Summary
  • "Miranda Popescu, who was introduced in Paul Park's novel A Princess of Roumania, is at the fulcrum of a deadly political and diplomatic battle between conjurers in an alternate fantasy world where "Roumania" is a leading European power. For her own safety, Miranda was hidden in our world; adopted and raised by an American couple in a quiet Massachusetts college town. But at the beginning of this book she is translated, by magic, back to her own country."
  • "Her enemies are the mad Baroness Ceaucescu and the sinister Elector of Ratisbon, who hold her true mother prisoner in Germany. The Tourmaline tells the story of how Miranda - separated from her friends Peter and Andromeda - begins to grow into her new sense of self, traveling in secret through Roumania. It is also the tale of how these friends are shockingly and poignantly changed as they make their way out of the forests of an alternate America, and across the ocean, to find Miranda again. The story will be continued in The White Tiger."--BOOK JACKET
