The Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine, Review by guest teen reviewer, Nyia

Please welcome our Teen Guest Book Reviewer, Nyia. Here's her review.

The Princesses of Bamarre was an enchanting tale that I simply adored. There was adventure, romance, and an unsuspected ending. The creatures in the book were different then you would imagine them to be and that is why the adventure was so enchanting. I loved how the author made the book partly predictable, but different at the same time. I also liked how the author wrote it in first person, but in a way that you could know what all of the main characters were doing. The only thing that made me stumble in my reading was that there were so many quotes from the book Drualt. Even though they were overdone, as you read throughout the book, you find out the purpose of the influence of Drualt. I would give this book a three out of five… only because of all the Drualt quotes. Hey, you might like the way that they blend into the story and might think the book deserves a five, so just read it.
