The goblin King's face lit up with amusement. "Seylin was proposing marriage to you," he cried, "and you wanted him to change into a cat?"
A thrilling and magical sequel to The Hollow Kingdom
For years Emily has been living happily in the underground goblin kingdom. Now she is old enough to marry, but when her childhood friend Seylin proposes, she doesn't even pay attention.
Devastated, Seylin leaves the kingdom to find his own people: the elves. Emily sets out in search of him. But they accidentally awaken hatreds and prejudices that have slumbered for hundreds of years, and soon two worlds are brought onto a dangerous collision course.
Clare B. Dunkle once again draws readers deep into the magical realm that Newbery-winning author Lloyd Alexander calls "as persuasive as it is remarkable."
