Princess Nevermore by Dian Curtis Regan

Imagea review by Elizabeth Manthos
 Princess Nevermore follows the story of the Princess Quinella of Mandria, a magical world beneath our own. Ever since she could, Quinn would stare through the wishing pool into our world “outer earth”. Fifteen year old Quinn wasn’t ready for the responsibility of running a kingdom, getting married and producing heirs and a magical mishap sends Quinn to Outer Earth. Without her friend Quinn, she realizes just how much she doesn’t understand the world she’s been thrown into. A world of Halloween dances, strange clothes and feelings she didn’t realize she could have. Only one problem, can she return to Mandria? Or does she even want to?

This book was a surprise to me. I had never heard of it before. I was given my copy of the book by Australian Twitter Queen @lilithia, otherwise known as Stef (check out her movie review blog).  

Princess Nevermore was surprise to me. I had never heard of the book before Stef told me about it. But once I started reading it, I was instantly in love with the story, especially the obvious chemistry between Princess Quinella and Cam, the wizards apprentice. Alas, their chemistry didn’t last as long as I would have liked but I do believe there is a sequel to this book, and I’m hoping when I manage to get a copy I will be pleasantly surprised by the story.

Moving on, the novel itself was well written, specifically for its target audience and was easy to read. In my particular copy (the cover shown above) the writing was larger than your standard novel so quite quick to finish. It was a good read and the characters were well thought out, even the “outer earth” characters with all their simplicity. I was left feeling at the end of the novel that I wanted to know what happens next. I’m hoping I can get my hands on the next novel so I can find out what happens to Quinn, Cam and the rest of Mandria.

I highly recommend to those who like easy to read children/teen novels.
