"Delilah is a swashbuckling heroine who will have readers constantly wondering what will happen next. Selim, on the other hand, is more reserved—longing for some tea and quiet—but once he gets sucked into Delilah’s orbit, he’s unable to resist the taste of adrenaline. Anchoring the story is Cliff’s lush artwork....A terrific action story for both older and younger teens and anyone else with an insatiable appetite for high adventure." -- Snow Wildsmith, Booklist
