Is It Any Good?

Full of flowery descriptions, constant magic, and dedicated friends, this adventure takes an unconventional princess on a dangerous quest -- and reminds readers that loyalty can be life-changing. The story arc is long and a bit meandering, but readers who love fantasy worlds will devour the intricate descriptions of life in the fairy world. The plot of Power of a Princess drags at times, with moments that seem unnecessary and unconnected to the rest of the story, but Aislin's constant strength, bravery, and loyalty are a nice reminder about priorities. The moment when Prince Rory tries to kiss Aislin seems underdone; Aislin and her protectors fought back, but the story misses a big opportunity to tackle the topic of bodily autonomy, a natural fit for a series so focused on one girl's bravery and strength.
