Fantasy. Young Adult Fiction. HTML:

Rhis, princess of a small kingdom, is invited along with all the other princesses in her part of the world to the coming of age party of the Crown Prince of Vesarja, which is the central and most important kingdom. When Iardith, the prettiest and most perfect of all the princesses, is abducted, Rhis and her friends go to the rescue.

What happens to Rhis and her posse has unexpected results not only for the princesses, but for the princes who chase after them. Everyone learns a lot about friendship and hate, politics and laughter, romantic ballads and sleeping in the dirt with nothing but a sword for company. But most of all they learn about the many meanings of love.

By no means as vapid as the title suggests, but not as intricate in world-building as Inda. Great for young teens -- fans of Shannon Hale or Gail Carson Levine, or even Tamora Pierce. ( )

I didn't love this book as much as I do Crown Duel/Court Duel, but it was still quite enjoyable. The latter parts of the book seemed a little rushed (almost tacked on), but still, the book itself was a captivating, light read. ( )

Not fantastic- Again her political intrigues are a bit hazy, but good fun characters and nice fluff reading. ( )

Interesting - I like Rhis, though she's a little too determined not to be what she's expected to be. The scene with the Perfect Princess when she accuses Rhis of being Princess Perfect (for her ability to appear calm and possessed through everything, among other things) is the most amusing part - having been in Rhis's head throughout, we know how far she feels from being calm and in control! The party never quite gets dull, because the story focuses on people and their relationships. The secret was - well, not a good idea, though it's a standard fairy tale one (and romances). The quest is...rather silly; the aim of avoiding war is good but the idea that only the princesses can manage the task is...well, it fits the "grownups can't do it right" notion (another fairy tale notion). And of course they succeed, through a great deal of luck and magically (sometimes literally) having exactly what's needed to get in/escape/defeat the current opponent... I liked the letters at the end, and the way the party did everything it was supposed to and then some. And it makes me want to read the bit in Wren again where the legend (as opposed to what actually happened) of this story is told to Wren - how Rhis affected Wren's entire world and restructured things. Enjoyable, possibly rereadable but not for a while. ( )

I’ve been meaning to read this for ages. Sixteen year old Rhis is one of many princesses invited to attend festivities held in honour of a crown prince. My first impression -- of a nice-but-unremarkable story with an irritating audiobook narrator -- quickly changed. I got used to the narrator’s voice. I really appreciate Smith’s portrayal of social interactions and of group dynamics from the perspective of someone who is trying to understand why others are competing for attention. And once the plot took off, I was hooked. There’s a very Sherwood-Smith-ish twist that I didn’t anticipate, and I enjoyed that a lot.

I have mixed feelings about the ending. I agree that sixteen is generally too young for seriously committing to a relationship (and being a princess in a fantasy doesn’t change that), but I didn’t completely agree with the decisions made by an adult in response to that and I devoted quite a bit of time to brainstorming solutions I’d have found more satisfactory. But this is a minor quibble, because it didn’t actually change how much I liked the rest of the story. ( )

From the tower lookout in the royal castle - highest tower in all the kingdom of Nym - Princess Rhis peered down through the misting rain at a messenger on the main road.
