In this stirring and romantic fantasy novel from the Newbery Honor author of Ella Enchanted, a noble girl learns that her parents were of the despised underclass and she must raise a rebellion on behalf of her people. A prequel to the bestselling novel, The Two Princesses of Bamarre.

Peregrine strives to live up to the ideal of her people, the Latki—and to impress her parents: affectionate Lord Tove, who despises only the Bamarre, and stern Lady Klausine. Perry runs the fastest, speaks her mind, and doesn’t give much thought to the castle’s Bamarre servants, whom she knows to be weak and cowardly.

But just as she’s about to join her father on the front lines, she is visited by the fairy Halina, who reveals that Perry isn’t Latki-born. She is Bamarre. The fairy issues a daunting challenge: against the Lakti power, Perry must free her people from tyranny.

In this compelling and thought-provoking fantasy set in the world of The Two Princesses of Bamarre, Newbery Honor-winning author Gail Carson Levine introduces a spirited heroine who must overcome deeply-rooted prejudice—including her own—to heal her broken country.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Narrator January LaVoy captures young Peregrine’s conflict over which of two societies she belongs to…LaVoy balances much drama in this audio…[and] shifts easily between all of the characters, who include both genders and various ages. Most noteworthy are her depictions of the contrasts between peoples, in particular, the deference and discouragement of the downtrodden Bamarre versus the haughtiness of the Lakti. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

    Publishers Weekly
