Reviews for The Two Princesses of Bamarre (2 vol.)
5Levine's evocative writing style has matured, becoming more flowing and poetic in her dialogue and descriptions. The reader is given very human kingdoms mixed with otherworldly beasts and creatures, dragons, and griffins etc. If you are one of the many people who cheer for strong heroines, then pick up this book immediately!
5Princess Addie of Bamarre is fearful of everything imaginable: spiders, gryphons, ogres, specters, and, most importantly, that her sister will one day marry and leave her alone. Princess Meryl is valiant and fearless: a girl who loves playing games of daring sword fights and rescues. Both sisters couldn't be more different. When a debilitating plague called The Gray Death infiltrates the Kingdom of Bamarre, Meryl vows to find a cure for the dreaded disease. However, the deadly plague has other plans. When Meryl is infected, it is up to Addie to find courage and seek the cure for her sister's illness. Along the way, Addie will encounter malevolent yet deceptive specters and other monsters who will stop at nothing to keep her from completing her mission. Armed with some unusual objects and with the help of some mysterious friends, Addie must find courage to fulfill her destiny. This story was engaging from start to finish. Addie was wonderfully depicted. I related strongly with this character because she was so timid yet ultimately strong. Meryl was not as easy for me to relate to, but she was a likable foil character and enhanced Addie's attributes. I loved the tools that Addie took on her quest, particularly the magic tablecloth and the moily herb. I also thought that Ms. Levine's explanation of the origin of sorcerer's and their function within the world of Bamarre was very creative. My favorite scene of the book was Addie's capture and ultimate confrontation with the dragon called Vollys. This monster was frightening yet strangely empathetic. Please give this unforgettable novel a chance. If you love books with strong heroines, then this is definitely the book for you. God bless you all.
