“A dark, forbidden forest, a powerful book, and an ancient deeply rooted fear of witchcraft set the stage for White's incredible debut.  Shunned by fellow villagers because of her mother's witchcraft conviction, Kara and her family struggle in every way imaginable.  One day, Kara enters Sordyr's Realm, the Thickety, from which no one has ever emerged unchanged.  There she discovers a powerful book that she believes belonged to her mother and that holds incredible and dangerous powers.  What follows is an amazing start to a great new series that will leave you thirsting for more!”—Bess Bleyaert, McLean & Eakin Booksellers, Petoskey, MI
