Reviews & Summaries
Like Princess Academy, this story starts out somewhat simply and (you think) predictably....and then completely turns your expectations on their heads. I loved it.
This story does have a princess in it (not the heroine, though), as well as scholars, revolutionaries, and wonderful discussions of politics and ethics. Since there really isn't any sex, and the violence is subdued, I think this book would be great for kids (mostly girls) ages 10+. Younger readers may not get as much out of it as older ones, but the plot revelations, complex characters, and detailed medieval-style fantasy world will be good for them. Definitely recommended.
