But the palace is rather boring, and she seeks mischief and adventure by hiding from the servants and getting as mucky as possible. One day she falls through a small door in the palace wall, meets a shepherd boy, and her adventures really begin!

Root's Bone Grit blood can Find anything that's gone missing, be it luck teeth or the Siren of Shade Howl. But, thanks to an aged curse, it's a skill that usually ends in a beating.

When the Guardian suddenly needs Root's Bone Grit blood to Find for him, she is incredulous. His false flattery is insulting enough but his Lost is worse. It feels disturbingly connected to darker Losts. Like secrets. And missing bodies. Root decides it's time to reach for freedom, far from the curse that has tailed her for too long. But, to her horror she realizes that, in this land of dark secrets and intrigue she has somehow become its most valuable pawn. And neither the Guardian nor the blood are willing to let her go. " 'This young heroine is bold and bright! The journey before her is full of thrilling twists, dark dips and humour reminiscent of Dahl and Rowling. Written with breathless imagination and craft, Miist is sure to fill a lot of fantasy shelves!' " Teen Pulp
