I came & read the reviews for this book half way through reading it -- and I agree with a few of the reviewers that the author interrupting the story to explain WHY she made a certain word choice actually added to the charm and was an important part of the story line. I am sure it was purposely done and cute (although my perfectionist side wanted to have her be even more genre-accurate and use even more archaic language). Also it wasn't fully historically based and it wasn't completely modern either.
Overall, beside the typical e-book lack-of-quality-editing issues with grammar/spelling/tense etc in a few places, it was a great little book that I highly recommended to several teen girls I know, and I think they will really enjoy reading it. As others have mentioned, it is also a good candidate for a read-aloud story (especially to younger girls) as well.
Very cute story and I had to laugh out-loud multiple times during the reading of Princess Paisley .
A cast of interesting characters
A try at mixing fairy tales with belief in God
Some good plot points
Characters who often make good decisions based on careful consideration
No so much:
The aithor's constant breaking in to explain a phrase or defend her use of certain language - it got obnoxious quickly to me.
Some less brilliant plot moves that don't seem genuine to the characters and world she's set up, just convenient to keep a story moving along
A lot less telling and more showing would be good
Overall I feel that, knowing from other reviews I read before buying that I might not like it, my expectations weren't too high and I don't feel like I wasted my money or the time on reading a different sort of story, but I probably won't buy more if it becomes a series.
After reading a lot of lackluster free ebooks lately, this one was a breath of fresh air. Well-written, and with a plot I couldn't exactly predict (even though I knew the prince and the princess would wind up together). The book is full of that author-to-reader narrative humor, making it a light, fun read.
My one complaint is that sometimes a POV change would start with a pronoun instead of the character's name, leaving me confused about who I was reading about. Aside from that, what a fun book!
