Gr 5 Up–Ellie and Seth have traveled to a mysterious island where they meet Kate, a girl who is really the Queen in disguise. Due to a predicted famine on the island, the Queen is expected to use her powers, passed on from royal generations before her, to solve the island’s major problem. Ellie befriends Kate, only to learn a tragic secret about the Queen and her powers. Kate has no idea about Ellie and Seth’s capabilities. Many enemies have come to wreak havoc on the island, causing Ellie to doubt herself and her safety. Nearly every page features danger and adventure.
