"A fun adventure fantasy...a great choice for middle grade students."
When you can't remember most of your life, you'd better be prepared for anything. The day a talking crow meets her on the way home from school, fourteen-year-old Rosinda is plunged into a forgotten world filled with startling revelations: magic ability flows in her veins, she's most comfortable with a sword in her hand, and the responsibility for finding a missing prince rests solely with her.
While dark forces hover in the background and four forgotten war gods from Earth's past plot to reclaim long-lost power, Rosinda struggles with waves of slowly-returning memories as she searches for clues about her past and the true identity of her family; a search that takes her back and forth between two worlds. In a race against time to recover her memory, find the prince, and rescue her loved ones, Rosinda has only her friend Jerrell and an unusual trio of animals as companions. And as the gods prepare to bring her world to war, Rosinda is unaware that the shadow of betrayal lurks within one whom she trusts the most
"This fantasy is a quick-paced adventure from beginning to end. A walk home turns to a trip to a new world for Rosinda, where her memories, long suppressed, begin to reawaken. Led by a crow and joined by a boy, a cat, and a wolf, Rosinda sets out to save her Aunt and to reclaim her memories. What she finds is more than she ever imagined. YA readers will love this quick fantasy."
