The Way to Dendara

The Query:

Lucy Akker has tried hard to forget her tragic past and the accompanying nightmares, escaping into her books and the occasional nice dream. But on her twenty-first birthday a box arrives arrives with a key, the key to a magic kingdom. Unfortunately, it is not the kingdom with the fairies and elves and wood sprites. It’s the other one, the one with the trolls and goblins and a half brother who’d like nothing better than the throne for himself.

For Lucy, the hardest part will not be ruling the kingdom; it will be keeping it.
