The breathtaking climax to Paul Park’s lyrical and mesmerizing series. “Park…should be knighted.”--Entertainment Weekly

The Hidden World
is the concluding volume in Paul Park’s remarkable tale of Roumania, a world that is both more real and yet also more mysterious and magical than our own.

After finding out that she is the lost princess of Roumania and the mythical White Tyger, Miranda’s fate is still uncertain. The ghosts of her enemies cluster about her, the insane spirit of the Baroness takes possession of her body for a time, and demons released by her mother are abroad. And through it all her heart calls out to Peter, away with the army, whom she has come to love, and her best friend Andromeda, sworn to help her and protect her. There are no easy answers; it all looks impossible. Any hope may lie in the hidden world of spirits, where death is but an inconvenience.

Two hundred kilometers to the north and east of Bucharest, in a farmhouse in the village of Stanesti-Jui, Miranda lay asleep. After dinner she had retired to her bedroom with a head cold.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Hidden World

“Deft, inventive, and intelligent, The White Tyger opens a window onto a world where imagination rules. This is as deeply pleasurable to read as Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time or Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy.”
--Andrea Barrett on The White Tyger

“A girlish daydream becomes all too real in this masterpiece of contemporary fantasy. To compare Paul Park with Philip Pullman or John Crowley gives a hint of the kind of satisfaction his fiction provides.”
--Ursula K. LeGuin on A Princess of Roumania

A Princess of Roumania is at once a vastly ambitious and passionately realized work of art. A huge achievement.”
--John Crowley on A Princes of Roumania

“His people are alive, exasperating, and exhilarating.  His world is a grand creation, complex and inventive, charming and threatening, real and impossible, as our own.”
--Michael Swanwick on Paul Park
