Once upon a time, I had known nothing about my family. But then I went to Europe and discovered who I really was. And my new life...well, it was like something right out of a fairy tale. I was a member of the royal family of Dobrenica, a tiny, obscure European country with some very unusual attributes. Like magic. And ghosts. And vampires.

But for the first time in my life I was truly happy. I was engaged to be married to the heir apparent to the throne, and we were in love. So my mood was high as I walked under the triumphal arch in the center of the capital city and passed the off little painting of a door that had intrigued me ever since I first came to Dobrenica.

It was rendered so realistically that on first glance it seemed three dimensional, and I always ran my fingers over the amazing painting as I passed. But this time, my fingers closed on an actual cold metal doorknob, and the door swung inward, revealing a sun-drenched landscape and a teenage girl with honey-colored braids.

As I stepped over the magical threshold, she spoke.

"You are called to guide the child Aurelie,"she said. "But that is only half your task: to save Dobrenica, you must bring her here."

And with that, she disappeared, leaving me floating like a spirit in a strange world, two hundred years in the past.

This book, while related to the previous two in the series, focuses more on the life of Aurelie and her journey to Dobrenica during the time of Napoleon. Her life is upset first when she is moved from Jamaica to England at 13 and lives in the cold house of her English aunt and Uncle. Then again at 18 when her suspicious aunt finds out that her father was actually a run-away slave and she is rejected for being half African. Aurelie is forced to leave with no money and just the clothes on her back. She does meet up with two fellow musicians who believe she is a boy and they make their way to Paris. They go their separate ways and then eventually rejoin to journey across France, Austria and finally end in Dobrenica. Things don't go smoothly though and they have some other adventures before returning and getting married. Finally Kim returns to Alec and her family and everyone has their happy ending. There are a few unanswered questions which may be the set-up for another book in this series.
