Review to come I love this book Even though Ella Enchanted is Gail Carson Levine s most well known book, I think that The Two Princesses of Bamarre is her best book It s really exciting, but also well written If you love Ella Enchanted, this is the book for you.

I love this storythan anything Gail Carson Levin This book is so good It did take me a while to get into it The first half or so of the book is kind of slow going Two sisters One is bold One is shy Yawn.
But then in the middle, when the shy sister has to leave the castle to save her beloved sister s life, it gets REALLY exciting Specters Gryphons Dragons Battles WOW I could hardly put it down at that point.
There s also a story within a story, a legend of the kingdom, and it is as well done as the main story.
The almost end had me bawling, thinking about my own sister and how terrible it would be to lose her.
I don t typically get into stories about princesses As Boots of the Coup says, Tell your teacher I said princess are evil How they got all their money was to kill people But I can stomach the feisty, sma I ve grown up with this story To say that it has had an impact on my life is an incredible and unforgivable understatement Everyone knows this author because of Ella Enchanted, but I believe that this book is much, much greater It has romance, monsters, action, magic, and adventure all things that people look for and enjoy in a good book But what really makes this story great is not any of those things What makes it great is how a young woman who is afraid of everything ventures out into a dangerous and terrifying world that would scare even the brave in order to save her sister even though there is a very high chance she might die in the attempt Speaking as someone who has a lot of experience being afraid, this story is inspiring and very relatable in so many important areas Because even those of us who are afraid of a great many ✓ The Two Princesses of Bamarre ✓ I actually liked this one better than Ella Enchanted or Fairest Now one of my fave fantasy stories
Loved the sibling dynamic of this book I read this years ago, but that still sticks out to me.
I love the part where she is about to lunge in the dragon cave and something holds her down and she struggles then when she stops hse realises that if she had lunged, the 7 leage boots would have smashed her into the cave wall I applied this to Heavenly Father trying to tell us what to do and we stuggle, and don t do it Then when it s through, we realise what would have happened if we had done that thing or we do it and we feel foolish afterwords I love the tensity Addie s courage campared to Meryl s.
