About the Author

Claire Legrand is the bestselling author of fantasy fiction for children and young adults.

Reviews

"Twelve-year-old twin sisters Brier and Thorn . . . live in war-torn Vale. Their soldiers battle a monster, Gulgot, who dwells in an ever-widening chasm. . . . LeGrand's story features loving siblings with very different personalities, setting up a familiar dynamic for children. The peril always seems real, evoked fully as the author switches from Thorn's to Brier's to Celestyna's to the Gulgot's internal thoughts. . . . [An] edgy, intricate fantasy."--School Library Journal
"Children must save a kingdom in a stand-alone companion to Foxheart. . . . The wicked Gulgot climbs ever closer to the top of the chasm, pushing darkness and evil before it. . . . Thorn may not recognize her own strength, but the many depictions of family, especially sisters, make it clear to readers that the gentle heart is the stronger one. Luscious writing and magical moments."--Kirkus Reviews
"The Break, a deep chasm that splits the realm of the Vale in half, is becoming unstable lately, and the monstrous Gulgot that lives within it will soon make its way to the surface. . . . Readers of Legrand's Foxheart will see familiar faces here, but knowledge of that book isn't required. . . . The book's message is a worthy one: 'It is no small thing, to have a gentle heart.'"--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
