I don't think that the copy of this book that I read was a final copy. It was called the Princess and the Captain. It was all right. It took a very unexpected Wrinkle in Time turn when the travelers entered the Archipelago and I did not like how all the deaths in it seemed not to have a big impact on the story. I liked how the names of places and things were like the real names of places and things, but changed a bit. It made it feel more real and parallel universey. The end was a bit weak, though.

This book is amazing! It's delightfully descriptive, and wonderfully action-packed, with a hint of romance. This is an epic adventure that, though geared towards teens, never loses the charm of traditional fairy tales. The characters are realistic and strong, especially the fifteen-year-old heroine, Malva. The book was originally written in French, but, with the help of Anthea Bell (who also translated the Inkheart books from German), it made a smooth transition into English.
