"[A] heart-pounding adventure."A??Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Twelve-year-old Quicksilver lives as a thief in the sleepy town of Willow-on-the-River. Her only companions are her faithful dog and partner in crime, FoxA??and Sly Boots, the shy boy who lets her live in his attic when itA??s too cold to sleep on the rooftops. ItA??s a lonesome life, but Quicksilver is used to being alone. When you are alone, no one can hurt you. No one can abandon you.
Then one day Quicksilver discovers that she can perform magic. Real magic. The kind that isnA??t supposed to exist anymore. Magic is forbidden, but Quicksilver nevertheless wants to learn more. With real magic, she could become the greatest thief who ever lived. She could maybe even find her parents. What she does find, however, is much more complicated and surprising. . . .
Acclaimed author Claire LegrandA??s stunning and original novel explores the danger of lies and the power of truth, the strength found in friendship, and the value of loving and being loved . . . even if it means risking your heart. Full of magic, adventure, and an original and compelling cast of characters, Foxheart will appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman and Diana Wynne Jones.

"Billie Brown's narration of this horror-tinged tale of magic, time travel, and thievery will find an enthusiastic audience. The self-proclaimed best thief in all the Star Lands, Quicksilver, escapes her orphanage along with her dog, Fox. She joins a boy named Sly Boots and an older witch named Anastazia in an attempt to save their world from the nefarious Wolf-King. Brown voices the guileless Sly Boots with a childlike tone and Quicksilver's sharp temper with prickliness, giving their frequent bickering more punch. Brown manages the pacing by lingering on words and phrases for emotional effect and picking up her tempo as the action and intrigue mount. Listeners of all ages will fall in love with Fox, whose, affectionate canine voice truly shines. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
