Razo hopped up and down, but he could see only backs of heads. Soldiers and courtiers lined the grand hall, craned their necks, stood on toes. And everyone was taller than him. (from the first line)
Newbery Honor-winning and "New York Times"-bestselling author Hale returns to the intrigue and magic of Bayern, first introduced in her critically acclaimed novel "The Goose Girl," in this latest novel.
From the Publisher:
Despite his shortcomings as the shortest and slowest soldier in the group, Razo's patience and unique thinking skills come in handy when the king sends his soldiers out on an important peace-keeping mission that will affect everyone he knows and loves. Reprint.
Annotation:
The sequel to GOOSE GIRL and ENNA BURNING finds the diminutive but exceedingly friendly soldier Razo accompanying a special group of Bayern soldiers to make peace with their enemies, the Tirans. Once there, he must keep the peace through his impressive abilities to get along with people, while at the same time attempt to discover who's responsible for a series of murders that threaten the entire peace process. Magic, fire, and love each have a share in this gripping, well-told story.

Praise

"Hale makes profound statements about war and peace, friends and strangers, men and women and all the different kinds of battle. Her language glimmers like firelight, like sunshine on water as she propels readers along a river of wonderful writing to the tumultuous and heart-tugging climax." 08/15/2006

"This novel will be a special treat for readers of Hale's other two companion books, but it also stands on its own as a unique and tender coming-of-age story." 09/04/2006

"As in the earlier novels, Hale's impeccable writing style and dedication to detail result in a rich, fully developed world, right down to the salty pungency of the Tiran olives and the vibrancy of the Bayern clothing..." 11/01/2006

"The expertly chosen, often poetic details set and pace the story, and the fully drawn characters, whose dialogue crackles with wit, will point readers to the underlying themes of cultural prejudice and the corruption of power that touch on contemporary debates." 9/15/2006
