This was an exciting and beautiful story. The characters were engaging and likeable. While the backdrop and overall story were very simplistic they were written very well. This book also had a couple of great messages for young girls. One was to always be yourself, and the other was that when people really love you they love what's inside of you not by how you look. Adela was a great princess, and a great role model. She is not a perfect beautiful dull princess like her step mother wants her to be. She is very low maintenance, has a high self-esteem, is brave, and believes she can be more than just a princess. I would say girls ages 9-13 will really love this story, but adults like myself will also enjoy this book.
This book reminded me of the simple, elegant classics of the past, but with a more updated and modern feel. The characters are sassy and the relationships they develop during the story are the type that you expect to last. I feel rewarded when the characters seem to be working toward a strong finish and in this book, they did.
What made me love this book so much, was the descriptive language of the author. She was able to set the stage for a truly magical story without ever boring me with an overload of pointless banter. The imagery that she produces with her words made me want to keep reading this forever. I could see the flowers and hear the material of the dresses crinkling.
This is a book that I could see a younger or older audience enjoying. There is romance, magic, animals, mystery and laughs to be discovered in these pages. If you love fantasy and magic you can't miss this one.
