Once upon a time, three children and a little river dragon were the best of friends—until a promise was broken. Now they are almost grown up and barely speaking to one another. Of the four, it is Princess Aurelie who feels the loss the most. How can she prevent a war when she can't even make her friends get along? Heather Tomlinson creates a wonderfully realized faerie realm in this complex, intriguing story of star-crossed lovers coming of age in a complicated world, for readers 12 and up.
"Sharply realized characters abound in both magical and human form.... Vivid descriptions and intricate plot twists convey that most traditional element of all faerie stories—the misunderstandings between humans and the Fae despite the best intentions."—Kirkus Reviews
