Gwenda BondCatherynne M. Valente's first three novels earned her a reputation as a bold, skillful writer. Her latest, The Orphan's Tales, reaffirms that early acclaim. A young girl living secretly in a sultan's palace garden, her eyes inexplicably "inked" with an epic's worth of stories, narrates them to a young prince who comes upon her by chance and quickly joins the reader in falling under the spell of teller and tales alike.
