“An exciting adventure story, a powerful alternate history, and a multi-layered story of personal growth. Miranda sacrifices a life of privilege to rebel against social constraints and to understand painful personal mysteries about her life, revealed only by flashes of memory and confused dreams. As she fights back against the restrictions and hypocrisy of society, she also discovers the secrets of her life and her family, and chooses the values that will drive her actions—and she refuses to ‘print the legend.’”~ William F. Wu, science fiction, fantasy, and crime author.
