Readers who love the adventure in Megan Whalen Turner's Newbery Honor novel The Thief will be captivated by Molly's dangerous magical quest in this thrilling sequel to Diane Stanley's novel The Silver Bowl.

Night after night, Molly has visions of a beautiful goblet: one of her grandfather's loving cups, which he filled with magic that bound people together. So it hardly surprises Molly when handsome King Alaric asks her to find a loving cup to help him win the heart of the beautiful Princess of Cortova.

As Molly and her friends Winifred and Tobias journey in search of a loving cup, a mysterious raven joins their quest and appears to guide them all the way to the hidden city of Harrowsgode. There, Molly discovers secrets about her own family as well as the magic of the loving cup. But Harrowsgode is hidden for a reason, and leaving is more difficult than Molly imagined. Will she be able to escape, let alone bring a loving cup to King Alaric?

Praise for The Silver Bowl: [T]he pacing is masterful, with new information and character development doled out in exactly the right doses, intercut with thrilling escapes and clever plots...a satisfying yarn of loyalty rewarded and mutual understanding gained. --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"

Sent by King Alaric on a crucial mission, Molly is drawn to the secret walled city of Harrowsgode, protected from the world by mountains and magic. The mysteries she encounters there, and the powerful forces she must overcome, require every ounce of her cunning and courage. With the help of Tobias, a ratcatcher named Richard, and a clever and devoted raven, Molly gains her own freedom in a most unexpected way.
