"I couldn't stop! Princess Rebecca really seems to have matured and helps others mature also. There are very funny moments that caught me laughing, and very poignant moments that stole a tear. This is actually a story about a Princess becoming a Queen. But it is essentially the story of a woman becoming a woman." –Songbird
Princess Rebecca never expected to agree to an arranged marriage–or to wearing the queen's crown. But now, to secure a peaceful future for the Silver Fairy Tribe, she faces what may well prove to be an impossible situation. She has also agreed to let the Citizen's Council choose her husband from three, carefully selected suitors: Edward, an old friend and son of the traitorous Count Bullierd; Alfred, the arrogant son of crown-seeking Duchess Beatrice; and Hugh Lawson, a Plant Fairy half-prince who already loves Rebecca.
Peace in the tribe is already coming at a high price, but evidence of a pirate build-up complicates matters further, requiring cooperation from each of the four tribes against the most cunning blackguard of them all.

The second book is even more exciting than the first! "Check out" this new, exciting fantasy series, created with older elementary and middle school age children in mind! These are great chapter books and are good for Summer Reading Programs! It is time for King Nathaniel to "step down" and yield his Crown to the next chosen King of the Silver Fairy Tribe chosen by the Council of Citizens. The King must have royal bloodlines. Since King Nathaniel only has daughters and only one is single, Rebecca's chosen husband will become king. However, she receives not only one suitor but three - the Council of Citizens will decide who. The problem is, Rebecca despises one, is childhood friends with another, but her heat belongs to the third. Will they concede to the decision of the Council, for the good of the tribe, and have to choose separate paths He is least likely to be chosen. The most likely, she will simply have to learn to like. There are many events and procedures they must each experience to prove their abilities and qualifications to rule. Grave decisions must be made. The book successfully progresses from one scene to another. There is plenty of action and adventure. This is especially interesting to girls. Rebecca has to prove herself an equal to the male population in many ways. The ending was to abrupt and although was leading to the next saga, was still too incomplete. The "good guys" were very likable and the others caused to reader to experience varying degrees of like and dislike. The surrounding backdrop was very well portrayed. The book cover is simple yet applicable. It would have been more effective if colored in silver. Therefore my review of this book offers a Four Stars rating. *This book was gifted to me by the author in exchange for an honest review, of which I have given.
