Format: Paperback
'The Two Princesses of Bamarre' certainly did have its highlights, but I finished the book feeling a little unsatisfied. It didn't really have the enthusiasm or charm of 'Ella Enchanted', and I felt like the author doesn't really have the technical skill to compete with the many other fairy tale/fantasy books out there.

The characters are generally flat and bland, and don't really seem to have much life in them. Addie, the heroine, was a bit of a drip, and her love interest had no character, no personality and nothing at all to make him interesting or memorable. The 'other' princess tried her hardest to liven things up, but she wasn't really up to it, either.

The plot was fairly pacy, but it didn't draw me in, or transport me to a different world. And the writing style, while easy to read, was clean and precise like a Primary School kid. I didn't feel drawn into the character's problems or emotions, and she didn't use many interesting descriptions, so, on the whole, I felt that the book lacked atmosphere.

The book's main strength lies in the author's inventive use of magic. She cunningly weaves together old and new ideas to create amazing magical objects like tables that supply food on command, and places.

The plot is fairly standard fairy tale, but the author does add a nice twist at the end, to prevent it from becoming too cliched and predictable.

Format: Paperback
Addie and Meryl have always been the closest of sisters, and used to do plays in which Addie would get the grey death and Meryl would go find the cure. But when Meryl gets the disese, it is scardy-cat Addie who has to go find the cure. But can she defeat her fears?
A tale showing just have far you would go to save the ones you love. Showing that inside us is a power like no other. This book has every thing you need for a perfect book - love, magic, an unlikely hero, and (ofcourse) dragons!
One of my favourite authors and an inspiring book, tellind us to just believe in ourselves and then we can acieve anything.
READ IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I read this book the first time a few years ago and completely forgot what it was called i have been searching for it for ages and only by chance have found due to the fact that I just this minute received Ever also by Gail Carson Levine and finished reading Fairest i decided to check out what other books she has written and found this one! I Couldn't believe it! its a very imaginative story full of enchantment, curses, dragons and fairies it is definitely worth the read it is aimed at young adults to children but I still would be probably be reading it in many years to come! I would recommend it to anyone who has read ella enchanted or loves the harry potter collection!

Timid princess Addie turns over a new leaf when her sister catches Grey Death and changes from happy and healthy to life-threatingly ill.
This lovely story should definitly perk up readers 8 and above.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best books ever! I am 13 and i just couldn't put it down! It has some of everything, adventure, fantasy, action (sort of anyway!) and romance! Addie has to fight dragons, gryphons, ogres and spectres to over come her fears and to save her sister.This book would be great for anyone from about 8 to anything! If you don't own this book then what are you doing?!

I really love Gail Carson Levine. She writes the best fairy tales. For kids and adults alike! This proves to be one of my favorites! It's worth the read. I was surprised at how much I really did love this book! I love that it is a coming of age tale. Addie has to go on an adventure to save her sister. She learns about herself and she just might fall in love too...
