Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Years after the evil Snow Queen desolated the magical kingdom of Avalon, Prince Alexei, his friend Tala, and a ragtag band, inspired by the appearance of the Firebird, try to reclaim their land.
Many years ago the magical kingdom of Avalon was left desolate, encased in ice when evil Snow Queen waged war. The refugees of Avalon-- including Prince Alexei, the sole survivor of the Avalon royal family-- are stuck in Arizona. His friend, Tala Warnock, knows his secret-- and has a few of her own. The appearance of the Firebird, Avalon's deadliest weapon, reignites the refugees' desire to journey back to Avalon. But the Snow Queen, powerful but long thought dead, wants nothing more than to take the Firebird's magic for her own. -- adapted from jacket

    Of all the denizens of tiny Invierno, Arizona, only Tala and her family know that unassuming Alex Smith is really Prince Alexei, the last scion of the Kingdom of Avalon. He's hiding out from the agents of the Ice Queen of Beira, the tyrant responsible for encasing Avalon in ice. When the legendary firebird of Avalon suddenly descends upon Invierno, it is cause for both celebration and worry. While the firebird's appearance signifies hope for Alex to uncurse his lost home, it also helps the Ice Queen's minions pinpoint Alex's location. Luckily, Tala and her family have their own magic, rooted in Filipino traditions, to defend their charge. Chupeco's world building is a marvel, taking fairy tales and legends from all cultures and weaving them into an all-encompassing alternate history packed with wonder and whimsy. At the same time, it manages to capture the worries and joys of contemporary teen life. Readers looking for a vibrant, Harry Potteresque fantasy full of secrets, spies, magic, monsters, and mayhem need look no further. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
