Horn Book Review

Princess Wilhelmina is a refugee of the war that shattered her kingdom. Now an illegal magic-user and spy, Wil is determined to reclaim her throne--if she isn't destroyed first by the anti-magic vigilante Black Knife, or by wraiths, the toxic byproduct of magic-use ravaging the land. A fast-paced, action-packed fantasy driven by a dilemma that recalls the urgency of climate change. (c) Copyright 2015. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
