Description

Miranda Popescu is at the fulcrum of a deadly political and diplomatic battle between conjurers in a fantasy world where "Roumania," now occupied by the German army, is still a leading European power. Her enemies are the mad Baroness Ceausescu, serving as a figurehead-of-state, and the ghost of the sinister Elector of Ratisbon. A Princess of Roumania brought the teen-aged Miranda and her two best friends into the conflict, from a place of safety in our world. The Tourmaline told how Miranda began to grow into her new sense of self, as she travelled in secret through Roumania, defeated the elector in the spirit world, and lit a fire of resistance against the German occupation and the baroness' corrupt regime. Now reunited with her friends in "The White Tyger", she suffers a reversal and is captured by the baroness, along with her true mother, who was held prisoner in Germany since Miranda's birth. Both in the spirit world and in Roumania, the story in "The White Tyger" moves toward a series of starling climaxes.
