A Princess of Landover: 02/13/12

Jordan Darymple introduced me to the Landover series in eighth grade when he reviewed Magic Kingdom, For Sale, Sold! by Terry Brooks. All these years later I have just finished book six of the series, A Princess of Landover.

Princess Mistaya has been sent to King Ben's world to attend a boarding school. There's just a few problems with that, she has an adult mind thanks to her mother's faery heritage and a teenage body, thanks to Ben's genes. She gets herself expelled as quick as she can and goes home.

But that's just the start of Mistaya's problems. To teach her some self restraint, Ben comes up with a new plan. He sends her to a library internship at the royal library — a magical building that has been long forgotten.
Here's where for me the book became the perfect fall read for me. When I began the book I was only a few weeks into my own cataloging internship. Mind you, the library I was working in wasn't semi-sentient, nor was it being invaded by creatures unknown.

It was a fun read and oddly appropriate for me at this time in my life.

Four stars.
