This book is amazing. Although kind of hard to read and understand at first, it has an amazing ending and shows the strength of sisterly love. It's great. I picked it up because it was one of Levine's books, but read it because it was awesome. The first book ever to make me cry of joy and of sadness. Truly amazing.
this was the best book i read. when i found out meryl had the grey death i already guessed that adelina would find the cure, but i would have never guessed that meryl would become a fairy and fall in love with drualt. i was literally cring. i enjoyed this book very much

When Meryl is diagnosed with the Gray Death, an incurable disease, Adelina must face her fears and go find the cure herself. She knows she will die if she goes, but she will die of shame if she didn't try to help Meryl. With the help of her friends, she goes on her adventure. Batteling ogres, dragons, specters and gryphons Adelina finds the brave person she has kept cooped up all along. With a bittersweet ending, The Two Princesses of Bamarre will show you what being a sister is all about.
This book is about 2 princesses, Addie who is meek and shy and her older sister Meryl who is brave and outgoing. Meryl has always dreamed of finding teh cure to the always fatal diesease called the Gray Death. Unfortunately she becomes ill with it before being able to seek the cure. Addie, who loves her sister above all else, now has to search for the cure. Her journey includes wizards, spectars, fairies, dragons, magic boots and a spy glass.
This book is really good and is fantasy.
I loved this book so much and at one point it made me cry. I love Ella Enchanted but i have to admit that this one was better. The two princesses of Bamarre are anything but alike. Meryl dreams of going on perilous uests and adventures whlie Addie is content to stay at home. Then Meryl is diagnosed with an incurable disease and it is Addie who has to embark on the journey to find the cure and ultimatly find the Meryl within her.
For the second time, congratulations Miss Levine for making another super hit! I loved Ella Enchanted and whenever I go to the library, I look for that book and read my fave parts of it before I leave. Even though this is not as good as that one, since I think nothing can top that one, i still recommendthis book to others and one more thing levine... Keep on going, your books are going GREAT!
the best book i have ever read from that author. I have read two of her books. she is one of the best fantasy authors.i want to get her other books,"The Fairy's Mistake,Dave At Night,and The Wish."this book is good for any age.
The land of Bamarre has a hero named Drualt and two princesses: swordswoman and lecturer Meryl and fine lady Adelina. However, it is plagued by disease, and Meryl is stricken with a potentially lethal illness.
I plucked this book off the library shelves because it looked mildly interesting and because I have always been drawn to stories that focus on the complexity of sisterhood. This story stuck in my mind not for the characters in the foreground, Meryl and Adelina, but for the shadowed Drualt, who is so much more than an folk hero.
Girls who like a touch of faery in their fantasy will enjoy this book for what it was written to be, but careful readers may find something else in the pages, something to touch them, too.
this book is by gail carson levine, the same author who wrote ella enchanted. this book kinda goes along the lines of ella enchanted casue it deals wiht mythical and unrealistic creatures and an adventure taken on by a "brave" girl. so if u like ellad, you'll like the two princesses.
when Meryl is struck with the gray death, an uncurable illness, it's up to her whippy sister addie to save her life.
this is an exciting story that keeps you hooked and turning the pages.
this book was great book 1 of my favorite about two princess and each with hers own problem both are different as night and day as u read there how a princess found courage to help the other the ending a tragic almost made me cry almost.
