The constellations come to life in this imaginative fantasy adventure debut. Honorine’s life as as maid at the Vidalia mansion is rather dull, dusting treasures from faraway places and daydreaming in front of maps of the world. But everything changes when she catches two brutish sailors ransacking Lord Vidalia’s study and then follows a mysterious girl with wings out into the night. Suddenly, Honorine is whisked into the middle of a battle between the crew of a spectacular steamship and a band of mythical constellations. The stars in the sky have come to life to defend themselves against those who want to harness their powers. Much to her surprise, Honorine is the crux of it all, the center of an epic clash between magic and science, the old ways and the new. But can this spirited young girl bring both sides of a larger-than-life fight together before they unleash an evil power even older than the stars?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Readers will find it easy to connect emotionally with Honorine as she tries to navigate a world with no clear answers, while fantasy lovers will appreciate the mythological underpinnings of this imaginative new world.” School Library Journal
“The zippy pace…moves from one epic battle, chase, or discovery to another…[Honorine is] a smart, daring girl.” Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
"[An] adventure of the galactic variety…A fun, Rick Riordanesque escapade.” Booklist
“The pace is fast, the characters believable, and the setting original…. Readers enjoying a mix of fantasy, adventure, and a clever heroine will fall for this one.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Amy Landon taps into Honorine’s sense of loyalty and willingness to stand up for what’s right. The Mapmaker exudes primordial power from every pore in a deceptively friendly voice just seconds from being truly menacing. Each Mordant’s voice reflects its celestial gift; stellar examples include the steady baritone of Lux, the protector; the soothing tones of Serona, the healer; and the confidence of Astrella, the leader.” AudioFile
