Read in January, 2007

Imagine: a 6th grader who serendipitously finds THE WINTER PRINCE by Elizabeth Wein in her school library, reads it, then doesn't let anyone else take it out again until eighth grade graduation when she forcibly has to give the book back. Now imagine a 25 year old who discovers four companion books to the novel. Commence freak-out.

Wein brings her twist on the King Arthur story out of Arthurian Legend and into a history many YA novels don't broach - what we now call Ethiopia, and her imagined alliances between the countries. This complex story of political and family intrigue may prove intimidating for some young readers, but put it on your shelf, dag nab it! It's a great story.
