Publisher's Summary

Anna Marshal is regent of the kingdom of Defalk only a few months after a sorcerer pulled her from her boring life as a music teacher in Ames, Iowa, to the world of Erde. With her ability and her integrity, she saved Defalk from invasion and became its regent; now she must defend it against the greedy rulers of neighboring kingdoms who see a weakened state and a possible opportunity.

I've loved this series ever since high school.

This was amazing! Fantasy with realistic feminist values!! I loved every minute of it!! I'm glad I actually have had a chance to finish this book!! Cause I started it I middle school and now 20 years later I love it for far deeper reasons.

Great story

I love the story and world. The main character is a bit whinny and swears sometimes but the plot more than makes up for it.
