Grade 7 Up–Fifteen years ago, the king and queen of Linevan had twins–a boy and a girl. A prophecy foretold that their daughter would, at the age of 16, be the poison that destroys the world. In order to avoid this catastrophe, they sent her out to die, but their orders were not followed, and Princess Pacifica has survived in another kingdom. When her parents learn that she is still alive, they send guards after her. Pacifica travels with her adopted brother, Shannon, who is a brave warrior, and sister, Raquel, who has a way with magic. Bounty hunters, assassins, and thieves beset the three continually. The sibling relationship is troubled but ultimately normal; the kids tease one another in the midst of life-or-death situations, and that ordinariness is comforting and refreshing. The trio's tight bond is the strength of the story. A funny, brief moment of Barbie-like nudity may make some readers giggle. This is an action-packed story with a great premise, but it's also difficult to follow. Mediocre art and minimal characterization make it tough to tell who is speaking or, occasionally, what's going on. Often, baddies are introduced via flashback, with little to no warning. Fans of anime may have the easiest time keeping track of characters and events.–Sarah Couri, New York Public Library
