Selected by Indie Booksellers for the Fall 2008 Kids' List
“Exquisitely written in the manner of the most powerful and romantic of all fairy tales, yet wholly original. The chalice binds the land with magic, words, and honey, and McKinley binds her words with insight, whimsy, and beauty. This is my favorite novel of the year, from one of our finest storytellers.”
-- Melissa Posten, Children's Book World, Haverford, PA


Description

Beekeeper Marisol has been chosen as the new Chalice, destined to stand beside the Master and mix the ceremonial brews that hold the Willowlands together. But the relationship between Chalice and Master has always been tumultuous, and the new Master is unlike any before him.
