About the Book:
In this coming-of-age story set in a medieval kingdom, Andrea is a headstrong princess longing to be a knight who finds her way to modern-day California. But her accidental return to her family's kingdom and a disastrous romance brings war, along with her discovery of some dark family secrets. Readers will love this mix of traditional fantasy elements with unique twists and will identify with Andrea and her difficult choices between duty and desire.
Two Moon Princess by Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban has an incredibly intriguing and imaginative storyline.
The main character, Andrea, is relatively likeable, but at times she drove me a little nuts with her decisions or actions. The story had many characters that I couldn't connect with. The most frustrating of these characters was Tio, Andrea's uncle. From the beginning I thought he was going to be one of my favorite characters, but that thought dwindled as the story carried on. That being said, the world and plot were quite entertaining despite the characters! If the characters had more development and consistency, this could have easily been rated a 3.5. The characters were just my main problem.
This is a good book for younger readers. It is a quick, easy read and worth the once over- the storyline and world building is interesting and entertaining.
