Young Rhea is a miller’s daughter of low birth, so she is understandably surprised when a mysterious nobleman, Lord Crevan, shows up on her doorstep and proposes marriage. Since commoners don’t turn down lords—no matter how sinister they may seem—Rhea is forced to agree to the engagement.

Lord Crevan demands that Rhea visit his remote manor before their wedding. Upon arrival, she discovers that not only was her betrothed married six times before, but his previous wives are all imprisoned in his enchanted castle. Determined not to share their same fate, Rhea asserts her desire for freedom. In answer, Lord Crevan gives Rhea a series of magical tasks to complete, with the threat “Come back before dawn, or else I’ll marry you.”

With time running out and each task more dangerous and bizarre than the last, Rhea must use her resourcefulness, compassion, and bravery to rally the other wives and defeat the sorcerer before he binds her to him forever.

T. Kingfisher is the pen name that Ursula Vernon uses when she writes for grown-ups. In her other life, she writes children’s books and weird comics and has won the Nebula, Hugo, Sequoyah, and Mythopoeic Awards, as well as a half-dozen Junior Library Guild selections. Kingfisher hails from North Carolina.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK Rhea was a pretty good character with a good head on her shoulders. However the circumstances surrounding the story were so far-fetched that I had trouble suspending my disbelief at times. Still, good story that kept me reading through to the end.
