In the Enemy's Service

When the Malornian army invaded Alasia and Prince Jaymin was forced to flee for his life, what happened to those left behind?  In the Enemy’s Service tells the story of ten-year-old Anya, imprisoned among other survivors and forced to work for the occupying troops.  While pretending to follow orders and serve diligently in the palace, Anya discovers ingenious ways to spy on enemy officers and slip valuable information to the Alasian resistance. 

            But as she helps to craft plans that may eventually free Alasia, Anya accidentally uncovers a disturbing reference to her own family.  Her fears are strengthened when she is confronted by a mysterious Malornian who seems somehow to know the truth behind the role she has been playing.  Holding her life in his hands with that knowledge, he claims to bear information implicating her father in the betrayal that led to the Invasion itself.

"well written enjoyed the beginning to the end. I could easily see myself in different characters during the book."
-Carrie Bray

"If you've read the Prince of Alasia, you must read this sequel, for the way in which the author intertwines the two stories is truly amazing."
-Family Oriented

"This sequel to Prince of Alasia is just as entertaining as the first book. It's a great read for middle school students and yet, as an adult, it held my attention.... This well-crafted adventure will keep you turning the page and sorry to say good bye to its characters when the tale comes to an end."
-Ted Moon

"This book had me hooked from the first page! ... It was adventurous and had me at the edge of my seat the whole time. I would recommend this to everyone who loves a great adventure."
-Lisa the Sloth

"Could not put it down! I read the book on a laptop, which is not ideal for reading, but I just couldn't stop. This book has suspense, drama, mystery, espionage, intrigue...everything that makes for a good story. The writing was so well done that you can lose yourself in the time period and forget you are just sitting on your couch staring at a screen. Talented author, would definitely recommend any of her books and would love to read more from her in the future!"
-V. Howard

"The story is highly engaging from start to finish. The characters are well developed and I took to all of them, both good and bad. This is well written and fast paced and you progress through the book at high speed."
-Sam Arnold

"The story is involved, suspenseful, and definitely kept my attention. If you enjoy a good fantasy novel, complete with swords and treachery, this one has enough action, humor, and drama to supply many hours of reading entertainment."
-Barbara Brink

"This is what you would call a "can't put down" kind of book .... I read the book on my laptop and I had all I could do to put it down and do something else. Even when I wasn't reading, the story was on my mind, and I was wondering how it would turn out. Great book, great author, would recommend this book to anyone!"
