with Jane Yolen

Viking 2013

The first in a middle grade trilogy in which a young elven prince is traded as a hostage to keep the two opposing fey kingdoms from war, and a midwife’s apprentice helps him escape.

“An entertaining, thrilling fantasy with a host of endearing characters.”

—Publishers Weekly

“Aspen and Snail are refreshingly atypical heroes.”

School Library Journal

“A rather thoughtful look at conflict, loyalty, and courage, and the discussion sparked here will hopefully continue with the proposed sequels.”
