Being a fan of the Frog Princess books I really liked this book. I liked the fact that you got to see the world through Grassina's eyes. I thought that it was interesting because you got to see what it was like for her growing up, how she met Haywood, and what it was like for her since she was very much like Emma. I think that this book might make a little more sense if you read the other Frog Princess books first, but it would be okay as a stand alone book as well. You should definitely read this book!!

No, this is not a story about Princess Emeralda and Prince Eadric.

This new story, which is a prequel to THE TALES OF THE FROG PRINCESS, visits Princess Emeralda's aunt....as a teenager!

Living in Greater Greensward with her mother, father, and sister, Chartreuse, Grassina is not expected to do much. Chartreuse was first born, which means she will be both Queen and Green Witch. All Grassina is expected to do is to marry a prince.

When the King gives their mother a bouquet of flowers the family curse turns her into a nasty hag and also disperses of her Green Witch title. Now Greater Greensward has no Green Witch to protect them.

While doing a meaningless task for her mother, Grassina hears word of werewolves invading towns and nearing Greater Greensward. With no Green Witch, who will stop them? Its up to magicless Grassina, runaway Haywood, and a snake named Pippa to save the kingdom.

As a fan of THE TALES OF THE FROG PRINCESS, I thought this was a good prequel. The book reads smoothly and gives Grassina more personality than that which we already knew. If you read the books released before THE SALAMANDER SPELL you know the outcome, but nevertheless it's a good read.

The Salamander Spell is the prequel to The Frog Princess series. This book follows Emma’s aunt Grassina and her mother Chartreuse and the story of how one became queen of Greater Greeensward and the other the Green Witch. I don’t want to reveal too much of this story as I truly believe that it is much better to go into this book not knowing anything about this specific story. I really love the insight into the relationship between Emma’s mother and her aunt and her grandparents. This book gives the much needed and wanted backstory to some of the other characters in the series. I really enjoyed the introduction of Haywood and that we get to learn about his and Grassina’s past and relationship as that is something that I was always curious about and had only been eluded to in previous books. I adore this book and it is one of my favorites in this series, I am so glad that E.D. Baker decided to give us a prequel and to explain how her characters became who they are in life in the rest of the series.

I have to say, even though this is nothing like E.D. Baker's Frog Princess series it is sill very good. When people say it was not anything like The Frog Princess series, you have to remember these are DIFFERENT characters ENTIRELY. Well not entirely but different narrator. I thought the book was very good, and I can't wait to read the next one.

this book blew me away. i loved Emma's adventures but I've always wondered about Grassina's, how she met Haywood , and why her sister Chartreuse was jealous of her and the title of Green Witch. if you want a good story with adventure look no farther. read this book and learn why Emma is so much like her aunt. you won't regret it. P.S. i think it was the best book out of the frog princess series.
