Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: BEQUEST REQUESTLife was hard for Sophie: tragically orphaned not so long ago, she eked out a living as a teacher in a poor-house school in a Dickensian London slum. Then her life was turned upside down when she was informed that a previously unsuspected uncle, now deceased, had left her a handsome legacy -- which she could redeem only after fulfilling a Last Request: to return a dragon's egg to its rightful place in the uncharted wastes of Central Asia.And so she begins her reverse quest, accompanied by a unicorn figurine that turns into a living, speaking know-it-all when no one is looking, a telepathic cat who wants nothing so much as three willing kisses from her sweet lips (so that he can, he says -- but who would believe a tomcat on such a matter? -- turn back into a prince), a feckless law clerk who doesn't want to be there, and an itinerant Irish would-be adventurer who should be anywhere else. On her journey, Sophie will learn that all of them, even the unicorn, will need more help than they can give -- and that healing them of their life's sorrows is as much part of the deal as dealing with that damned egg.In the course of her journey, she will be betrayed by a treacherous guide, captured by fierce Mongols, caught in an avalanche, and lost in an underground maze, all while the clock keeps ticking toward a deadline, after which the egg will die, her heritage be lost, and the arduous journey, incredible hardships, and terrible dangers will have been for nothing .

Inhaltsangabe: Life was hard for Sophie, recently orphaned in Victorian London. Then an uncle died and left her a substantial legacy -- if she can return a dragon's egg to an uncharted region of Asia in a year's time. Her only guide is a tiny ivory figurine of a unicorn which comes to life and talks to her when she wears a magic ring. With a telepathic cat and other companions, Sophie will be betrayed by a treacherous guide, captured by fierce Mongols, caught in an avalanche, and lost in an underground maze, all while the deadline approaches, after which her heroisms and hardships will have been for nothing.
