As Princess Lissar reaches womanhood, it is clear to all the kingdom that in her breathtaking beauty she is the mirror image of her mother, the queen--but this seeming blessing forces her to flee from her father's wrath. With her loyal dog, Lissar discovers a world of magic where she finds the key to her own survival. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "McKinley's latest novel draws on a venerable fairy tale theme--the princess who flees an incestuous marriage to her father, survives adventures and perils, and ends by marrying a proper prince. This adult theme will raise eyebrows among those who have judged McKinley by Beauty or The Blue Sword, but readers will find the book well up to her standards nonetheless. The princess's situation and flight are developed with well-chosen details, characterization is superlative, and only for some readers may the somewhat moderate pacing present any problem. A must for large fantasy collections. ~--Roland Green"
