Tanya is an orphan that was taken in by a bar owner. She learned all about how to handle things in a tavern. Then her bar owner died and she was ejected from that life because he hadn't written a will...
Amulet Books sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you). It has been published and you can get a copy now.
She joins the group that evicted her so she can get to the queen. She plans to ask for the tavern. But there is a little box that the men try to hide. She doesn't know what is in it but she wants to find out.
It's a quill and it likes her. She begins experimenting with it and finds that she can do many things with it.
This is an exciting fantasy tale that has several people involved. Tanya learns she can do blood magic, which is even stronger.
She meets the queen, who has some plans to use her, she goes to the outlaw town and gets in trouble there.
This is a busy tale with everyone having their own agenda. Will Tanya be able to stay alive?
