The dark Middle Ages jump to life in blazing color as Lilli Thal conjures up a world of adventure and imagination.

Two mighty kingdoms have been engaged in endless, merciless war, but change appears imminent. King Philip is meeting his arch-enemy, King Theodo, to sign a peace treaty. But King Philip and his men are tricked and consigned to the squalid dungeons of King Theodo's castle. Soon, 12-year-old Prince Florin is lured to the castle, where the same horror awaits him.

On a whim, King Theodo decides to make the crown prince his second fool, trained by Mimus, an enigmatic, occasionally spiteful, and unpredictable court jester. To add to Florin's misery, he and Mimus are fed a daily portion of gruel, forced to live in a dark, damp tower, and required to entertain the court on demand. But events ultimately turn for Florin and the other captives, and it is Mimus's intervention that helps make it possible.

The unceasing action and compelling events are sprinkled with lightness and humor through the brilliant rhymes, jokes, and wordplay of Mimus.

Mimus is a stunning novel that will take readers in its grip and hold them until the last page is turned.
