Hale weaves an intricate, multilayered story about families, relationships, education, and the place we call home.
Unfortunately, Hale's lighthearted premise and underlying romantic plot bog down in overlong passages about commerce and class, a surprise hostage situation and the specifics of '"quarry-speech."
There are many pleasures to this satisfying tale: a precise lyricism to the language ... and a rhythm to the story that takes its tropes from many places, but its heart from ours.
Hale nicely interweaves feminist sensibilities in this quest-for-a-prince-charming, historical-fantasy tale.
Sheilah Egan (Children's Literature)
Miri yearns to prove herself useful to her widowed father by working in the village quarry, but, he forbids this, thus cutting his daughter off from the bond of the villagers who earn their living carving stone on Mount Eskel. In this unusual blend of coming-of-age, adventure, fantasy, and fairy tale story Shannon Hale gives us a strong girl persona, wicked “outlaw outsiders,” corrupt business dealings, strict “princess trainers,” and a prince in need of a proper princess. Miri proves her worth to her father, the village, the head of the Academy itself, and to the fellow worthy of this quick-witted, hard-working “almost a woman.” The crux of the tale is the “quarry speech” used by the stone workers to communicate over the noise and confusion of the quarry, which is adapted by Miri in her desperation to save the village girls after they have been kidnapped by the outlaws. As usual, Hale ties her characters to the land in which they have been born and to Nature itself. This is an engaging, plain “good read” that just happens to be filled with life lessons about friendship, acceptance, courage, endurance, and finding the right path. Guard against dismissing this fantasy as more of the same old genre; there are a lot of fresh ideas and solid truths to be had in this finely-crafted novel. 2005, Bloomsbury, $16.95. Ages 12 up.

[...] La autora consigue que te sientas conmovida o te rías en las escenas correctas, que en las escenas de tensión tengas los pelos de punta y leas frenéticamente para saber qué va a pasar o si realmente va a ocurrir lo que ocurrirá. Es una historia preciosa, llena de sentimientos, en la que vemos cómo los personajes empiezan a valorar lo que tienen y a pensar en lo que realmente quieren cuando ven su vida amenazada. [...]
[...] The author manages to make you feel shocked or laugh in the right scenes, and that that in the scenes of tension, you read frantically to know what will happen or if it really will happen what you think will happen. This is a beautiful story, full of emotions, in which we see how the characters start to value what they have and how they start thinking in what they really want when their lives are threatened.
