Eleven-year-old Nell has done the unthinkable -- she has completed the quest to meet the Imperial Wizard, something no girl in her land of Eldearth has ever accomplished. Now, she may be able to become the next Imperial Wizard. But there is still much standing in her way. She has always thought that she was the only child and heir of her father, the King of Xandria, one of the kingdoms of Eldearth. But she learns she has a twin brother, Owen, who was hidden away at birth. Now her father refuses to even consider granting her request to train as Imperial Wizard -- he wants his newfound son to be trained instead. Nell resents that Owen has the chance just because he is a boy. Once again, Nell must set out on her own to prove her worth and help her kingdom.

Readers who enjoyed the first fantasy adventure featuring Nell won't want to miss this continuation of her story. Nell is a very likable character that will appeal especially to young girls who enjoy reading about strong and determined heroines who defy the odds.
