"I gobbled it up " Tamora Pierce, on Lene Kaaberbol's "The Shamer's Daughter"
Dina has unwillingly inherited her mother's gift: the ability to elicit shamed confessions simply by looking into someone's eyes. To Dina, however, these powers are not a gift but a curse. Surrounded by fear and hostility, she longs for simple friendship.
But when her mother is called to Dunark Castle to uncover the truth about a bloody triple murder, Dina must come to terms with her power or let her mother fall prey to the vicious and revolting dragons of Dunark."
