Two Moon Princess
Author: Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban
Pages: [paperback] 324
Favorite Characters: Andrea & Don Julian
In this coming-of-age story set in a medieval kingdom, Andrea is a headstrong princess longing to be a knight who finds her way to modern-day California. But her accidental return to her family’s kingdom and a disastrous romance brings war, along with her discovery of some dark family secrets. Readers will love this mix of traditional fantasy elements with unique twists and will identify with Andrea and her difficult choices between duty and desire.
I’m so excited to be part of the blog tour for Two Moon Princess. This book really takes the idea of a stubbornly indendent main character and spins it in a unique way that had me addicted, especially during the second half of the book.
Andrea doesn’t want to have anything to do with being a lady, or the girly aspects of her station. I loved reading about her attempts to prove herself to her parents, and her efforts to be true to herself, no matter what others expected of her. She stuck to her convictions even if she risked offending royalty.
Though the book seemed a bit slow in the beginning, it quickly picked up pace until I was flying through the pages at the finish. The contrast between modern day California and the more medieval world that Andrea lives in was nicely portrayed. I liked how the entire concept of crossing between worlds was intrduced, and that the routes of Andrea’s people were tied into this.
Another great aspect of the book is that it is not a love story at its foremost. It seems that every single novel I read is centered around romance, and this was a welcome break. Andrea is a fierce, loyal lead character that definitely struck a chord with me. I can’t wait to read more about her and the rest of the cast of characters.
I give Two Moon Princess 4/5 stars.
Be sure to check out the rest of the tour!
On April 14, Carmen Ferreiro-Esteban will visit the blog and there will also be a giveaway!
