This is stunning retelling of the Goose Girl, which is a little known fairy tale.
Shannon Hale weaves the beautiful tale of a young girl named Anidori Isilee. Anidori Isilee has been the crown princess for her whole life.
But she's never felt like it. She's not a people person and would rather spend time talking to animals (her special gift) than with humans.
But soon she finds herself no longer the crown princess but just a princess. A princess who is about to set off on a journey to marry someone in another land....
The thing I particularly liked about this book is Anidori Isilee's character. She's not an outgoing or overly independent character as a lot of heroines are. But I think this makes her a character that is easier to relate too. In fact, I found myself rooting for her for the entire book.
To add to this, Shannon Hale writes with beautiful description. If you like fantasy you should read this book!
