It's been roughly a decade since I read these books. I found them at the local library around the age of ten. And still to this day I remember the story, the characters, the magic and the joy from theses books. They are more than worth their read.

These books are the best fantasy books you'll find in a long time. Full of action and wit they're perfect for young adults.

Oh wow. I read these as a child years and years ago. I searched for the better part of two years hoping that they might come out in nook book form and had given up last spring and today out of blind hope I tried again. I am so happy that they have! After rereading them I find them just as charming as when I first picked them up. I could not be happier that they are more wide spread and more people can enjoy them. If you like a book about dragons, princesses not doing what they are told, humor, a light tone, and excitement I would recommend these books highly. They can be read by all ages, for adults I think it might be a quick light read but really young children may need some help. For me it is stories that stuck with me for the better part of twenty years and still hold my interest.

Unorthodox Princesses, Meddlesome Dragons, and Adventures to challenge the imagination. A lovely and wonderful book.

Cimorene is not your average princess. Her hair isn't blond and she doesn't swoon at the sight of handsome princes, and she certainly doesn't sew, or dance, or sing, or any of the other hundred things a princess is supposed to do. So she runs away and volunteers to be a dragon's princess. Her parents are appalled. Her fiance is confused. Cimorene couldn't be happier. Until the wizards show up of course. Then Cimorene's life gets so complicated that she gets exhausted just trying to explain it to people. Patricia C. Wrede's writing is some of the best I've ever read, and her characters are simply charming. The series is made up of four books: Dealing with Dragons, Searching for Dragons, Calling on Dragons, and Talking to Dragons. Throughout Cimorene's adventures in the Mountains or Morning and The Enchanted Forest, the reader is introduced to such people as a witch with nine cats (none of whom are black), a magician obsessed with magical theory, a flying blue donkey, a stone prince, a fire-witch who can't actually use any of her magic, and a lot of dragons, wizards, and knights. Wrede's world is so full it runs itself, and The Enchanted Forest Chronicles simply allow the reader to look inside for a little while. Rich with swords and magic and daring rescues, I could read this series over and over again and never get bored. This is easily one of my all time favorite series.

I was at a used book store and a teacher had brought in all four of the books from the series. How she could part with them I dont know!! I had finished the entire series within just a few short days! The characters are funny and interesting and each story is about something new. You will fall in love with the Princess who doesn't want to be saved from the dragon's cave. The King of the forest who pulls the strings of the forest to make it do his bidding. The evil wizards who are constantly trying to steal all the magic for themselves. And then in a final battle in Book four a young man who doesn't even know he is a prince will attempt to save the forest from an evil he doesn't know even exist!
