    Meg is not an odinary princess. When her father, the king of Greeve locks her away in a tower, promising her hand in marrige and half the kingdom to anyone who can rid Greeve of the witch, dragon, and bandits that rome their land, Meg is outraged. With her friends help Meg escapes from her tower prison and sets off on a quest to warn the dragon, the witch, and the bandits of the fait that awaits them. But as Meg and her friends soon learn not everything is as it seems.

    This book is a very entertaining read. It is refreshingly different with a delightful touch of humer. I loved Meg's spunky personality and her will to never give up.

    Good

    It is really sad tha not a lot of people know about this book because it is really good! I love that Meg isn't the typical princess and that she is determined to decide her own fate. In a crazy way, she is a lot like Merida from Brave.

    The Runaway Princess.

    Meg is a princess that dosen't enjoy princess things. She is very brave and does NOT want to get married. Yet, somehow, her father thinks that starting up a contest in the prizes were her hand in marriage, and half of the kingdom. The things you had to do to win the contest was capture the bandits (who stole from the rich and gave to the poor), slay the dragon (who had not killed anyone in almost a century except for an unfortunate ox), and kill the witch (who was very kind to her frog-princes and made potions to help people). Meg gets locked up in a tower and gets out as soon as possible, to save the misunderstood criminals, with the help of friends. There are many twists and turns, but overalll, it is a great book. I recommend it for book reports. I rate it five stars as you can see. Have a nice happily ever after!

    Fun Read !!!

    A truely fun book to read! This book was about a princess who didn't want to be rescued by some handsom prince and is mad at her parents for wanting a handsome prince for her -she does not want to be locked up in a tower... and she doesn't want to be saved!!!! This book shows true girl heroism... for girls of all ages. I liked the second book even better! This book was a bit boring but it was just a great read - there was nothing at all suggestive in it! Moms this is a great book for younger daughters around the ages of 12...

    I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!** I started reading E.D. Baker's books, and I came across this. I'm telling you Kate Coombs, you should get together with E.D. Baker , and you both could come up with a fantastic series! I would buy every one!

    My Daughtter LOVES this!!

    She's a very picky reader. The first author to really get her reading was E.D. Baker. When she read through all of that series I was searching for another book to keep her going and this was it! I'm very impressed that this new author held her interest.

    I think this book was great. It was full of adventure and i couldnt put it down. I hope she comes out with a sequel soon. I recommend this book to girls 9-14. Boys probably wouldnt like it. Lol.Anyway, in this book theres always something going on, very detailed, and i think it was great!

    This is a great book!

    I enjoyed reading this a lot! Meg is a strong girl who doesn't sit around waiting to be rescued by some 'bread-for-brains' prince. There is also no romance in the book and that's another reason why I like it. This is much more than the traditional princess story!

    Really good book

    This was an excellent book where the princess doesn't rely the least bit on a prince to save her. It could stand a little romance, but other than that, it was a really cute book.
