Princess Academy: The Forgotten Sisters by Shannon Hale

9781619634855Princess Academy: The Forgotten Sisters (Princess Academy, 3)

For the first two in the series, read here.

Miri is back again! This time she is supposed to be going back to her family on Mount Eskel from her stay in the capital with Princess Britta, but the king has decided that Miri needs to tutor the three royal princesses for a potential marriage alliance to a kingdom threatening invasion. If Miri succeeds, she will win independence for her province of Mount Eskel. After she accepts, she travels to the swamp where the girls live, and is unpleasantly surprised by the terrain and their livelihood. The three girls, Astrid, Felissa, and Susanna live alone and do not have any royal privileges other than living in a linder house. Their allowance and correspondence is stolen and they’ve never even heard from the king. Miri makes them a deal. She will learn their way of life and help them get their livelihood back and in return they will learn history, literature, and etiquette. But when the kingdom is invaded and the royal family captured, Miri and the royal princesses are the only ones left to stop the possibility of conquest.

This was a great book in the series, and I liked it much better than Palace of Stone. The royal princesses were fun and very much had their own personalities. I really enjoyed Miri’s process of learning and bargaining with the princesses, as their life seemed as crazy and unappealing as Miri’s did to them!

I would write more but my first edition of this post was somehow deleted, and my second just doesn’t come close. 😦
