Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Darkness falls so quickly in Howland that the people there have no word for evening. One minute the sky is light, the next minute it is black. But darkness comes in other forms, too, and for thirteen-year-old Annie, the misery she endures in her Uncles household makes the black of night seem almost soothing. When Annie escapes, her route takes her first to a dangerous mine where a precious stone is being stolen by an enemy of the king, and later to the kings own halls, where a figure from Annies past makes a startling appearance. All the while, reported sightings of kinderstalk— mysterious, wolf-like creatures that prowl Howlands dark forests—grow more frequent. Eloquent, suspenseful, and imbued with fairy-tale motifs found in The Brothers Grimm, this is a riveting coming-of-age story of a girl who must learn to trust her instincts if shes to lead the people she is destined to rule.

Synopsis:

Eloquent, suspenseful, and imbued with classic fairy-tale motifs, this riveting coming-of-age story presents a girl who must learn to trust her instincts if she's to leave the people she is destined to rule and prevent a war.

Beautifully written book that has left me ready and impatient for a sequel. Beware the kinderstalk! I loved the main character, and loved those who she encountered along the way and look forward to knowing more about them in the next book! Please?
