Flora’s Dare, by Ysabeau S. Wilce, (Harcourt, 2008)

Still determined to become a ranger like her hero Nini Mo, Flora Segunda sets her sights towards learning the magical language of Gramatica. This leads her into a whole new series of adventures, such as fighting tentacled horrors, defying her father, falling through time, outwitting an infamous killer, and learning some of the city’s best-kept secrets … including some about her own family. With the fate of the city hinging upon whether she lives or dies, Flora’s going to have to get creative, just like a ranger would. But does she have what it takes to complete the ultimate ranger dare, and cheat death itself? Her life will never be the same, no matter how this affair turns out. The sequel to Flora Segunda, Flora’s Dare is easily one of the quirkiest, most imaginative fantasy stories to hit the shelves this season, and a thorough treat for everyone. Flora is a character with plenty of spirit, her personality shining through on every page, and this is a setting that demands even more exploration, and soon.
