Staff Reviews

If the very title makes your heart beat a little faster, then you are one of the Ravaged and this book is for you. The outline is familiar, even classic: a human child finds herself in the land of Fairy with a quest, some tools, a few friends, and a set of impossible odds to conquer. This author can write the story inside out and backwards, somehow both satisfying and confounding your expectations. In my mind I am holding this book to my chest and moaning for the sequel.

"This is a kind of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by way of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland--it's the sort of book one doesn't want to end." --Publisher's Weekly, starred review

September is a girl who longs for adventure. When she is invited to Fairyland by a Green Wind and a Leopard, well, of course she accepts. (Mightn't you?) But Fairyland is in turmoil, and it will take one twelve-year-old girl, a book-loving dragon, and a strange and almost human boy named Saturday to vanquish an evil Marquess and restore order.
