A classic origin-quest tale . . . brimming with a well-drawn, colorful supporting cast, a strong sense of place, and an enchanted forest with a personality to rival some of the best depictions of magical woods. School Library Journal, starred review


When Ned and his identical twin tumble from their raft into a raging river, only Ned survives. Villagers are convinced the wrong boy lived. Across the forest that borders Neds village, ?ine, the daughter of the Bandit King, is haunted by her mothers last words: The wrong boy will save your life and you will save his. When the Bandit King comes to steal the magic Neds mother, a witch, is meant to protect, ?ine and Ned meet. Can they trust each other enough to cross a dangerous enchanted forest and stop the war about to boil over between their two kingdoms?

Barnhill skillfully interweaves the stories of Ned, ?ine, Sister Witch and the stones . . . The classic fantasy elements are all there, richly reimagined, with a vivid setting, a page-turning adventure of a plot, and compelling, timeless themes. Kirkus Reviews, starred review
