About the Author

Chris Moriarty grew up in New York surrounded by a loud and zany family much like Sacha's. She wrote The Inquisitor's Apprentice so her children could read a fantasy that celebrates their New York Jewish heritage. Chris has also written several award-winning science fiction novels. She lives in upstate New York.

Reviews

"Moriarty's novel is chock-full of period detail (both in the author's confident prose and Geyer's occasional pen-and-ink illustrations), feisty character dynamics, and a solid sense of humor. It's a fascinating example of alternate history that leaves the door open for future mysteries."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"A marvelous, mystical romp that doesn't ignore reality. A hint of a possible sequel whets readers' appetite for more: Yes, please!"--Kirkus, starred review

"Moriarty's thoroughly imagined alternate history has a killer premise...The mystery unfolds at a heady clip." -Booklist

"Spoiler Alert: It's awesome." --Fuse #8 Blog on School Library Journal
