Liobhan is a powerful singer and an expert whistle player; her brother Brocc has a voice to melt the hardest heart, and a rare talent on the harp. But Liobhan's burning ambition is to join the elite warrior band on Swan Island. While training, their unusual blend of skills makes them ideal for a particular job, which requires going undercover as traveling minstrels. Their mission: to find and retrieve a precious harp, an ancient symbol of kingship, which has gone missing.

Diving into a Marillier novel is a treat, both familiar and refreshingly new all at once. With a fast pace and multiple points of view, the reader captures a full picture of what happens within the court, the servants’ hall, and in the Otherworld with the druids and fae. Marillier’s typical lush descriptions and beautiful prose shine. The characters’ determination to accomplish their mission is so tangible, the reader can’t help but root for the recovery of the harp and the rightful king to ascend the throne. Music, action, druids, courtly intrigue, and Irish faeries as they should be—what more could you want from a Marillier novel? Fans of Tasha Suri, SA Chakraborty, and Patrick Rothfuss would enjoy this book.
