Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old Mona isn't like the wizards charged with defending the city. She can't control lightning or speak to water. Her familiar is a sourdough starter, and her magic only works on bread. She has a comfortable life in her aunt's bakery making gingerbread men dance.

But Mona's life is turned upside down when she finds a dead body on the bakery floor. An assassin is stalking the streets of Mona's city, preying on magic folk, and it appears that Mona is his next target. And in an embattled city suddenly bereft of wizards, the assassin may be the least of Mona's worries....

A tour de force unimaginably good

T Kingfisher has an amazing knack for completely relatable characters and Patricia Santomasso did an impeccable job of bringing them to life. There are so many wonderful details in this book like the gingerbread men and Bob the sourdough starter. It’s yet another world I would be delighted to visit again. This is a story of how heroes are made even if they don’t want to be. You won’t regret listening to this.

Charming, Funny, and Perfectly Performed

An utterly charming and feel good story that does suffer from some pacing issues, but was well worth the read. Excellent narrator that perfectly captures the playful tone of the book. A great pick me up or pallet cleanser between heavier books.

Unique and Enjoyable!

Adults young and old will enjoy this book. It was unique - a different magical world I had not visited previously. Very enjoyable!
