Orphaned at age five, Lucinda, now fifteen, stands with courage against the man who took everything from her, aided by a thief, a clever goat, and a mysterious woman called the Witch of Amaranth, while the prince she knew as a child prepares to marry, unaware that he, too, is in danger.

  1. I loved this book its amazing!

  2. i really like this book! I loved how they used creative and describing words!

  3. This is definitely a good book, and like how it's not set in modern times. However, the book has some Sci-Fi elements that come in to fast to be delveloped well and leave you wondering "What???". Overall though, it has a great plot line and leaves you wanting more.
