Hush Donna Jo Napoli Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Melkorka is a princess, the first daughter of a magnificent kingdom in mediæval Ireland -- but all of this is lost the day she is kidnapped and taken aboard a marauding slave ship. Thrown into a world that she has never known, alongside people that her former country's laws regarded as less than human, Melkorka is forced to learn quickly how to survive. Taking a vow of silence, however, she finds herself an object of fascination to her captors and masters, and soon realizes that any power, no matter how little, can make a difference.

Based on an ancient Icelandic saga, award-winning author Donna Jo Napoli has crafted a heartbreaking story of a young girl who must learn to forget all that she knows and carve out a place for herself in a new world -- all without speaking a word.

  • Some flaws for historical fiction...

    By cozykiwibird
    For example, Melkorka speaks of seeing corn in Ireland more than 400 years before it was imported from the Americas.
  • Goodish

    By Hiya!1998
    The book was decent. The beginning sucked but it got better towards the end. I could live without reading this book. The plot was very short and stretched out over 992 i-book pages so it was kind of boring.
