Great companion novel for kids who enjoyed Just Ella. Princesses with brains, guts, and determination! ( )

Palace of Mirrors is an OK book. It's not the best written. It's really boring in some parts, but over-all the storyline is good. ( )

It's okay but the beging is to slow but if you get through that it's pretty good book.There are lots of twists and turns secret passageways, princesses in dungens, Kights in trocher chambers,and each one claims to have the real princess. ( )

Nice unexpected twist at the end.
Cecelia intends to assume her rightful role of princess after having been cryptically raised as a peasant girl only to find out her understanding of reality is skewed. Realistic voice; emotions of power, fear, betrayal, jealousy well written. Book on tape is good. ( )

There is a twist in the end. The protaganist had her flaws and seemed very real. It was intersting becasue you really want Cecilia to make it to the palace and be the princess. Could have been more fast-paced. Ended abruptly. AHS/JP

It's a story of betrayal. When you think you know everythihng you read on to confirm what you belive, but then discover secrets among secrets, it's interesting. The story has a variety of twists and turns. At frist you believe you know what will happen, but as the story progresses you have no idea what will happen. There could be more interesting parts. Somehow it seems a bit blunt throughout. The protagonist is 14, but has characteristics of a child. Perhaps she can have a some mor mature traits. The ending was much of a surprise. I had no idea of the Queen's role untilit was later revealed. Very interesting. Could use a bit more action though. AHS/JP
