Description
Twice a winner of the Carnegie Medal and the recipient of the Hans Christian Anderson Award, as well as the namesake for New Zealand's Margaret Mahy Award, Mahy here gives us a fantasy for readers 12 and up about a boy born with strange abilities. Heriot has always known that he was different, enduring terrifying dreams and unexpected psychic powers. Taken from his family farm, he is forced to serve as the King's magician in the capital city of Diamond. His only friends are Dysart the "mad prince" and Cayley, a mysterious wild child of the streets. Their friendship is tested to the limit when a violent and ambitious enemy threatens to crush Diamond and its king. Heriot's psychic abilities hide a deeper power that has the strength to bring Diamond's enemies to their knees—but will he be able to control this power without becoming a monster himself?

"Mahy uses fantasy to get across what adolescence is really about, transcending the limitations of the here and now into something timeless."—Independent (London)
