A gorgeous fantasy that evokes the best of Miyazaki, Lewis and Del Toro...

This third stand-alone novel by Frederic S. Durbin (after Dragonfly and The Star Shard) is a beautifully vivid fantasy, set in an unspecified nation against the backdrop of a world at war. While it calls to mind such genre masterworks as Hayao Miyazaki's Nausicaa, C.S. Lewis's Narnia series and Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, Durbin's voice remains unique. This is a haunting tale of a young narrator's coming-of-age, and the riddle at the story's heart is deeply compelling.
