    (back cover)  "So, you're done with all this now, right?" Mike said. He said it normal, like it wasn't the most outrageous thing I'd heard all summer.  "Done with this?  Mike, something big is going on.  She knows somethings- didn't you see?  She was about to tell us."He burned through a yellow light.  "Dude, five minutes ago you were tied up in a basement with a madman and a crowbar.  What's next?""Since when are you the careful one?  You were telling me I was nuts to think the guy was murdered.  Now I'm finally getting somewhere.""Yeah, well-""They shot him in the chest five times.  Nobody cares but me and Tina.""Okay, okay.  You're a man on a mission. Chill."  In the uneasy silence, Mike made a fist and admired his wounds.  "You should know, though, I'm only human.  I can only save you so many times."

    Intriguing characters, fine plotting, and a richly worked narrative carry the reader into Lucinda’s vaguely medieval world. Orphaned as a small child when her wealthy parents were killed in a carriage accident, Lucinda has grown to the age of 15 as the maidservant in her goldsmith uncle’s home, suffering abuse at the hands of his wife. Life changes quickly for Lucinda after her uncle dies when she attempts to complete an errand to return a strange glowing stone to a woman locally known as the Amaranth Witch. A street thief, the local Prince Charming, a goat with the manners of a loving dog, and an evil chief justice are among the characters who complicate and enrich Lucinda’s life as she discovers her own past and the otherworldliness of Beryl, the amaranth lady. Tamora Pierce fans will particularly appreciate Berry’s smoothly rendered first novel, where magic and historically accurate courtly rites are balanced with Lucinda’s maturing sense of independence, fate, and self.
