When Constance tries to make friends with a young girl who in in love with the Prince and finds a jealous girl instead she is heartbroken. She feels she has to do something to make things right and learns that sometimes things are out of your hands. I think the thing I enjoyed the most was the way God was woven into the plot. This is not an in your face, preach at you type of book. You are subtly shown their faith. It comes through in the way Prince Drinian tries to help his people and even his enemies. I loved the story of how they received the first Bible on their planet. That was something else that was different from most time travel books. The character is not transported back in time so much, but to another planet. I agree with the blurb that at times I felt like the story had a Chronicles of Narnia feel. To me this young lady has great talent and definitely understood the writing style of C.S. Lewis. However, I honestly loved this one more and that is saying a lot since I am such a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia. This is only the first book so I am hoping she writes quickly, since this one just came out August 2. I will be waiting enthusiastically for the second book. I need to know if Constance and Prince Drinian will meet again.

What did I like? I think that what I liked the most was the main characters, Constance, Drinian and Woodphere. They are smart, handsome/beautiful, stubborn, funny, loving and full of life. Watching the interaction between Constance and Drinian was so funny. Their bickering was endearing and so real.
What will you like? This is a very developed storyline full of action, twists and turns. Every time they did something they got into some kind of trouble. Their adventure together was exciting and left you with a lesson learned. I especially liked the moral lessons that were included with small references to their faith. Very vivid descriptions keep you fully planted in their surroundings and actions. I even felt yucky after they rode through the swamp.
The magic of the kingdom was refreshing and the interaction of Drinian and the people of his kingdom was awesome. Having a king that was caring and loving would have been great. The other thing I really loved about this book was the love and respect between Drinian and Woodphere. It's something the youth of today are losing and its a shame.
This is a book that I would recommend for all ages and one that I will be looking forward to the next book. What can I say, Constance and Drinian have stolen my heart.
