ALONE IN A foreign land, Aly will need both her father’s wit and her mother’s courage to navigate a royal court rife with political intrigue and murderous conspiracy.
“Aly arrives fully formed, a snarky, talented uber-heroine. Cameos of old favorites complement a rich cast of new characters. Aly’s difficulty with the complexity of colonialism adds surprising, welcome depth.”—Kirkus Reviews
