This is the best fantasy book I have read this summer. I love Diane Stanley's work so that is why I picked up the book.
Molly is a scullery maid with a unique gift that she keeps hidden in fear of being persecuted or thought crazy (like her mother). She is elevated to silver polisher and is put in charge of a silver bowl that draws her in and clears up the mystery of why so many evil things befall the royal family she serves. Her friend Tobias tries to help her protect Prince Alaric, a more-than-slightly spoiled but still likable character.
I love the way Stanley weaves all the pieces together with her description and character development.

Hope to hear more about Molly!
