From the very beginning it was all Toad's fault. A blundering, quick-talking thief, he was the one who cut a deal with the dangerous Edward P. Owl: track down the ingredients to the Seeking Solution, or else. Twenty-five thousand gorents, he'd said to her. That was all it took for Melena, a lonely orphan with a knack for potions, to pack her bags and join in on the quest.

From the majestic forest of Holly-Harp Wood to the labyrinth caves of Dunthur to the frigid waters of the Blackens, they search for Owl's ingredients. Toad and Melena must face sea dragons, cave monsters, birds as large as wagons, kidnappers, and thieves - so many thieves. Toad's in it to save his head - cross Owl and start digging your own grave. Melena's in it to get paid so she can start a new life, one that includes her missing brother.

But you really can't trust thieves.

Received for an honest review. This was a fun read! There was so much heart and adventure! There were so many aspects of this story that felt like a life lesson and yet it was filled with so much fun and great characters. As I was reading this story I kept thinking how great this would be for young adults. There were aspects that were very fairy-tale like and other parts that were very real and reflected the realities of life. Toad and Melena made a great team. They were perfect opposites and perfectly complimentary of each other. I liked their friendship and the way they were determined to fulfill this quest together. Although books like these are sometimes thought of as for young people, I definitely enjoyed it and found it very engaging
