While this may be the third book in Tales of Fontania series it is a stand-alone novel and can be totally enjoyed without having read the previous books.
Twelve year old Dorrity is the only child in magic-free Owl Town. She has been raised by her three brothers who set out on their yearly pilgrim but no sooner than they leave, they suddenly disappear. Convinced something terrible has happened Dorrity sets out on her own journey. What she faces, is magic and not of the good type. Dorrity is in danger from many folk. Hunted down and captured, held prisoner and taken on a roller coaster ride of adventure. On her journey she meets Metalboy and a wonderful friendship begins. But can he help her and can she help him? And just where are her brothers.
Dorrity is confronted with betrayal and half-truths. It is the discovery of a hidden and magical book The volume of possible endings on which she burns her fingers and begins a quest for the right possible ending. Told with humour and fast-paced, this is a winner.
I do love the french flaps and maps on the end ages. Quality production.
