The Wreath Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Wreath

The Wreath is a story of betrayal and the struggle for control over the forces of magic and scientific knowledge. Kassandra comes from the sea, but she spends most of her life far from it, an exile sent inland to grow up, and become a slave. Her father disappeared before she was born, and before dying, her mother passed on a hereditary source of magic, the Wreath of Poseidon, a gift so powerful that Kassandra's own family has turned on her.

She's caught between a murdering king, a governess who's been trying to kill her since she was four, and river witches who spy on her through the plumbing. She's managed to stay alive so far, but on her thirteenth birthday, she hears voices in her head of long-dead royalty, discovers that she has power over the oceans, and that she can travel along something like a hydro-molecular network, between any two points, wherever there is water.
