Dina has inherited her mother's gift: she is a Shamer, able to see a person's most guilty secrets just by gazing in their eyes. But sometimes her gift feels more like a curse. Nobody seems to want a friend who can see their deepest shame. But when Dina's mother is called to Dunark Castle to uncover the truth about a terrible crime, Dina must come to terms with her power, and quickly - or let her mother fall prey to the vicious dragons of Dunark.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The series as a whole is in good standing alongside Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy and C. S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia." - Booklist, starred review

"The term 'page-turner' is often used, but not always justified. It is deserved here, tenfold. I really, really couldn't put the book down." - School Librarian

"The most original new fiction of this kind ... thrilling and thoughtful." - The Times

"Spiced with likable characters and an intriguing new magical ability - eagerly awaiting volume two." -Kirkus

"This novel stands on its own and offers a satisfying conclusion even as it provides an intriguing setting and mythology for future adventures." - Publishers Weekly

"An absorbing and fast-paced fantasy/mystery bursting with action and intrigue. The only question is: when will the next one come out?" - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Full of passion." - Guardian

I gobbled it up!" - Tamora Pierce, author of The Song of the Lioness
