Torrie and the Snake-Prince by K.V. Johansen

Description: When Wren, a lame pedlar-girl, meets Torrie, oldest of the Old Things of the Wild Forest, adventure isn't long in following. The mysterious minstrel Rookfeather is looking for a hero to rescue Prince Liasis, who vanished from his bedroom on a spring night. Wren thinks she's just a pedlar, no hero, but Torrie knows better, and together they track a goblin band into the Wild Forest, to the lair of a sorcerer. Prince Liasis, meanwhile, has been having his own difficulties, and not just a steady diet of earthworms. One of his goblin-guards decides he's her new best friend and of course a best friend can't refuse to help her steal back a treasure from the goblin lord - who isn't a goblin at all. The prince's escape runs smack into Wren's and Torrie's rescue. Goblin hordes are one thing; an angry sorcerer - and his big sister - are entirely another. And what's a snake-prince supposed to do with twenty-seven knights who've been turned into toads?

Torrie and the Snake-Prince is well-crafted and suspenseful...also lots of fun for readers...
