PRAISE FOR THE LAST NAMSARA: "Ciccarelli layers multiple story
threads... seamlessly weaving them back as the plot moves along.
The third-person narration allows full immersion in the world...
The larger political implications of war, rebellion, and the years
of rebuilding that must follow are all thoughtfully
examined."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"This engaging tale of love and adventure... is a fantasy reminiscent of Emma Orczy's The Scarlet Pimpernel."--Booklist
