Overview

Rhis is sixteen, romantic, a princess of the tiny kingdom of Nym.

Nothing ever happens in Nym, until she receives an invitation to a celebration for Prince Lios of Vesarja, the largest kingdom around.

Lios is as handsome as Rhis hoped, and she falls instantly in love, just like in her favorite songs. But life isn't like the songs--none of her friends are happy, and then there is the Perfect Princess, Iardith, who keeps occupying Lios's time.

Rhis does her best to fix things for her friends, as she pursues her romantic ideal . . . and then the Perfect Princess is abducted.

Of course Rhis must go to the rescue . . . the princes right behind.

This rollicking romantic fantasy is set in the same world as the Wren Books and Lhind the Thief.

All books by Sherwood Smith are on my incredible list, but this one was just as great. I loved that it incorporated ballads into the story and that it showed the culture with so mch color. It was also nice that the princesses were all relateable to some level.

A very entertaining book, aimed at preteen to early teenage girls, but still enjoyable for people above that age. I am rarely surprised by sneaky revelations in books, this one totally had me! Great read, just like all of her other books.

To be honest, it was really predictable, and a rather simple story. I think towards the end there were some interesting events, and overall it was a really pleasant read with happy endings (of course). If you are a Sherwood Smith fan or looking for something kind of simple but fun to read, this might be worth buying... But if you are not, it might be best to avoid it.
