The Hostage Prince is a fast-paced, funny, exciting fantasy novel for young readers, both male and female. And who better to start tweens on their journey than Jane Yolen (“America’s Hans Christian Andersen”—Time) and her son, Adam Stemple!
“An entertaining, thrilling fantasy with a host of endearing characters.” —Publishers Weekly
“Aspen and Snail are refreshingly atypical heroes.” —School Library Journal
“A rather thoughtful look at conflict, loyalty, and courage, and the discussion sparked here will hopefully continue with the proposed sequels.” —BCCB
