Description
As her eighth summer in the charming village of Finch approaches Lori Shepard finds herself craving something to spice up her all-too-familiar routine. Her wish is fulfilled when a rowdy Renaissance festival comes to town, but Lori never anticipated the sort of excitement - and mystery - that the fair brings to the otherwise docile English village.King Wilfred's Faire is unlike anything Lori has ever seen. The age of chivalry lives again within its faux-stone walls; wizards, wenches, magicians, and minstrels provide fairgoers with lighthearted entertainment. Lords quaff, jesters laugh, and knights do battle in the joust arena. Lori's neighbors are enchanted by the pageantry and accept King Wilfred's invitation to join in the fun. While they eat, drink, and make merry, Finch is besieged by tipsy tourists, wandering wizards, and bellicose knights who threaten to turn the sleepy village upside down.As the villagers attempt to rout the rampaging hordes, Lori discovers a dark layer of intrigue lurking beneath the fair's bright surface. Is a sinister figure stalking young Mirabel, the angel-voiced madrigal singer? Has a jealous rival sabotaged the Dragon Knight's weapons? Is an evil assassin trying to murder Good King Wilfred? Or has Lori's imagination run away with her yet again?Consulting with her dear Aunt Dimity for otherworldly advice, Lori races to save her beloved village - risking her neck in the process - and attempts to keep medieval revelry from ending in modern-day tragedy.
