Overview

12-year-old Lilah asks, Why are the kingdom's magic spells fading? But her uncle the king only wants a stronger army. Why are the kids outside the palace gates ragged and hungry?

But the king keeps raising taxes. Her older brother Peitar, the king's heir, spends more time writing mysterious letters than talking to her. And her father just wants her to learn court manners.

Since everyone is ignoring her, Lilah disguises herself and slips over the walls to befriend those ragged kids. She learns that revolution is fermenting, led by the charismatic young commoner Derek. And Lilah is shocked to learn that her scholarly brother is allied with Derek.

The revolution ignites into chaos and violence. Lilah and her friends are determined to help however they can. But what can four kids do? Become spies, of course! Chases and disguises, captures and trials lead to a wild climax, with Lilah right in the middle.

First published by Viking, and a finalist for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award, this young adult fantasy has been completely revised for the Book View Cafe edition.

About the Author

Sherwood Smith has been trying to trade biographies with someone rich, gorgeous, and charismatic, but until then has to stick with the, uh, less glamorous truth: she studied in Europe before earning a masters in history, afterward working as a governess, a bartender, and an electrical supply verifier—not all at the same time—until she capped quotations of "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" by a screenwriter, who promptly offered her a job. She wore various hats in the film industry before she turned to writing books.

To date she’s published over forty books, one of which was an Anne Lindbergh Honor Book; she’s twice been a finalist for the Mythopoeic Fantasy Award and once a Nebula finalist.
