Review: PRINCESS OF GLASS (Twelve Dancing Princesses, Book 2) by Jessica Day George (Bloomsbury, 2010)

From AmazonHoping to escape the troubles in her kingdom, Princess Poppy reluctantly agrees to take part in a royal exchange program. She travels abroad hoping to find better political alliances and perhaps a marriage. But thanks to a vengeful fairy, Poppy's happily ever after gets complicated. This companion to Princess of the Midnight Ball will delight readers with action and romance.

Audience: YA
Genre: Fantasy, Fairy Tale Retelling
Length: 272 pgs

Rating: *****

Review: Princess at the Midnight Ball had been on my list for a while and I read it almost two years ago without realizing there were more! PRINCESS OF GLASS came on sale for Kindle about a week ago, so I went over and bought it. I loved it even more than the first one. I loved how Poppy was strong and capable and smart, how she figured stuff out and connected things logically! And yet she's so fabulously flawed too. Perfect. Again, while the main characters like Poppy and Prince Christian are fantastic, the side characters really shine too. Dickon, Marianne, Roger, and Elanora all come together to make the book amazing. One reviewer complained about Elanora's story taking over the main plot, but I disagree. All the plots and subplots worked perfectly together.

Try this. If you like fairy tales, read one of my favorite Shannon Hale books, FOREST BORN, the 4th Book of Bayern.

About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
