Product Description

Anidori-Kiladra Talianna Isilee, Crown Princess of Kildenree, spends the first years of her life under her aunt's guidance learning to communicate with animals. As she grows up Ani develops the skills of animal speech, but is never comfortable speaking with people, so when her silver-tongued lady-in-waiting leads a mutiny during Ani's journey to be married in a foreign land, Ani is helpless and cannot persuade anyone to assist her. Becoming a goose girl for the king, Ani eventually uses her own special, nearly magical powers to find her way to her true destiny. Shannon Hale has woven an incredible, original and magical tale of a girl who must find her own unusual talents before she can become queen of the people she has made her own.

You have to be patient and persistent with this book because the beginning can be VERY slow, but once your past that it is wonderful! It has such a good positive message toward young girls about finding your inner strength to accomplish things you didnʻt think you could, and overcoming our weaknesses. The romance is also clean and cute. A great read for younger girls and a fun fairytale treat for adults.

Really Enjoyable

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful retelling of a classic (and overlooked) Grimm fairy tale. Shannon Hale finds meaning in the original tale and weaved her own magic. The prose is beautiful, the heroine shows growth and development, there is action, suspense and romance. I love this book. I wish I had read it as a teen- it is the type of book that makes you want to stand a little taller and reach your true potential. Highly recommended!
