Who is the old woman, and what can she want? Krea's companions argue over whether she is a robber or an assassin. Neither idea sounds very pleasant to the slave girl, who is terribly afraid of being noticed by anybody at all, let alone a robber or an assassin.
Meanwhile, war is brewing in the kingdom of Bracken. And Krea, after meeting the aged woman herself, soon realizes that somehow she is involved in the conflict betweenFolger and the island country of Bracken. For Krea, a whole new world opens up: a world of comfort, companionship, and excitement spiced with danger. As she gains freedom from the collar of a slave, she learns that there is yet another collar that she must wear. Recommended for ages 9 to 12.

E. J.5 Stars Out Of 5August 12, 2007E. J.Nine to twelve-year-olds (and their parents) will thoroughly enjoy this book. The perspective is unique, considering that many fantasy novels focus on princes and princesses. Of course, such characters are included in "The Two Collars," but the story centers around the experiences of Krea, a slave girl owned by a sometimes harsh master. Krea, however, is eventually bought by an elderly woman who, Krea discovers, harbors a number of dangerous secrets. As she learns to trust her mistress more, Krea is drawn into a spy war between the king of Bracken and the rebel duke of Folger, Frederick. Yet her greatest trial of all comes not at the hands of Frederick's riders but when she is captured by her old master and all her good mistress's teaching is put to the test. Parents will appreciate the parallels to the Christian life in Krea's relationship with her wise mistress, and children will be enthralled by her adventures.
