Review

International praise for "The Letter for the King"
"The story has the quality of a legend."--"Nederlands Bagblad," Netherlands
"There ought to be a warning written on it: 'Watch out: Whoever reads this book will forget everything that's happening around them.'"--"Die Ziet," Germany
"Cinematic in its visual detail."--"Irish Times," Ireland
"The plot is central, and extremely gripping, but the writing also delivers lovely detail and evocative description."--"The Guardian," England

Praise for "The Letter for the King"
"Dragt's orderly prose describes a journey of refreshing unpredictability and unusual wisdom. Her unhurried style and sustained narrative perspective give the tale a lucidity[.] Tiuri is a thinking as well as an acting hero, whose judgment deepens and broadens through leadership and friendship." --"Horn Book"
"Dragt conjures up elements of Tolkien and the Arthurian mythos, combining the traditional hero's journey with an episodic structure, as though the novel was made for serial storytelling, or to be read aloud. [T]he rich language, lush descriptions, and sense of wonder allow it to hold its own against any competitor." --"Publishers Weekly"
"[R]eaders . . . will be enchanted by its timeless sense of wonder and adventure. This hero's journey evokes a legend in the making, and Tiuri embodies the classic knightly ideals of honor, valor, and chivalry." --"Booklist (online)"
"The English translation of a prizewinning 1962 Dutch historical adventure exhibits . . . old-school charms[.]" --"Kirkus Reviews"
"[T]he characters are appealing and the action will keep readers engaged." --"School Library Journal"
"[A] timeless tale . . . This is a book for those who have enjoyed legendary or contemporary stories of the battle between good and evil. [T]he clarity and beauty of the writing make it suitable for all ages." --"VOYA"

From the Inside Flap

A young messenger. A secret mission. A kingdom in peril. When sixteen-year-old Tiuri answers a desperate call for help, he finds himself on a perilous mission that could cost him his life. He must deliver a secret letter to the King who lives across the Great Mountains - a letter upon which the future of the entire realm depends. It means abandoning his home, breaking all the rules and leaving everything behind - even the knighthood that he has dreamed of for so long. The fate of a kingdom depends on just one person...He must trust no one. He must keep his true identity secret. Above all, he must never reveal what is in the letter.
