Kirkus Reviews in a starred review writers, “Gidwitz strikes literary gold with this mirthful and compulsively readable adventure story set in medieval France… While the three protagonists initially come together out of necessity, the heartwarming friendship they form celebrates a common humanity that transcends the bounds of race, religion, and social class…. a masterpiece of storytelling that is addictive and engrossing.”

The first book in the trilogy, A Tale Dark and Grimm, was also a New York Times bestseller and a New York Times Editors’ Choice, a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, an ALA Notable Book, and received several other honors.
