Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[Teppler's books are] the kind that wrap you in their embrace, that take over your life, that make the world disappear".-- "Voice Literary Supplement".

Atop a twisting, canyon-climbing road, a witch lurks in a fortress built strong to keep out dragons and ogres. In another part of the countryside, a young orphan is maturing into a beautiful woman in the enchanted village that is her home. Somewhere nearby, a young man is seeking adventure after running away from his family's small farm. Suddenly a strange and terrible prophecy sets off a chain of events that will bring these three together in the heroic, romantic, and thrilling tale of an age-old battle.

"Rich and compellingly readable. . .this may become a classic in the field. . .Like [C.S. Lewis, Ursula K Le Guin, and J.R.R Tolkein], Teppler takes the traditional icons of a fantasy, restores their resonance, and makes them her own".-- "Star Tribune", Minneapolis
