I’ve been reading this series by Patricia C Wrede and must say that this writer is good. She’s taken all the old fairytale elements and crafted an interesting and funny series out of it. It’s so easy to read, and really entertaining.
The first book – Dealing with Dragons – is about a not so typical princess who runs away from home to live with the dragons. The second book – Searching for Dragons – is about the king of the enchanted forest, who with the help of the princess (well, that’s what he wants to believe anyway) is trying to find the King of the Dragons. The two have a great adventure and there’s a bit of romance blossoming too.
These books are perfect examples of how a writer can take what’s been done before and put a new spin on it. Patricia Wrede does an excellent job of doing just this.
