InHughes was released from the Royal Navy and went to live with her mother and sister in London. Pendergast, Tom, and Sara Pendergast, editors, St. Rebellious at first, the girl learns to accept her new life, but the spartan lifestyle and her need for companionship eventually take their toll. It attacks a peaceful planet.

Sent to the desert country of Roshan to marry Prince Jodril, Antia is brought under the spell of her evil tutor, Eskoril, who, hoping to control both continents, convinces the princess to spy on her betrothed. Even in 7th grade, I was ready for deeper sci-fi reading, but I do appreciate how it manages to be a great gateway into hard science fiction concepts for younger readers and neophytes to the genre. InHughes produced the first volume of her "Isis" trilogy. Most of his friends had died or been displaced by rising rents. My 11 year old son LOVES it, and I can see why - Moon colonization, undersea colonization, politics, intrigue, interesting well imagined environments, a well paced-plot.
