Publisher's Summary

A winner of the Mark Twain Award, Janet Lee Carey pens a richly imagined tale of princesses and dragons. On Wilde Island, Rosalind and her mother live their lives in exile, awaiting the time they can reclaim their rightful place on the throne. And there is reason to hope - a 600-year-old prophesy has decreed that they will do just that. But little do they know that their destinies hinge on Rosalind's amazing, shameful secret: beneath her gold gloves, the fourth finger of her left hand is in truth a dragon's claw.

Get ready to be whisked away!

I bought this book because I was craving something else narrated by Bianca Amato. I do not usually choose fantasy stories, but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Ms. Amato's voice has such power, such emotion. I loved this book in audio, and highly recommend it.

Something different is always good

Ms. Carey has crafted a wonderful tale told from a fresh perspective. There are such interesting characters within this tale. A fascinating departure from the norm. I did not know what to expect but, I thought I was in for the conveyor belt of one of the numerous re-hashings of Arthuian tales with a dragon, a wizard, some knights, etc etc. I just purchased this as a mindless diversion for a long plane flight.

I was very pleasently suprised!

A new story line for this legend is not so easy to come by. Ms. Carey has crafted something new, with charcters and an adventure that held your interest and a storyline that finishes one part of the tale nicely but, leaves you waiting eagerly the next installment.

If you are looking for a truly imaginative and entertaining branch of the Pendragon legend it is here your search will end. I actually listened to this twice and was just as entertained the second time as the first. Bravo and thanks for a truly new tale. Now hurry up and publish the next one!
