This extraordinary debut weaves magic and heroism into a classic tale of good and evil, and features an unforgettable heroine. Twelve-year-old Alexa Daley is spending another summer in the walled town of Bridewell. This year, she's determined to solve the mystery of what lies beyond the walls.
From the Publisher:
While spending yet another summer inside the walled town of Bridewell, twelve-year-old Alexa Daley decides to research the mysterious rumors of the evil that lurks outside the town in the Dark Hills and, despite her doubts, uncovers something that is worse than she could have ever imagined.
Annotation:
Bright, resourceful 12-year-old Alexa Daley deeply enjoys her summers in the county seat of Bridewell. Cherished by her father, the mayor of their home town, Lathbury, she spends her time curled up reading in the enormous library. Like all city-dwellers in the realm of Elyon, she lives within impenetrable walls that surround the cities and roads leading to them. While no one seems to be sure what they are being protected from, myths and rumors hint at an unnamed, shadowy adversary that threatens them all. When Alexa manages to breach the walls, she hurtles into a perilous adventure that will not only unlock the mysteries of the land, but expose unspeakable danger. The first title in a trilogy.
