You'll love Bryony... she can think for herself and she has a strong sense of what's right and wrong... Once I got into the story I found myself carrying the book around with me and reading a little more at any opportunity. It's exciting, with great pace and dramatic tension which had me on the edge of the chair.Sue Magee, TheBookbag.com
From the Back Cover
Orphaned young, Bryony is brought up in the sheltered community of an abbey. When she turns 14, she is sent to join her cousin, the King of Athlandia, at Court, and the only family she knows. However, she soon learns that the King is not as benevolent as she thought and things in the country are not quite as they seem. When an event occurs that changes her perception of her family, Bryony has to decide where her loyalty and friendships lie.
