The Hero and the Crown

Written by Robin McKinley

Although Aerin is the daughter of Damar's king, she has never been accepted as full royalty. That's because her mother was a witch who was said to have cast a spell over the king to produce an heir. But she killed herself in despair when she discovered she had had a girl. Yet Aerin is destined for greatness, especially when she learns how to use the Blue Sword.
