Once upon a time, in a village nestled in a mountain valley, lived a girl named Darkin. Darkin wants three things more than anything else: to visit the farthest-away mountain, to meet a gargoyle, and to marry a prince. Everyone
in her village thinks she’s crazy, especially since no one has ever been to the farthest-away mountain. But one day, when she is nearly 15, she hears the mountain calling her. Darkin sets off on a tantalizing journey that will change her life, and the lives of others, forever.

“The strength of Banks’ fantasy-writing abilities really comes through. . . . Dakin’s courage and determination strengthen a good fantasy probing the nature of good and evil.”
