Horn Book Review

The Faeregine magic that has ruled Impyrium for over three thousand years is fading. Hazel may be the outcast of the triplet princesses, but her magic is strong and her mind sharp. Together with undercover spy Hob, Hazel must control her magic and protect the empire. Filled with creatures, mystery, and wonder, Neff's fast-paced series-starter will hook fantasy fans.
