Description

A young girl raised by a witch, a swamp monster, and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon must unlock the dangerous magic buried deep inside her in this epic coming-of-age fairy tale from the highly acclaimed author of The Witch's Boy. Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the forest, Xan, is kind and gentle. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster named Glerk and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon, Fyrian. Xan rescues the abandoned children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey. One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. When Luna approaches her thirteenth birthday, her magic begins to emerge on schedule—but Xan is far away. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Soon, it is up to Luna to protect those who have protected her—even if it means the end of the loving, safe world she's always known. The acclaimed author of The Witch's Boy has created another epic coming-of-age fairy tale destined to become a modern classic.

        Starred review from June 6, 2016
        Xan, a kindhearted witch, lives in the woods with an erudite swamp monster, Glerk, and a lovable “Perfectly Tiny Dragon,” Fyrian. Every year she finds a new home for a baby the sorrowful people of the Protectorate leave in the woods on the Day of Sacrifice. One year, she accidentally “enmagicks” a baby with moonlight, so the three decide to raise her as their own, their Luna. But Luna’s magic is strong, and before her 13th birthday, events unfold that will change everything she has known. Barnhill (The Witch’s Boy) crafts another captivating fantasy, this time in the vein of Into the Woods. Via intricately woven chapters that follow Luna, her unusual family, the devious Grand Elder of the Protectorate, his honorable nephew and niece, the mysterious Sister Ignatia, and a sympathetic “madwoman” in a tower, Barnhill delivers an escalating plot filled with foreshadowing, well-developed characters, and a fully realized setting, all highlighting her lyrical storytelling. As the characters search for family, protect secrets, and seek truth, they realize that anything can happen in the woods—when magic is involved. Ages 10–up. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House.

      • content: Narrator Christina Moore brings warmth to this coming-of-age story about Luna, a girl left in the woods as a sacrifice but saved and raised by a kindly witch, a swamp monster, and a miniature dragon. Moore defines each character with her voices, giving a sharp edge to Xan, the witch; notes of wisdom to Glerk, the swamp monster; and solemnity and feeling to Antain, the man who seeks to end the town's annual sacrifices. Moore adds spirit and notes of confusion to Luna as she approaches her thirteenth birthday and overwhelming events are set in motion that make it clear to her that she's not like other children. First-rate fantasy. A.F. � AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine
