Summary

Young Remeya - fosterling and maid-in-waiting to King Xavo's sister - worships the old and forbidden horned god alongside the princess. 
 
A worship made taboo half a millennium ago. Performed still in secret by a few. Quietly tolerated by the king. 
 
Until madness took him, there beside the stone well on the grassy hillside of the castle's outer bailey. 
 
As the king's mind unravels into violence, no one near him remains safe, not even his best beloved. Especially not his best beloved. 
 
Worse, Remeya believes King Xavo's insanity arose from her own mistake. Because she said yes, instead of no. 
 
When life itself hangs in the balance, putting wrong to right is surely past praying for. Or is it? 
 
Epic fantasy in which old beliefs and old loyalties clash with hidden magic in the Middle Ages of J.M. Ney-Grimm's god-touched North-lands. 
 
 
EXCERPT FROM HUNTING WILD 
 
The pebbles of the underground stream bed dug into the soles of her feet, and the chill of the shallow water numbed her toes. 
 
The rough surface of the ceiling sloped down, scraping her back, forcing her to bend, to crouch, to curl enough that she caught her balance with her hands in the wet. 
 
The light faded swiftly. Had she gone far enough? 
 
She paused, eyes adjusting. 
 
The glimmering ripples of the spring's source cast dim flickers against the rocks pressing her down.

    Abdullah was a young and not very prosperous carpet dealer. His father, who had been disappointed in him, had left him only enough money to open a modest booth in the Bazaar. When he was not selling carpets, Abdullah spent his time daydreaming. In his dreams he was not the son of his father, but the long-lost son of a prince. There was also a princess who had been betrothed to him at birth. He was content with his life and his daydreams until, one day, a stranger sold him a magic carpet. 
    In this stunning sequel to Howl's Moving Castle, Diana Wynne Jones has again created a large-scale, fast-paced fantasy in which people and things are never quite what they seem. There are good and bad djinns, a genie in a bottle, wizards, witches, cats and dogs (but are they cats and dogs?), and a mysterious floating castle filled with kidnapped princesses, as well as two puzzling prophecies. The story speeds along with tantalizing twists and turns until the prophecies are fulfilled, true identities are revealed, and all is resolved in a totally satisfying, breathtaking, surprise-filled ending.
