Horn Book Review

The discovery of a "telling dart," which reveals its message only to Ariel, begins a dangerous quest. Accompanied by her friend Zeke, Ariel learns of her role in "crafting the future" of her sparsely populated postwar fantasy world. The frequently dark story spares no one and will keep readers guessing with plot twists and surprising character loyalties. (c) Copyright 2010.
