Reviews

"Wexler is an able builder of magical worlds and creatures, with labyrinths, an enchanted library, and a feisty, swashbuckling heroine at the center. A story rich in action and allegory--fantasy fans will want to hang on for what comes next."--Kirkus

"Full of action and adventure, this tale will enthrall fans of the first novel."--School Library Journal

"With an original concept, a brave and spirited heroine, and tantalizing incipient relationships among the apprentices (including Alice's hot-and-cold friendship with Isaac, who tricked her in the first volume), Wexler's series grows stronger by the book."--Horn Book


Praise for The Forbidden Library
"Working in the grand tradition of children's fantasy, Wexler's off to a promising start."--Kirkus

"A charming, adventuresome fantasy from a promising new author."--Booklist

"Reminiscent of Cornelia Funke's Inkheart (Scholastic, 2003) and Neil Gaiman's Coraline (HarperCollins, 2002)."--School Library Journal
