From the Publisher:
Fifteen-year-old Dashti, after sacrificing her own freedom to follow her sixteen-year-old mistress, the Lady Saren, into exile, brings Saren safely to the lands of the man they both love where they are forced to hide their true identities as they vie for his attention. Reprint.
Annotation:
Beautifully reworking a Brothers Grimm fairytale, "Maid Maleen," Shannon Hale's lyrically told, intensely gripping story is set in a magical Asian kingdom. The tale follows the desperate fortunes of a humble maid named Dashti and her mistress, Lady Saren, when the pair is walled into a windowless tower by the lady's father after her refusal to marry a blood-thirsty ruler. Armed with food, candles, and a diary, Dashti tells the story of their entrapment as they cope with rats and isolation, as well as the welcome visits of a beloved beau, and the terrors of an evil one. Dashti's strength and cunning carry this young adult novel into the realm of fantastic. A School Library Journal Best Book of 2007.

Praise

"Dashti's voice is bright and true; Hale captures her sturdy personality, Saren's mental fragility and Khan Tegus's romantic warrior as vibrantly as she limns the stark terror of the Mongolian cold and the ugly spirit from which Khasar draws his strength." 9/15/2007

"Hale...delivers another winning fantasy, this time inventively fleshing out the obscure Grimm tale, Maid Maleen, though the expressive and earthy voice of Dashti, maid to Lady Saren." 9/24/2007

"Hale has created a richly imagined, mythical land something like medieval Mongolia, replete with magical song and touch therapy for spiritual or corporeal ailments, intuitive animals, and a sort of Faustian werewolf." 10/1/2007
