Description

Sarah Prineas combines lore from a variety of cultures, a brave and resourceful young heroine, and a richly detailed magical world into a story that will delight middle-grade fans of Diana Wynne Jones and Rick Riordan.

In Summerkin, the sequel to Sarah Prineas's fantasy-adventure Winterling, Fer now the rules the magical realm as Lady of the Summerlands. Although Fer defeated Mór, the dark queen who terrorized the magical beings of the world, there are those who do not trust her. To prove herself, Fer, aided by her deep connection to the natural world and her healing arts, must enter a grueling contest. If she loses, she will be banned from the realm and all those she has come to love.

This edition features an Extras section with a character interview, a fun quiz, and a sneak peek at the third book in the series, Moonkind.

Back cover copy

To Gwynnefar of the Summerlands, greetings from the High Ones.

We have received word that you defeated the Mór, who was your mother the Lady Laurelin's betrayer and who stained the land with blood, and that you have cleansed the land of this stain. We have been told, too, that your father was one Owen, a human man.

After freeing her kin from the wicked false ruler, Fer is now the rightful Lady of the Summerlands. Yet her people don't know what to make of their new Lady's strange ways, and neither do the High Ones, the rulers of the magical realm, for Fer is an outsider--half human. To prove herself worthy of the Summerlands crown, Fer is summoned to compete in an epic contest where her strengths and skills will be tested and her loyalties challenged. Can she trust Rook, the puck she calls friend? Can she trust herself? If Fer fails, she will lose her land and the Way will be closed to her forever.
