Overview

A POSSE OF PRINCESSES

Rhis, princess of a small kingdom, is invited along with all the other princesses in her part of the world to the coming of age party of the Crown Prince of Vesarja, which is the central and most important kingdom. When Iardith, the prettiest and most perfect of all the princesses, is abducted, Rhis and her friends go to the rescue.

What happens to Rhis and her posse has unexpected results not only for the princesses, but for the princes who chase after them. Everyone learns a lot about friendship and hate, politics and laughter, romantic ballads and sleeping in the dirt with nothing but a sword for company. But most of all they learn about the many meanings of love.

Sherwood Smith is the author of over 25 books, in particular stories for children and young adults. She has been writing fantasy since age eight, and her best known novel CROWN DUEL is currently in its ninth printing.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 7-10- In this delightful novel, 16-year-old Princess Rhis travels from her small mountain kingdom of Nym to the large kingdom of Vesarja for a party in honor of newly named Crown Prince Lios. While there, the intelligent and independent teen takes a leading role in a quest to rescue an abducted princess and finds herself drawn, not to the handsome prince or one of his royal peers, but to the prince's clever, witty scribe. Readers familiar with the author's popular Crown Duel (1997) and Court Duel (1998, both Harcourt) will enjoy the similar setting and theme, and won't be too surprised when plucky Rhis discovers that things aren't always as they seem. This book strikes a far better balance between character development and plot than the earlier tales, and it ends with hints of a sequel. Smith's humorous narrative, colorful descriptions of palace life, and fully realized characters will appeal to romance and fantasy buffs alike.-Leah J. Sparks, formerly at Bowie Public Library, MD

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.
