In an enchanted land, Prince George is a young man who has always kept a secret. He, like his mother, was born with the ability to talk to animals, a gift shunned by the rest of the kingdom. In fact, anyone found with the "animal magic" is burned at the stake to get rid of the "evil." When his mother dies, George is left all alone and seeks refuge in his own private world.

Then a marriage arrangement is made with the princess of the neighboring kingdom.

Neglected by her father, Princess Beatrice is shy and reclusive, only trusting her own pet hound. Can George ever get through the cold barrier surrounding the princess and find out what secrets she also hides?

This compelling novel takes a unique and interesting spin off of the usual classic fairy tales. THE PRINCESS AND THE HOUND is full of imagination and will be sure to intrigue readers longing for more than the usual, romantic prince-meets-princess tale. I would recommend THE PRINCESS AND THE HOUND to all fantasy lovers looking for a new flavor.

When i first started reading this book, i was so excited about what would happen. It sounded like the perfect romance. However, the plot proved more twisted, the characters more confusing, and how the book was written in general was rather difficult to follow. i found myself having to go back to previous pages to try and understand what had happened. Even then the book was still good. Then i got to about the last four chapters, and the whole thing totally fell through. Those last chapters were just unbelievably cheesy. I couldn't take it. I was just waiting for the 'And they lived happily ever after' at the end.

    Overstated Animal Magic

    I liked the plot, though the 'animal magic' is overspoken of and the part of Marit turning to woman is simply over the top! Basically, its all about imaginary magic taken from some people's way with animals and the wanting it to be more.
