Baker & Taylor
Reunited with her old friends only to be captured by her archnemesis, Miranda Popescu once again matches wits with the mad Baroness Ceausescu as she finds herself at the center of a dangerous political and diplomatic firestorm between conjurers.

McMillan Palgrave
This is a truly magical tale, full of strangeness, terrors and wonders. Many girls daydream that they are really a princess adopted by commoners. In the case of teenager Miranda Popescu, this is literally true. Because she is at the fulcrum of a deadly political battle between conjurers in an alternate world where "Roumania" is a leading European power, Miranda was hidden by her aunt in our world, where she was adopted and raised in a quiet Massachusetts college town.
The narrative is split between our world and the people in Roumania working to protect or to capture Miranda: her Aunt Aegypta Schenck versus the mad Baroness Ceaucescu in Bucharest, and the sinister alchemist, the Elector of Ratisbon, who holds her true mother prisoner in Germany. This is the story of how Miranda -- with her two best friends, Peter and Andromeda -- is brought back to her home reality. Each of them is changed in the process and all will have much to learn about their true identities and the strange world they find themselves in.
This story is a triumph of contemporary fantasy.

Blackwell North Amer
Miranda Popescu is at the fulcrum of a deadly political and diplomatic battle between conjurers in a fantasy world where "Roumania," now occupied by the German army, is still a leading European power. Her enemies are the mad Baroness Ceausescu, serving as a figurehead-of-state, and the ghost of the sinister Elector of Ratisbon.
Now reunited with her friends in The White Tyger, she suffers a reversal and is captured by the baroness, along with her true mother, Clara Brancoveanu, held prisoner in Germany since Miranda's birth.
In this book, the baroness, a character of wonderfully Shakespearean complexity and power, steals the political role of white tyger from Miranda and is the ruler of Roumania. Both in the spirit world and in Roumania, the story in The White Tyger moves toward a series of climaxes.
