Aislin is kicking butt and taking names in this sequel to "More Than a Princess." As a princess, Aislin is given the task of selecting ladies in waiting. Her choices are not all fairies and that ruffles some feathers around the palace. As she works with her family to defeat the mysterious "Her" who seems to be intent on destroying the kingdom, we will find that the varied gifts of her ladies in waiting will be needed and help save the day. Loved the character development of Aislin and her strong ...more

Princess Aislin is half fairy and half pedrasi, she is brave, kind and adventurous. Aislin’s grandparents, the fairy queen and king have decided to return to the human world, but some fairies aren’t happy about the move, because they dislike humans. Princess Aislin starts getting insults from magical creatures who disagree with moving, and soon Aislin finds out that a “her” could be behind it, spreading rumours.

When Aislin is required to choose a group of ladies-in-waiting, she surprisingly pick

Just The Sequel For More Than A Princess. I was super excited to read this book.
When her fairy grandparents decide to move their castle back to the forest and live among humans again, Princess Aislin is there to help. But to impress the humans, it is required that she chooses a loyal group of girls to help her as she goes against evil sorceresses and bloodthirsty trolls.
In this book, I noticed that Aislin doesn’t use her power as much as book one, More Than a Princess. It could possibly be that

Power of a Princess is the second book in the More than a Princess series by E.D. Baker. I do recommend reading the series in order, but newcomers could probably catch up fairly quickly. It is currently scheduled for release on November 19 2019.

Aislin is more than just a princess. Born to a fairy king and pedrasi queen, she's strong, smart, and brave, with magical gifts she's only beginning to discover. Aislin has spent her whole life keeping her family's gifts hidden from the non-magic folk wh

I was so excited to receive an ARC of this book and I devoured it in a matter of mere days, an astonishing feat for a first-year graduate student. In this sequel to More Than A Princess, we follow Aislin as she adventures with her grandparents through the land of fey and into the human world. This story centers around the move of the fairy king and queen to the human world now that the events of the previous story allowed them to bring magic back to the human kingdoms. Aislin is excited to be wi ...more

E.D. Baker returns with another book from the series More Than a Princess. Princess Aislin goes to the mountains to explore and make a map for her grandfather. After she'd finished she goes to see the fairy king and queen who are deciding to move back to the human world. The book has a slow start but it is mandatory for the story because otherwise the story wouldn't make sense. Most of the fairies are moving back to the human world so Aislin needs ladies in waiting. She picks a group of girls an ...more

Right before I read POWER OF A PRINCESS , I read THE GIRL WHO FLEW WITH DRAGONS, which has a lot of adventure and action in it. By contrast, POWER OF A PRINCESS is a lot more of an internal story. There’s still action, but a lot of things happen through Aislin puzzling them out in her mind or through dialogue with others, so the pacing is very gentle.

The story is also very family-oriented. Aislin spends time with her parents and grandparents, and it’s clear she has close relationships with all o

[I received an electronic review copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.]

This was a fun sequel. I enjoyed the first book in this series, and once I got back into the characters and the rhythm of the story in this one, I really enjoyed it. Aislin and her "mestari" (ladies-in-waiting/guards) are terrific. There's a great emphasis in this on character qualities like loyalty, kindness, etc. No cliffhanger, but there are threads that will carry into

Oh I enjoyed this so much! I was curious how I would like because I remember being a bored at parts of more than a princess. I was also in a reading slump where I couldn't read a book without an audiobook. This book pulled me out of my slump! It drew me in from the very beginning and I really liked learning more about this world. I think it's such a cool world and I love all different elements of it. I love aislin as a main character. She's so strong and smart and willing to accept help but isn' ...more

Princess Aislin has recently returned to the magical world from the human world. Her grandparents, the king and queen of the fairies have decided to relocate their castle and court back in the human world. Many fairies are happy about returning to their former location, but others are not and many appear to blame Aislin. A mysterious fairy referred to as "She" is spreading misinformation and distrust among the fairies and humans. Aislin, who is discovering more about her magical abilities, and h ...more

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a review.

The back cover promised an "adventurous tale" and I am sorry to say that just is not true. It was cute and I was never bored but this is not one of Baker's best books. I think the first one in the series was better.

I liked that it focused on female friendships. I did not like that the girls hardly did anything. I prefer books where stuff actually happens. The weak plot, lack of excitement and very rushed climax did not make this an engagin

Power of a Princess is the sequel to More Than a Princess. It is necessary to read the first book to understand the sequel. Power of a Princess is very much like it's prior novel, More Than a Princess. They both have about the same main characters and basic plot. In Power of a Princess, Aslin and her mestari (renamed ladies in waiting) take on an old enemy of the fey. Her mestari is made up of many different fey, including characters she met both in this book and in the previous novel. Overall, ...more

“Power of a Princess” is the second book in the “More Than a Princess” series. As fairies are moving back to the human territories rumors arise, causing trouble for Aislin. Journey with Aislin and her friends as she finds the true meaning of girl power, and teamwork. This book is great for middle and elementary students. I loved the story, especially how you got to learn more about the characters as the story progressed.
I received an advanced copy, but all opinions are my own.

I shared this book with my 9-year-old daughter and we enjoyed reading this out loud to each other. E.D. Baker continues Aslin's story in Power of a Princess in a fun, thought-provoking way that all ages can appreciate.

Thank you to NetGalley for my copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

This is the perfect companion to MORE THAN A PRINCESS. Filled with adventure, girl power, and interesting twists--this action packed middle grade will keep kids turning the page. I did however, feel like this book was not quite as good as E. D. Baker's other books. ...more

"Power of a Princess" is an unbalanced mashup of vivid scenic descriptions and juvenile thoughts marred by unbelievable character tone and vocabulary. Hard pass. ...more

I usually enjoy E. D. Baker's books, but this one fell a little flat for me. I really wanted to like it because I loved the first one. The plotline was meh and the characters were just ok. ...more

Princess books are waning in popularity in my library, but it's hard to go wrong with one of Baker's titles.

I enjoyed this book so much! My daughter is 6, and even though she is in first grade, this was actually an easy read for her. From the first few pages on Aslin quickly became a character that she grew to love. This is a series that I am looking forward to continuing with my daughter.
