Jetta's family is the most talented troupe of shadow players in the land. With Jetta behind the scrim, their puppets seem to move without string or stick-- a trade secret, they say. In truth, Jetta uses the forbidden old ways to bind the souls of the recently departed to the puppets with her blood. When the family earns a spot aboard the royal ship to Aquitan, they hear rumors the Mad King has a spring that cures his ills. Now Jetta will face decisions that she never imagined-- and safety seems far away. -- adapted from jacket.
