The daughter of Damar's king, Aerin, has never been accepted as royalty because of people who say her mother was a witch who bewitched the king, then died in despair when she did not bear a son. But with the guidance of the wizard Luthe and the help of the Blue Sword, Aerin wins the birthright due her as the daughter of the Damarian king. A 1985 Newbery Medal Winner.
