Book one of the Clash of the Kingdoms series. Meet Britta who finds herself in dire straights after her father passes away leaving her essentially homeless since girls cannot inherit. The boy she loves has been accused of murdering her father, and she finds herself hunting him in an effort to save herself from the gallows though things do not go the way she has planned. The evolving mystery keeps the reader hooked with plenty of surprises along the way. I enjoyed the book quite a bit, and give it 4/5 stars.
