Princess of the Silver Woods by Jessica Day George

To read my reviews of the other books in this series, click here: Princess of the Midnight Ball and Princess of Glass.


Title:  Princess of the Silver Woods  (Princess #3)
Author: Jessica Day George
Reviewer: Karen
Genre: YA Fantasy
Rating: Fabulous
Alerts/Warnings: None
Premise: "When Petunia, youngest of the dancing princesses, is ambushed by bandits in wolf masks on her way to visit an elderly neighbor, the line between enemies and friends becomes blurred as she and her sisters get a chance to end their family's curse once and for all" (King County Library System).
Opinions: This is a magnificent cross between a continuation of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, Robin Hood, and Red Riding Hood. Jessica Day George does a brilliant job of interweaving those stories into a beautiful new creation.   I was fascinated by both Oliver and his internal battle between doing what he knows is wrong in order to take care of people who were wronged by others. I also loved getting to see Petunia again and to travel with her as she finds her own personal strength.   I also enjoyed getting to see other characters we've seen before and see how their lives have changed for better or for worse, and the consequences they now face.  In the end, I cried. . .in a good way.  So yes, this is a book (in fact an entire series) worth reading.
