Overview

"A rare jewel. A new classic in the fantasy genre." Eoin Colfer, author of the bestselling Artemis Fowl series

"A magnificent, rich, exhilarating book. I say this with all honesty: I haven't read about a world so deep, so purely magical, so well-developed, since Harry Potter." James Dashner, author of the bestselling Maze Runner series

In the first book of Henry H. Neff s new high-stakes middle grade fantasy series, two unlikely allies confront a conspiracy that will shake the world of Impyrium to its core.

For over three thousand years, the Faeregine dynasty has ruled Impyrium. But the family s magic has been fading, and with it their power over the empire. Whether it s treachery from a rival house, the demon Lirlanders, or rebel forces, many believe the Faeregines are ripe to fall.

Hazel, the youngest member of the royal family, is happy to leave ruling to her sisters so that she can study her magic. But the empress has other plans for her granddaughter, dark and dangerous plans to exploit Hazel s talents and rekindle the Faeregine mystique. Hob, a commoner from the remote provinces, has been sent to the city to serve the Faeregines and to spy on them.

One wants to protect the dynasty. The other wants to destroy it. But when Hazel and Hob form an improbable friendship, their bond may save the realm as they know it or end it for good.

Neff (the Tapestry series) crafts an exciting opening volume for his Impyrium series, set in a dramatically altered future version of our world, 3,000 years after civilization was overthrown by Astaroth, a powerful demon. Following the event that became known as the Cataclysm, the Faeregines, a family of magic users, defeated Astaroth, pulling humanity back from the brink and creating a royal dynasty that still rules. Twelve-year-old Hazel Faeregine—short, albino, and the youngest of triplet sisters who are heirs to the throne—is looked down on by much of her family but harbors unexpected powers. Hob, a young man from the northern wastes, has been recruited by the Faeregines’ enemies as a weapon aimed at the empire’s heart, but no one counted on him befriending Hazel. Neff’s novel is wonderfully detailed, building a rich and fascinating picture of a complex society. Hob is an engaging hero, but the book’s real joys come from watching Hazel find herself, coming stunningly “alive, more vividly and deliciously than she could remember.” Readers will share her excitement and eagerly await the next book. Ages 8–12. Agent: Josh Adams, Adams Literary. (Oct.)
