I thought I was going to pee my pants when I found out that Curtis Regan had written a sequel to "Princess Nevermore". I bought "Princess Nevermore" in the fourth grade and have read it several times. The novel isn't a work of literary genius, but it's original, entertaining, and engaging. "Princess Nevermore" is my biggest comfort novel of all time, outside of the Harry Potter series. I have been looking for the sequel for years and was so thrilled to find a continuation of the cliffhanger endi ...more

I actually liked this sequel more than the first, Princess Nevermore, which is usually not the case with sequels. (And obviously I did like the first or I wouldn't have bothered read the second, but I really liked this one.)

We switch back and forth between Cam and Quinn's points of view, and Adam, Mondo, and Sarah are back in the story for a bit.

We finally get to discover Cam's back story and heritage. We also get to learn whether Quinn will bow to protocol or forge her own trail.

After feeling like the ball was dropped re: Cam in the previous book, I was glad to find he had a book of his own. It was a really fast read. I find that I like Cam way more than I like Quinn.

Also, some of the writing really bothered me this time around - overuse of similes, stilted dialogue (especially for the residents of "Outer Earth," and even one place where the entirely wrong word was used. It really pulled me out of the story.

Anyway, it's a cute story for mid-level readers.

After waiting over a decade for a sequel, I was sorely disappointed in this one. It didn't help that I was no longer a middle schooler reading the book (kids aren't the biggest critics while reading novels), but I felt the plot and fluidity of the story fell short. Shame, since Princess Nevermore was great!

Like the first book, this one was cute, but a lot of it just seemed choppy and unrealistic. First, Adam and Quinn, who loved each other, are quick to brush off what they had and move on to the next person (in Quinn's case). What an excellent example to set for young teens. Second, Mondo in the first book mentions that he could not age any faster in earth as he did in Mandria. In the second book, about a year later in Mandrian years he says something on the lines of "Oh, well I guess I age faster ...more

Loved it, loved it, loved it. However, who doesn't like a book that makes what you want to see happen in a story happen. A few twist and turns for some excitement, but mainly a very happy reader. I read "Princess Nevermore" for the first time in 8th grade (so roughly 1998-99). After a lot of waiting for a sequel, and then a lot of waiting to actually remember to get it and read it, I have to say I am very pleased with how everything turned out and connected together. If you loved the first book ...more

Cam's Quest is a cute story, but it was a little disappointing. The plot was very choppy and didn't flow correctly. It felt as though Quinn's and Cam's problems were solved too quickly and too conveniently. The characters also felt less realistic and in-depth than I remember them being in the first book, Princess Nevermore. At some points, they seemed to be feeling one way, and then would have a complete change of mood and feel something else. It was a sweet and enjoyable story though,

A brillant sequel to Princess Nevermore.

Cam, Mikiar's apprentice, goes to Up There to find Quinn and bring her back to Mandrai before her wedding starts. Will she find out that the mortal Adam is really the one for her? Or will she give in and marry one of the courtiers her father has chossen?
Cam embarks on a quest to find Princess Quinn, but also to to find out more about himself.

I really liked this book. It was a tale of love, braverly and discovery.

When I read Princess Nevermore, this sequel wouldn't exist for a few years. I was so excited to find out that Regan had written it to finish the story. I loved Cam's Quest. It was even better than Princess Nevermore.

I really liked this book. It was considerably better than the last book. There so much more learning and self discovery in this book, compared to the foolish childishness in the last book. The ending was wonderful (although, at this point in time, I can barely remember it). :)

This book was good and fun. It has less problems and action so it could be better. It is easy to tell all along who Quinn will marry but more conflict could have made it better. But overall I enjoyed it.

The brillant sequel to Princess Nevermore! Regan tells what happens after Princess Nevermore and once again it was easy to just fall into the story and care about her characters. I really enjoyed this book, and am reading it again.

I thought it was a good book, but the first one, Princess Nevermore, was a tiny bit better. I thought it was good, and i reccomend it to anyone!

This book is the sequel to "Princess Nevermore," and it brings the story to a much better conclusion than the first book. Another fun, light read.
