In this fast-paced series, feisty fourteen-year-old Merle and her friends Junipa and Serafin live in enchanted Venice, which has been under siege by Egypt for over 30 years. The Venetians' only protection is the Flowing Queen. But when the Queen's very existence is threatened, Merle soon finds herself at the center of a struggle for Venice's survival. But the final battle is one that she and her friends never could have imagined--and the cost will be high indeed.
The author's imaginative use of history and mythology combine with fast-paced storytelling to create a page-turning series that is utterly compelling.
