In this compelling and thought-provoking fantasy set in the world of The Two Princesses of Bamarre, Newbery Honor-winning author Gail Carson Levine introduces a spirited heroine who must overcome deeply rooted prejudice--including her own--to heal her broken country.

Peregrine strives to live up to the ideal of her people, the Latki--and to impress her parents: affectionate Lord Tove, who despises only the Bamarre, and stern Lady Klausine. Perry runs the fastest, speaks her mind, and doesn't give much thought to the castle's Bamarre servants, whom she knows to be weak and cowardly.

But just as she's about to join her father on the front lines, she is visited by the fairy Halina, who reveals that Perry isn't Latki-born. She is Bamarre. The fairy issues a daunting challenge: against the Lakti power, Perry must free her people from tyranny.

I enjoyed this story. It was very entertaining and was a real page-turner. The only downside was that the beginning was very hard to understand at first. Levine writes it like the main character, Peregrine, was telling her story from birth to current. Overall, the book was awesome.

This is an amazing, well written story that is a good read whether or not you've read The Two Princesses of Bammare. As it's own book, it has an amazing story loosely taken from Rapunzel with solid, developed characters. As a prequel, it is still all that plus the addition of the connections to Drualt and other elements of Bammare.

​A new Gail Carson Levine book! Set in the same universe as The Two Princesses of Bamarre, which was one of my fave books as a kid! So many exclamation points! Anyway, I super enjoyed this, and the themes of prejudice and discrimination and oppression feel extremely timely without seeming heavy-handed. Nothing she writes will ever, for me, top Ella Enchanted, which is a perfect book and one of my top five all-time favorites, but I really, really liked this. ​
