Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5–8—Action and adventure abound in this fantasy novel about a young woman whose life is upended when she learns the truth about her past. Set in the same world as Levine's The Two Princesses of Bamarre, but generations earlier, this story follows the struggles of 15-year-old Peregrine (Perry), the adopted daughter of the powerful Lord Tove and Lady Klausine. Perry is socially awkward but athletically gifted and craves attention from her stern Lakti parents, members of the ruling class who dole their affection out in small doses. Just before her first trip to the battlefield, Perry is visited by a fairy who tells her that she is not part of the Lakti ruling class but Bamarre born. Bamarre people are oppressed by and made to serve the Lakti, who treat them with disdain and tell stories of their weakness. When Lord Tove discovers the truth about Perry's birth, he imprisons her in a tower. Armed with magical seven league boots, Perry escapes and begins a new life. While living in disguise with her Bamarre birth parents, she resolves to rescue her newfound people from the tyranny of the Lakti, eventually sparking a rebellion. Levine plays with the "Rapunzel" story here, giving Perry magical hair and placing her in a familiar medieval setting. Despite a few moments of awkwardness in the text, the action moves along swiftly and Perry's moral awakening is ultimately satisfying. VERDICT With its relevant commentary on race and prejudice and its strong female lead, this newest addition to Levine's oeuvre will appeal to the author's followers and fantasy fans.—Kristy Pasquariello, Wellesley Free Library, MA


“In her usual witty, magical style, Gail Carson Levine has built a tale of resilience and rebellion that feels more timely than ever... Readers both familiar and new to Levine’s storytelling will devour this tale and cheer its stunning conclusion.” (Soman Chainani, New York Times bestselling author of the School for Good and Evil series)

★ “Levine riffs gently on “Rapunzel” and delivers an arch appraisal of discrimination and bigotry, cloaked in a magical, medieval, vaguely European fairy-tale setting. A captivating and charming adventure sure to please young readers and longtime fans.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Perry’s struggle to reconcile her father’s love for her with his deep hatred of the Bamarre resonates, as does her burgeoning and nuanced definition of strength. Her growing awareness of prejudice and ethnocentrism is insightful and believable; readers will easily connect her journey to their own experiences.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Levine slips seamlessly back into the world of The Two Princesses of Bamarre (2001)... This balances elements of Rapunzel and a smart, timely exploration of the prejudices that exist between people, and fans of Levine will rejoice to watch the journey of another strong, flawed heroine.” (Booklist)

“With its relevant commentary on race and prejudice and its strong female lead, this newest addition to Levine’s oeuvre will appeal to the author’s followers and fantasy fans.” (School Library Journal)

“A clear set up of rights and wrongs, a sympathetic protagonist, and a sweeping magical setting—there’s a lot that existing Levine fans will recognize and appreciate here, and new readers will be pleased to learn that the author has plenty more for them to enjoy.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
