"Reminiscent of Philip Pullman's Tin Princess (1994) in setting, and also in being clever, quick-paced and well stocked with Royals, Boie's U.S. debut carries a full load of reader appeal. (Fiction. 10-13)"
Boie shows why she's such a popular novelist in Germany, with a tale so engaging that readers will shrug off the contrivances she needs to bring it all off.
