Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a starred review, PW called this fantasy about a magic princess in Middle America "suspenseful and poignant... a real page-turner." Ages 10-up. (Sept.)
Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
If you can accept a fantasy world literally underneath our own, complete with princesses, magicians and their apprentices, and strict rules about contacting our world, then try this one. Princess Quinn of Mondria sees bits of the world above her and is sure that she wants to see more. Cam is the magician's apprentice, the princess's best friend who wants to go with her, but the spell he casts sends her to face modern New York alone. The scene is set so well that the reader can picture the pond underneath a bridge in Central Park, and can almost see the Princess appearing (soaking wet) in front of two modern teenagers. Fortunately they can deal with what they do not understand and manage to hide her in plain sight. Her court dress is not exactly appropriate for school, but she can wear her hostess's jeans and T-shirts. But what will she do about going to the Halloween dance? More characters bring more problems, of course. There is a first love, complete with jealousy, hatred, and finally reconciliation. There is nothing objectionable in this book but there is nothing enthralling, either. It is readable and fun to read, if you like Princess books, have not read too many of them, and are willing to accept coincidences rather indiscriminately—the strangest of which is that it all may have been "arranged" or at least foreseen by a Mondrian magician who once long ago chose to stay in our world. Recommended for fans of the genre.

I really liked this book. I liked Adam and Quinn's relationship. When I found out about the aging difference I was disapointed because I liked when they were together. And then at the very end i was so mad because she left without saying goodbye but still she didnt have a choice. During the the part when Adam went to the wishing pool i wish that Quinn would have at least came out and gave him one last kiss. This book was awesome i read in two days. I wish that another book would out to be the second of this book. Whoever the author is i wanted to tell you that you di a great job on this book.

The first time I read this book was in about 5th grade [high school freshman now] and I could not put it down! I never got tired of it, and read Princess Nevermore about 7 more times after that. This is definatly my most favorite fantasy book I've ever read.

This book is a delightful read! This 2007 updated and expanded edition of Princess Nevermore is really worth the read. It is the same story from the one that was published in 1995, but there are more characters that have been added to this edition, and some of the written scenes have been changed a little and some description has been changed. I really enjoyed this edition of Princess Nevermore, and I was not disappointed with the changes. In fact, I was rather pleased with them. If you've read Princess Nevermore, then I suggest this 2007 updated and expanded edition. If you've never read it, but enjoy fantasy then this book is for you too. Princess Quinn and Cam, the apprentice to the great wizard Melikar, have always dreamed of traveling to Outer Earth. They live in the underground kingdom of Mandria, and the only link between their world and ours is a single wishing pool. Cam reads the spell that will allow both he and the princess to travel to Outer Earth, but by accident the princess is sent alone. Quinn's journey on Outer Earth becomes more than she bargained for. She winds up staying with an elderly man (Mondo) and two siblings (Sarah and Adam). She decides to go to high school while she stays on Outer Earth, but during her adventures things begin to stir up, and nothing is as it seems. She's torn between an important decision. She has many duties that she must attend to in her kingdom of Mandria and her whole life is laid out for her there. But, Outer Earth offers her choices, love, and delight. She doesn't know what her heart wants more. But what happens when danger finds her? I really enjoyed this book and the introductions to the new characters. To name two of them: Cydlin and Gwynell. If you are looking for a good book that has magic, love, and surprise twists and turns then this is the book for you.

Do you like fantasy? If you do then this is the book for you. It's a story that follows a Princess named Quinnella (Quinn). She's not your ordinary princess, however, as she lives in an underground Kingdom called Mandria. While visiting an elder wizard named Melikar and his apprentice Cam, Quinn finds herself being sent alone to 'outer earth' (our earth) with nothing. Quinn finds wonder in this world and finds love too. But there is a danger that even she is unaware of. Can she escape the danger? Does she even want to return home? This is an excellent read. There is also a newly revised edition coming out soon as well, and is available for pre-order on B&N. There is also a sequel written to this wonderful story called Cam's Quest which is coming out soon and is available for pre-order as well. Princess Nevermore is a delight and a real page-turner, and once you start reading it you won't be able to put it down. I recommend this book for readers of all ages. I really enjoyed it, and have returned to it over and over again for the last ten years.

This is one of the best books I've ever read. This book is my ultimate favorite book. I have read this book thousands of times, and still cry at the end, and get mad when Zack came into the picture. To this day, I continue to read this book, I can even do some quotes from it.

I am absolutely in love with this book. I first read it in 4th grade and I am currently a senior in high school. Almost nine years I have harbored a soft spot for this amazing book. I read it for the first time in a looong time today and it still has the ability to keep me in one spot for hours. If you've never read it, get it right now. You'll love it.

This is an Outstanding book!I recomend it to anyone who is in love with fantasy, romance, or to someone who just needs a real good book to read. I have read many of the other reviews, and many people have asked if there would be a second book, in the series. I have recently found out that there is! If you want to learn more about the second book or the author then you can go to www.diancurtisregan.com, I will try to tell this to anyone who asked and gave there email adress, READ THE BOOK!

OMG!!!!!!! I loved this book. I don't wanna give away the ending, but it kind of made me depressed and sad. In my opinion, no word would be able to describe this wonderful book. But if there were more than 5 stars for a rating, I'd choose the highest one. I got this book maybe 6 or 7 years ago when my dad thought I would like it. But at that time, If it had nothing to do with the real story of the Titanic, I wasn't interesting. But now that I've read this book, I'll give it five awesomely big stars.

I'm surprise you people like this book it's stupid. The plot is so unoriginal and it's too short! The characters are one dimensional and it's the most stupid fantasy I ever read. I would give this story 0 stars if their was an option for it.

Princess Nevermore is my favorite book of all time. I've read plenty of books and none of them match up with Princess Nevermore. The adventure was great, and the romance captured my soul.
