Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
"Hale maintains her high quality of storytelling, with lots of action, plot twists and lyrical writing...A laudable conclusion to a popular series."
"As always, Hale is a terrific storyteller: she deftly juggles plot, character, and setting; her prose is lyrical yet economical; and the themes of feminism and equality that run throughout the trilogy blossom in the resolution of this concluding volume. Readers will be sad to say goodbye, not just to Miri and company but also to Danland itself."
"Although ten years have passed since...Princess Academy was recognized as a Newbery Honor book, the characters remain fresh and appealing. Readers will welcome this book as they have earlier books in the popular series."
