Publisher's Summary

A kingdom beset by monsters... A disease that weakens and destroys... An epic poem and a hero of long ago... A story of danger and desperation.

The two princesses of Bamarre couldn't be more different. Princess Addie is fearful and shy. Her deepest wish is for safety. Princess Meryl is bold and brave. Her deepest wish is to save the kingdom of Bamarre. They are sisters, and they mean the world to each other.

Then disaster strikes, and Addie - terrified and unprepared - sets out on a perilous quest. In her path are monsters of Bamarre: ogres, specters, gryphons, and dragons. Addie must battle them, but time is running out, and the sisters' lives - and Barmarre's fate - hang in the balance.

Gail Carson Levine left her mark on fantasy with her well-loved 1998 Newbery Honor Book Ella Enchanted. Now she has created another shimmering and tapestried landscape of fantasy and fairies. Bamarre and the journeys of its two princesses will burn themselves into the minds of listeners, and all will relish this moving saga about two sisters groping their way toward heroism.

lovely story of a timid young woman turning brave

This is an old favorite for me. January LeVoy did it nicely.

I especially liked her voice for the dragon Vollys. Very cool. I can imagine kids really loving this narration!

Enchanting and Fun

I read this book as a kid and it was so much fun to listen again as an adult. January performance added the right amount of suspense and drama and truly brought to life the excitement in the sisters’ tale. It brought me back to the same emotions I experienced reading this book to myself as a child.

Finally!

I read this book about 10 years ago and have been waiting on the audio book for about a year. This story is magical, beautiful and full of love. It is a wholesome family book. I would recommend it to women who enjoy a little bit of childhood fantasy or to a child who loves fairy tales. The narrator did a great job bringing this story to life. 5/5 stars on the whole thing ❤️
