I loved the Princess Academy. It felt fresh and original, and it surprised me at many turns. It was easy to root for the likeable, layered heroine Miri.

Unfortunately Palace of Stone did not top or equal Princess Academy. I found most of it joyless. I continued to read only because of my remembered affection for the characters from the first book. The last third of the book is good, and I had no trouble once I got that far in the book. But the first two thirds disappointed me.

I read an advanced reader copy of Palace of Stone.
