Read in November, 2010

I was so intrigued by the title and by the picture of a guy with a sword confronting a bear in a cemetery that I failed to notice that this is the second book of a series or that the protagonist is a guy, not one of the princesses of the title. So this book was not what I was expecting from the cover. Still, I enjoyed it. The hero is an interesting man who grows in wisdom throughout the book as he solves the disappearance one by one of the princesses, and although I figured out the antagonist halfway through the book, I kept reading to find out how and why. The solution to the mystery was satisfying, and Prince Amir's sidekicks were well drawn and interesting.

One does not need to read the first book to enjoy this one. However, I never figured out why Prince Amir loves the boring Princess Eva. That romance was developed in the first book but this book had no hint of why they were attracted to each other.

I liked this book well enough that I plan to read the third book in the series.
