The second in a series about kick-ass princesses, this book didn't quite flop as a sequel. Which was a relief since I already have the third book ready and waiting for me. A constant complaint I have with books is the pacing. I had no issues with this while reading The Mermaid's Madness. Though it was a hair slow getting started, almost painfully so, the action started up very soon and kept going.

The character of Danielle grated on my nerves and it was nice to see some development of Snow but the three main characters still seem shallow to me. Their "fairytales" seem to define them. It is not written so poorly that you wind up hating characters. You just wind up wishing for a bit more character development along the way.

I don't actually have a whole lot to say about this book. I was bordering between neutral and vaguely pleased. At least I am not dreading the third book.
