of mountain ranges) who both want to destroy nature for different reasons. Agnes joins forces with another Guardian to thwart one king's plan to contaminate the Earth's rivers, successfully completing her first mission as princess. Though the roles of some of the novel's many ancillary characters are murky, Agnes is a well-drawn, down-to-earth heroine with a sharp sense of humor. Ages 6–12.

"Nature acts as a secret source of magic and mayhem." "Bahn presents a straightforward fantasy story plenty capable of engaging young readers, especially those with limited attention spans."
Brown Publishing Networks - Marie Brown
“Sure to capture the imagination of lower and middle-school readers.”
— Marie Brown, President and CEO of Brown Publishing Network
School Teacher - Susie Weber
“A bored girl and a misled boy are pitted against each other in a fearsome world of tempestuous waters, wicked cold, and cruel fires; nature’s powers must be harnessed by a dogged eleven-year-old fisherman’s daughter, Agnes, in order to unveil the spectacular beauty and hope that lives within both nature and humankind. Bahn’s poetic and emphatic prose makes this imaginary and exciting epic a literary accomplishment.”
— Susie Weber, English Teacher
School Teacher - Victoria Hubler
“Ms. Bahn’s book is a fabulous, engaging story for young people and adults alike. Readers will revel in Agnes’s courage as she discovers her own inner strength and battles to save the natural world. I will most definitely share this book with my class of third, fourth, and fifth graders and am looking forward to more from Ms. Bahn in the near future.”
— Victoria Hubler, Oregon Public School Teacher, Corbett Schools
