It was Awesome. I think it tied it all together and it didn't just go on with the story it recapped what had happened because It has been too long since I read the other boods. I think that Petunia is a brave, smart princess and I wonder what the next princess book will be. not this series of couse, it ended. and so well too! ( )

This is the third book in Jessica Day George's Westfalin Princess trilogy, and while it ties the series up quite nicely, I was sad to see it end. Without going into too much details, this book returns us to the same bad guys and (one of the same) location as the first book, though the motivation and situation is modified to fit the events which have happened in between.

This whole trilogy is steeped in fairy tale lore, with some of the classics retold in a similar, but different, world. The names of the countries in these books will sound very like the European nations we all know, but with definite differences. The three books pull most heavily from the stories of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood. (And as you can guess from the cover, this third book is the red riding hood story.)

I really like the characters Jessica Day George has developed for this world. Part of me wants to see more in this setting, though these books have been officially called a trilogy and this one does tie up all the loose ends. It's a very satisfying trilogy, all told. It's definitely on the YA side, and though there is romance, it's very clean (as you would expect from both YA novels and the fairy tales that are common for modern audiences).

One word of caution, though. This is the final book in a trilogy, and while it's technically possible to read it without the other two, I would not recommend it. The second book is almost one you could read without the first, but this one ties up the series arc, and really needs the foundation of the prior books. ( )

Great third book. Wraps up so much. Totally guilty pleasure reading.....just simply fun! ( )

I was actually pretty disappointed in this book, after the former two were much better. Felt the character development was pretty shallow and made some leaps that didn't make much sense. It's hard to do a retelling of the 12 Dancing Princesses because there are so MANY characters, and it was hard to keep them all straight and give them each their own unique personality without making them more caricatures than fleshed out characters. However, I did think Ms. George did a wonderful job of interweaving her take on the Little Red Riding Hood story into this 12 Dancing Princesses tale - it was interesting and fun to read. Maybe I'm getting old and am just expecting too much from a YA novel! ( )

Still a good story. I don't like Petunia as much as Poppy, but her adventures are interesting - I do like Oliver, especially when he finally gets the lead out. Petunia is oddly stubborn about the Grand Duchess; not sure what happened to make her quite so certain she's one of the victims. I certainly didn't see anything in this book to make it so; maybe it happened while she was traveling, or maybe it was a spell - not clear. The roses, I'm pretty sure, were a spell - Petunia's not that dumb. The different reactions, when the princesses are Under Stone again, are quite amusing. And a happy ending - well, aside from the bishop. If the new King was right about what they needed, the new sealing may be the end of the matter - hope so! ( )
