When the Countess of Walther dies at her German estate,
her loyal dwarfess Maria-Barbara is forced to work as a
prophet for a traveling magician, who betrays her by
selling her to the Queen of Spain. At the royal court in
Madrid, Mari finds herself in a bizarre, enchanted world,
a society culturally splendid but intellectually isolated.
There she becomes Maribarbola, prophet to the Queen, and,
her survival at stake, endeavors to outsmart the
Mari's wits and loyalties are tested as she becomes
embroiled in palace intrigue alongside the politically
embattled Queen. When Mari's carefully schemed prophecies
dazzle all of Spain, she and the Queen climb to dizzying
heights of power, a place as intoxicating as it is
dangerous. But even as Mari survives and thrives at the
Spanish court, the loss of identity she suffers from
living a lie makes her question whether she is really
surviving at all.
