About This Book
When a bookish country lass stumbles onto a court secret while trying to save the princess (and the princess turns out to be in no danger at all) the Chancellor sends her on an apprenticeship to a high mountain jeweler to get her out of the way; but he is unaware that the civil war in the neighboring kingdom is spilling over into the jeweler’s house.
Fia Brithin is beginning an adventure.
~”On her first visit to the palace, 16 year old Fia Brithin stumbles into a court intrigue. To keep the secret safe, the Chancelor sends her off as apprentice to a famous, and reclusive, high mountain jeweler.
…And straight into adventure.
Discovering gems with deep secrets and new friends with the same, Fia learns a whole lot more than just modeling wax. When to trust a stranger, and when not to; why not to try stealing from gem thieves; what heroism is, what royalty ought to be, and that the mountains themselves can sometimes be the greatest danger of all.
The first in a series, Jeweler’s Apprentice introduces protagonist Fia Brithin to the wide, wide world, and starts her on a journey toward adventures, and that difficult thing called growing up.”~
