Overview

All her life Wren has hoped for an adventure. Now she has one—with a kidnapped princess, a handsome prince, and a magician. What does it matter if the princess is only Tess, her best friend from the orphanage; if the prince is a youngest son with no chance of becoming king; and the magician is an apprentice?

Wren leads the other three over mountains and past killing spells, fighting battles along the way. But then she finds herself up against some shape-changing magic that may end her life as a human forever!

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-10-- Solidly constructed and divertingly revealed, the fantasy world Wren inhabits is full of magic, royalty, strange beasts, and engaging characters. From the first page when Tess announces to her friend Wren that she is a princess in hiding because of danger from evil Andreus, readers are enmeshed in the concerns of the kingdom of Meldrith. As Andreus' powerful magic ensnares Tess, Wren sets out to rescue her, accompanied an apprentice magician, and later by others. Magic is integral to the plot yet there are rules that are followed in a logical way throughout. If the characters seem less fleshed out than one would like, or if there is little reflection or growth along the way, fantasy adherents will mind very little. Since the ending does not tie all the threads together tidily, there is a chance that further tales of Meldrith will follow and that readers will then see greater depth of characters and of the realm that are really only introduced in this fast-paced, well-defined adventure. An absorbing and intriguing story. --Carol A. Edwards, Buckham Memorial Library, Faribault, MN
