    I love The Two Princesses of Bamarre, so I was super excited to hear that GCL was writing a prequel to it. I was not disappointed, and it was very fun to be back in this world, and to get to see young Drualt in action. I liked Perry a lot, and found her journey interesting and believab...

    I haven't heard any Gail Carson Levine in ages--maybe 20 years? Rereading her other works beforehand would've no doubt made me appreciate this book more, but since this is a prequel anyway, I didn't feel the lack too much. This was a sweet, fun story with great character development an...

    Gail Carson Levine is one of my favorite fantasy writers. I was riveted to this story from page 1. I loved the character of Lady Mother, even though she stole the Bamarre children. The other characters were well developed as well. Just enough magic to keep it hopeful, and a bit of humo...

    This one has a very different feel than Levine's previous books. Lost Kingdom is a lot more violent and grim, whereas the danger in her other books is balanced by warmth and magic. I sometimes wanted to stop reading to avoid the grimness. Nonetheless, I enjoyed watching Perry change he...

    I was gonna give this one star (only for gail carson levine would i have trudged through such an awful book) but then i looked in the mirror and realized maybe it's my fault for reading books meant for ages 8-12. and maybe i'll just have to accept that nothing will ever be as good as e...

    I have a bit of a sense that Gail Carson Levine can do no wrong - as my all time favorite childhood author I have yet to read anything by her that I don't just enjoy. It was fun to revisit the fantasy world she built in "The Two Princesses of Bamarre," and the fact that her books are s...

    THE TWO PRINCESSES OF BAMARRE ISN'T JUST MY FAVORITE GCL BOOK, IT IS ALSO ONE OF MY FAVORITE BOOKS *EVER*. THE FACT THAT I HAVE ANOTHER BAMARRE BOOK IN MY HANDS IS JUST THE BEST FEELING. SORRY FOR THE ALL CAPS. I JUST HAVE ZERO CHILL AT THE MOMENT. ...

    Although I have not re-read it in several years, The Two Princesses of Bamarre has always been my favorite Gail Carson Levine book, so I was ecstatic to learn Levine was publishing another book about Bamarre this May. The slight catch: This stories takes place many years before The...

    This was pretty good. Very much like its sister. I recommend you read before ?the Two Princesses of Bamarre? This book irked me as well seeing how the two kingdoms fought and how the lakti treated the bamarre. Ugh it disgusted me. I felt it was much more thought out and...

    This all the elements of a great middle grade story-- a smart, tough girl protagonist, with a hero's journey to conquer and some serious questions about her family, friends, and place in the world. Plus a teeeeensy bit of [super age-appropriate, non-story-dominating] romance. As a bon...

    My all time favorite book of Gail Carson Levine's is The Two Princesses of Bamarre, so when I heard about this book I was ecstatic. This book is as good as a prequel gets. I am not at all disappointed. To me Perry was a really good main character. Her struggles as well as her strengt...

    I'm SCREAMING LMAO gail carson levine wrote a prequel 16 years later and recast the male-centered legends* in two princesses of bamarre (a book I LOVE) into a female-centric story that deals well with oppression of and prejudice against an entire people, digs into adoptive, biological,...

    I?ve really been backlogged on my reviews. The bar exam is killing me, guys. I enjoyed this one. It can?t hold a candle to the companion book (which came out SEVENTEEN YEARS before this one did), The Two Princesses of Bamarre, which is one of the most heartfelt, sincere, and hu...

    WrensReads Review: I liked this! Peregrine strives to live up to the ideal of her people, the Latkis. They are all about strength and war and nothing about the arts and the comforts like those STUPID Bamarres. They have concurred those weak-minded worthless people and have ma...

    What is it about Gail Carson Levine's writing that is so enjoyable? I don't know. But I always love her novels, despite the fact that there's not much particularly special about this one. I can't help but compare this to masterpieces like Fairest, Ella Enchanted, andThe Two Princes...

    Gail Carson Levine wrote another book!!! From her Goodreads account, I knew a little bit about this book, but I forgot to pin down the release date so it was a nice surprise to find it at the library. *takes a moment to admire the pretty cover* It?s probably already obvious, b...

    Wow. I might like this story even better than Ella Enchanted. I feel like, also, as the years go on, Gail Carson Levine just keeps getting better and better at writing, which is impressive, because she was already so good from the beginning! ...

    Thank you, dear Gail Carson Levine, for another winsome fantasy novel! The Lost Kingdom of Bamarre is a prequel to The Two Princesses of Bamarre (which I read when I was younger and loved), but it stands alone. The writing style was impeccable and captivating the whole way through, and...

    It's no secret that I am a big fan of Gail Carson Levine's work. I read all of her books when I was in high school and college. Just a few months ago, she published a prequel to The Two Princesses of Bamarre. I haven't read that book in many years, so my memory of it is vague, but ther...
