I liked this book better than the first. The characters and situations were much more mature (while still being age-appropriate), and it was a bit surprising finding a book for young girls that dealt with politics, revolution, and ethical dilemmas. All resolved generally as I expected, but it wasn’t your typical fairytale ending, and there were a couple times I wasn’t quite sure how the author would get there.

I really like how Shannon Hale writes these books. There was a little more romance than in the first book, but the idea that you can like (even love!) each other and still wait for the future to unfold without jumping in all the way? A very welcome idea, indeed. ( )

Coming down from the mountain to a new city life is a thrill to Miri. She and her princess academy friends have come to Asland to help the future princess Britta prepare for her wedding. There, Miri also has a chance to attend school--at the prestigious Queen's Castle.

But as Miri befriends sophisticated and exciting students, she also learns that they have some frightening plans for a revolution. Torn between loyalty to the princess and her new friends' ideas, between an old love and a new crush, and between her small mountain home and the bustling city, Miri looks to find her own way in this new place.

Re-read

Following on some months after the end of Princess Academy a couple of the Academy girls have gone to Asland, the capital of Danland. Prince Steffan is to marry his chosen bride next spring and she has invited her Mount Eskel friends from the Academy to help her get ready for her wedding. There is a place for Miri at the Queen's Castle, the foremost institution of learning in Danland, and Peder, Miri's childhood friend, is set to accompany them to Asland to learn more about carving linder. However Marda, Miri's sister, stays behind so Miri can only write letters to her and collect them to be sent with the next trading caravan which will travel up to Mount Eskel in the spring. This is not an epistolary but letters do play a large part in the story.

At the beginning of the book Miri receives two letters; one from Katar

Addressing Miri Larensdaughter, Lady of the Princess,
Mount Eskel

Miri,

This is a letter. A letter is like talking to someone who is far away. Do not show the others in case I am doing it wrong.


and one from Britta

Miri Larensdaughter, Mount Eskel

Dearest Miri,

I am delighted to write to you! Though I would rather talk to you in person and sit in the shade of the princess academy, watching the hawks glide. At least I have good news to share.


I love the contrast between the two styles, which encapsulates the personalities of the senders perfectly.

This was a gentle story and was easy to re-read although it hadn't been very long since I read it the first time. It has a similar feel to Johanna Spyri's Heidi (which I read several times as a child). It emphasises family and friendship; the story revolves around the different types of friendships Miri shares with those around her and her quest to find a non-violent way to balance them all. I like the way, for instance, that Katar's and Miri's relationship has developed from competitiveness in the first book through grudging respect to teasing friendship.

'So ... did she just agree to sponsor the charter?' asked Katar.

'I thinks so,' Miri whispered.

'You think so?' Katar grabbed the paper from Miri. 'If I present this in session and {she} doesn't offer her sponsorship, "I think so" isn't going to save my head.'

'Your head will be fine,' said Miri. 'It's your neck you should worry about.'

'Miri!'


As well as personal friendship the story addresses the love of country and the determination to do the best for it - although different people have different ideas as to the best ways that can be achieved and so there are serious rumblings of revolution which brings danger to Miri and her friends. The first time I read this I felt some forebodings of doom - but Hale does my kind of happy ever afters. We learn incidentally about some of the history of Danland, some royal secrets and more secrets about linder - the stone quarried on Mount Eskel - are revealed.

And it's not just about the differences that Miri finds between the capital and her home on Mount Eskel; I like the way a lot of the girls from the Academy end up finding new life-paths that suit them, that they're passionate about and that they plan to use to benefit their community on Mount Eskel.

Although there is some romance in the story (after all Miri is 'of an age to be betrothed'), it is not a focus and (almost) all the attachments are grounded in friendship and genuine affection.

This one tugs at the heartstrings and there were a few moments when I was cheering on a person who had seemed to be a background character until then. You go girl!

The first half really dragged. I enjoyed the characters, as with Princess Academy, but the story was just a bit too much Hunger Games and a bit too much Les Mis, and the revolution was slow in coming. It felt very predictable. However, the second half made up for it and I'm sad that it's over.

It's been years since I read Princess Academy, but I remember thinking it was delightful and clever. In this book, Miri seems a bit too perfect; everyone is simply enthralled with her and she accomplishes what no other could, yet doesn't have the quirks and faults to be a three-dimensional character. I also found most of the Mount Eskel girls to be interchangeable.

Nonetheless, the ending is hopeful and inspiring and I certainly know many thoughtful 10-12 year olds who will enjoy the romance and intrigue, and for whom revolution is still a relatively new concept. They will adore this book. ( )
