($8.00 per book) The Bridge, Crown and Jewel, and The Two Collars make up The Bracken Trilogy. The tiny kingdom of Bracken, a just and happy land with merry kings and noble knights, runs up against invaders, robbers, traitors, and slave traders in these three books. Down through the ages, the mysterious wise woman appears in the nick of time to offer help to the besieged kingdom. Feared and hated by the wicked and loved (but sometimes also feared) by the just, she confronts the terror of evil and patiently offers wisdom and kindness to those in need. Filled with adventure and fast-paced action, the Bracken Trilogy has been a favorite of readers for 30 years. Middle school and above.
