it was amazing

Book 1 in Melanie Cellier's Four Kingdom's Series! Princess and the Pea is so underrated, but this retelling totally took the cake! The story nodded to the fairytale, but grew a life all it's own--an intricate and thrilling life! The plot drew me in and held suspense and tension in many points. I also really liked the way the book was formatted. Not only was it well-written, but it was well-formatted too, and in such a way as to draw the reader in even further to the plot. I particularly enjoyed the few chapters from alternate povs. (I hear there's a version from Max's pov?! Where and how can I get it?!) I fell for the characters! And I am thoroughly intrigued by Ella's story. I certainly hope that's to come soon! I liked both the MCs and the SCs, which is always a nice touch. The secondary's felt alluring and I hope to see more of them. Many of the characters held a reality to them that I enjoyed. And, of course, I'm totally hooked into this world! The setting and world-building continue to thrill me. I am increasingly intrigued by the political system Cellier has designed and by the laws of the land. I hope to see more of that elaborated upon too. On to book 2!!

Mild violence, very mild romance, no language. Definitely recommend and consider appropriate for even the younger kids.
