Description

A thrilling debut novel where fantasy and science fiction meet, dragons aren't as innocent as they look, and nothing is quite what it seems. Anne has spent most of her thirteen years dreaming of the day she and her best friend Penelope will finally leave Saint Lupin's Institute for Perpetually Wicked and Hideously Unattractive Children. When the big day arrives, a series of very curious happenings lead to Anne being charged with an epic quest. Anne, Penelope, and new questing partner Hiro have only days to travel to strange new locales, solve myriad riddles, and triumph over monstrous foes-or face the horrible consequences. Packed with action, humor, and endless heart, this debut novel marks the first volume in an irresistible and original fantasy series.

Professional reviews

"Linda Henning's spirited narration proves that there's no such thing as too much adventure. For thrill-seeking Anne, who spends her days toiling at St. Lupin's Institute for Perpetually Wicked and Hideously Unattractive Children, a quest with her best friend, Penelope, is a dream come true. Henning captures the evil matron's contempt for Anne at school and during the quest, when she's cast as its token villain. Henning delivers all the guide's helpful hints with tongue in cheek. She keeps the tension up and the pacing brisk, for the stakes are high, time is running out, and the girls' futures hang in the balance. The audiobook whizzes by in a blur of exhilarating action-- cracking riddles, avoiding dragon fireballs, and evading deadly foes. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
