Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

A thrilling debut novel where fantasy and science fiction meet, dragons aren't as innocent as they look, and nothing is quite what it seems. <br> <br> Anne has spent most of her thirteen years dreaming of the day she and her best friend Penelope will finally leave Saint Lupin's Institute for Perpetually Wicked and Hideously Unattractive Children. When the big day arrives, a series of very curious happenings lead to Anne being charged with an epic quest. Anne, Penelope, and new questing partner Hiro have only days to travel to strange new locales, solve myriad riddles, and triumph over monstrous foes--or face the horrible consequences.<br> <br> Packed with action, humor, and endless heart, this debut novel marks the first volume in an irresistible and original fantasy series.

"In a magickal world of floating tiers, mischievous dragons, and endless bureaucracy, Anne and her friends embark on a Rightful Heir Quest to claim her place in the Hierarchy and escape horrible consequences"-- Provided by publisher.

Horn Book Review

After escaping from a bleak orphanage with the evil matron in hot pursuit, thirteen-year-old Anne ends up at a "quest academy" and, along with friend Penelope and young magician Hiro, partakes in a game-like, high-stakes quest. Despite flat characters, the story is action-packed, and Anne's world and its fantastic creatures are well conceived. A "Secret Epilogue" hints at a new quest to come. (c) Copyright 2017.
