    “Wonderfully descriptive language in a middle-grade fantasy with whispers of historical fiction. When Only Fallow’s power to see lies means she becomes a tool for the king, she quickly finds herself caught up in a swirl of political intrigue at the royal court. You’ll root for Only as she fights for her family, her friends, and the country she loves.”

    Buffy Cummins, Second Star to the Right Books (Denver, CO)

    “I absolutely cannot wait to put this book into the hands of every reader looking for a thrilling, page-turning adventure. Our heroine, Only Fallow, can see when someone is lying, but telling lies will gravely injure her. The fate of the kingdom hinges upon who can harness Only’s amazing power—for good or evil.”


    Nancy Baenen, Arcadia Books (Spring Green, WI)
