Volume 2 of the wacky alternate-reality Legacy Stone series picks up where the award-winning BRIMSTONE AND LILY ( Bronze Medal winner, 2010 Independent Publishers Book Awards) left off. 12 Medal Winner, year-old tomboy Verity and her wisecracking, shape-shifting, magic sword Jasper have only a few days left to rescue her friend Eddie from the clutches of the evil Merchantry. Disguised, she must make her way through medieval Spain and ancient Greek Portugal, having to contend with musket-wielding Furies, cast-iron submarines, Muslim assassins, vicious windmills, mysterious sorcerers, the dreaded Dreamworms, and 10,000 zombie women led by Dionysus himself. Not to mention Jasper's twisted sense of humor. Oh, and the usual poop monsters, of course. By journey's end Verity will learn the stunning truth about her missing father and her own amazing lineage. Full of allusions to HUCK FINN, THE ODYSSEY, KING LEAR, and many other literary classics, JASPER'S FOUL TONGUE is suitable for ages 10 to adult.
