it was amazing

This book was a light read for me, mostly taking me a day to burn through. But if you know me, you would know that I would not burn through a book as fast asa that unless I was really interested in the storyline. From the start pretty much, Terry Brooks had me wanting to reach in the book and slap the main character, which as the title suggests, is the Princess of Landover. Ben Holiday is now the proud owner of a teenage daughter, and a very strong willed one at that. She starts off as the character that thinks that everything she does, right or wrong, is within perfect reason and everyone elses logic must be askew if they so much as mention anything to the contrary. When she goes and get's herself sent back from our world back to Landover after being suspended from school for using some of her magic to frighten another girl, which Strabo has a personal objection to,she runs away from home when her father fails to see things through her misdirected lines of thinking. Through her misadventures in Landover while on the road and in hiding, she finds a long lost "friend" of her father's that promises her what she wants, if you are a fifteen year old over hormonal girl that doesn't have very good ears. While in hiding, she finds out that someone the kingdom would rather forget has a plot that could end Landover's rule as we know it. Through her struggles, she has a chance to see herself through other peoples eyes. I think this was a great addition to the series, it had me hooked from the beginning and emotions ran high as I made my journey through this book. It was almost like I was sitting right beside the Princess through this whole debacle. I won't say the emotions were anything good, but for a story to make you feel as much as I did through it, there had to be magnificent writing in the mix. The ending was left open of course due to a character from their past disappearing from their place of exile. Five stars and two thumbs up for this book.
