Who discommends:

I haven't read anything yet by Levine that I haven't loved and this was no exception. The main character in here is scared of everything but when her brave sister falls ill, she decides to try and find a cure. Levine keeps throwing you curves, like a "sorcerer" is actually a unique race of magical creatures and "fairies" are not flighty butterfly creatures but powerful creatures that fight and eternal battle of good and evil. Her father is also well-done in his pathetic cowardice. A nice believable romantic subplot that puts this as a definite SFR.--Rebekah (14 Jan 02)

Serendipity, Rebekah. I read this book at the same time you did. THE TWO PRINCESSES OF BAMARRE follows the tradition of ELLA ENCHANTED in being a fantasy story where girls are the heroes who save the day. The extremely timid heroine in the story was a dear, her sorcerer love interest was adorable and interesting, and the entire tale quite charming.--Preeti (21 Jan 02)
