A Sonderbooks’ Stand-out of 2003: #3, Young Adult Fantasy
Here’s a beautiful and deeply satisfying fantasy story. I read this on the train to Bremen, and it helped make the trip a wonderful journey.
Peri hates the sea. It took her father, and that took her mother’s heart. So she decides to use the magic she learned from an old woman to hex the sea.
After her hex, strange things begin to happen. She meets the king’s son and sees that his heart is also lost to the sea. A sea dragon appears and the townsfolk covet its long, thick golden chain. They call a magician to unlock the chain so they can get its treasure. After that, Peri learns that the sea dragon was more than he appeared, and she can help to set things right.
This book will capture your imagination and pull you into a world of once upon a time.
