From the author of the beloved Royal Wizard of Yurt series, the first book in a brand-new series.
Antonia is the daughter of the head of institutionalized wizardry, and she wants nothing more--or so she thinks at fourteen--than to grow up to be a wizard too: the first woman wizard. But then she discovers that her mother has all sorts of unexpected female cousins who intend her to come be a witch with them, at the same time as she realizes that a lot of the male wizards are highly opposed to letting a mere girl learn their arcane secrets...
As she tries to find her own way, she hears the legend of the Starlight Raven, a bird rejected by its own kind because it does not fit in anywhere, whose appearance is a marker either of doom or of unexpected triumph.

Imaginative and the veiw point of a teenage witch becoming a accomplished wizard in spite of old fashioned teachers who didn't think it would happen. The mystery of who is causing the dangerous problems keeps you guessing who it is, and keeps you reading untill the end.
