A Review: The Princetta
This book is an adventurous fiction novel for young adults. I've never read anything by this author before, so I didn't know what to expect. It was a fairly good book, but different than I expected. The main character, Malva, is a teenage princess who decides to run away from home when her parents tell her she must marry a man she has never met.
But that's where the normal princess story ends. Malva and her chambermaid face many dangers and new lands that test them and their companions to the limit. Will they survive the sea and the monsters within?
This story was different than I thought it would be, but I still enjoyed it. I liked the adventures and new places the characters go. The story had several sad parts, but I think these made the story more realistic and pulled the reader deeper into the plot. Sometimes I felt disconnected from the characters and would have liked more detail about the places and creatures at times. But it's still an exciting and fun read.
