about

A kingdom beset by monsters . . .
A disease that weakens and destroys . . .
An epic poem and a hero of long ago . . .
A story of danger and desperation.

The two princesses of Bamarre couldn't be more different. Princess Addie is fearful and shy. Her deepest wish is for safety. Princess Meryl is bold and brave. Her deepest wish is to save the kingdom of Bamarre. They are sisters, and they mean the world to each other.

Then disaster strikes, and Addie—terrified and unprepared—sets out on a perilous quest. In her path are monsters of Bamarre: ogres, specters, gryphons, and dragons. Addie must battle them, but time is running out, and the sisters' lives—and Barmarre's fate—hang in the balance.

Gail Carson Levine left her mark on fantasy with her well-loved 1998 Newbery Honor Book Ella Enchanted. Now she has created another shimmering and tapestried landscape of fantasy and fairies. Bamarre and the journeys of its two princesses will burn themselves into the minds of readers, and all will relish this moving saga about two sisters groping their way toward heroism.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the reluctant hero in all of us Great for teaching kids that there is more than one type of hero, and that you don't necessarily have to FEEL brave to BE brave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for younger audience and more! I remember reading this as a child and absolutely adoring it. Reading it back now, almost a decade later, it still inspires me and gives me a warm feeling. A light read, but definitely has good lessons within it! I recommend this for a younger audience and up! This book has no age limit!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A cute read This is a very sweet book. I love new/rewritten fairy tales and Gail does not disappoint. As with her other books, this has a gripping story filled with adventure and danger, a bit of love, and while the ending may not be happily ever after, it's a good one with a message that easily applies to reality. That being said, I found that it was a book I liked, it was decent, but not one I couldn't put down. The main reason I picked this book up was to finish off the series. I'd read Ella Enchanted and Fairest previously, and when I noticed that this book was available in the library, I decided to give it a go. The plot was decently paced, the deadline over the main character's head kept the story moving forward. The characters were all well developed, though the romance did seem a bit forced. I think for me this book would be one I would enjoy more reading to or with an early teen child rather than just for myself. One of my favourite parts of the book was that I had a version that showed some of the various changes made to the book through the re-writing and editing process. It was very interesting to see what the author had originally envisioned for the book and her explanations for the changes she made as time went on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing childrens book I used to check this out of my elementary school library all the time, the librarians would have to tell me to give someone else a chance to read it! I was surprised to locate it at chapters, since previously, it had been hard to find. Really great book for kids.
