The Two Princesses of Bamarre

Hosted by Irena at This Miss Loves To Read.

The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine

This ends my exploration of Gail Carson Levine; if you explore my archives, you'll notice that the past two months of this meme have been dedicated to her awesome books.

There are a lot of reasons for me to like this book: it's about sisters and I love stories about sisters (I have one myself); it has a gorgeous cover; it has fairy-tale elements like magic, dragons, and fairies; it's a fun adventure with a sprinkling of romance.

But I'm actually talking about the end of the book, which disappointed me the first time I read it (don't worry, no spoilers!)  Most fairy tales I read have the exact end I would imagine but this one didn't (keep in mind that I'm not good at predicting the ends of stories).  That had never happened with a fairy tale and I was unable to fathom this particular end.  But now that I'm older and going back through stories (I put this aside after basically only the one read), I can appreciate it.

  1. You have really endeared this author to me. I definitely intend to read some of her books in the future. Oh, an untypical ending in a fairy-tale! I wonder what it can be!

    Lovely post!
