Review: Princess of Glass (George)

Title: Princess of Glass
Author: George
Genre: Fiction, Magic, Princesses, Fantasy
Pages: 257
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars


I am borrowing this summary from Goodreads.com, because it says exactly what I wanted to say, but in a lot fewer words!  Hoping to escape the troubles in her kingdom, Princess Poppy reluctantly agrees to take part in a royal exchange program, where young princes and princesses travel to each other’s countries to make good political alliances, and good matches for marriage.  For Poppy, it has the makings of a fairy tale...until a hapless servant named Eleanor is tricked by a vengeful fairy godmother into competing with Poppy for the eligible prince.


This is the second book in which Princess Poppy makes an appearance, so I suppose that you could call it a sequel.  However, "Princess of the Midnight Ball" centers around Poppy's sister Rose and the wicked curse put on all the sisters.  I am sure that if you have read, or do read, "Midnight Ball" first you will really appreciate Poppy's history.  But it is not necessary to enjoy this book.


This is a book about mysteries and magic.  Ballgowns, cinders, and enchanted glass slippers all make an appearance in this story that may sound familiar, but is entirely fresh and new.  A fun, romantic, and action-packed happily-ever-after story.  And even though I'm typically not a "princess-love story" book kind of girl, I am already hoping for another book in the series!
