Book Review: Water Princess, Fire Prince

Summary: When the Lady Dragon does come,
Hold fast, do not fear, do not run.
Your Water Princess will fight,
Fire Prince will set all to right.
Each shall come from a Fall,
Their union will save you all.

  Despite the fact that she's on track for competing in the Olympics, and he's practically raised his younger brothers since they lost their mom in a car accident, Clara Mandras and Andrew Stevenson are pretty much normal teens. They have normal hopes, normal dreams, and they live in a normal world.
All this is torn away from them when they are thrust into another world and declared Water Princess and Fire Prince. With no experience ruling a country, meeting each other for the first time, and being expected to fight the Lady Dragon – an evil sorceress plaguing the world of Rizkaland – Clara and Andrew are underprepared and inexperienced. Unless they learn to work together despite their standing opposition, Rizkaland's hope will be lost. 

  What is to come will change their lives forever.

Thoughts: This book. This book! Reading it I felt like Narnia had come to life again, new and unknown, meshing with my modern world! Full of classic adventure, plenty of fantastical elements and energetic characters, Water Princess, Fire Prince is a fun read for all fantasy lovers young or old. And can I just point out that there were children in here? Adorable little children! As an older sister and lover of all things childlike and cute, I really appreciate an author who feels the need to include children in their adventures! Now, this book is a romance and I wasn't too keen on all sweet-scenes but I think it was handled well and greatly respected the decision the characters reach concerning age appropriateness. Over all, an interesting new book with a familiarly old feel!

Content: Perfectly clean aside from some kissing and very mild violence. 


  1. Someone in a review of a different book somewhere, I think it was actually Kendra, said, 'Every book needs an irrepressible dark haired girl between the ages of 5 and 11."
    That doesn't quite fit Jasmine but it's close.

    1. That was me, I was reviewing COURAGE and talking about Makilien's younger sister. And, actually, Jasmine is 8 and has black hair so ....

  2. Well, you were very, very right! I don't care particularly what hair color they have as long as they're cute, which Jasmine DEFINITELY was!!

  3. Great review! I like how you put it- ":Narnia come to life again".
    Also, I agree, younger children in novels are cool. I'm hoping that some of Andrew's younger brothers end up in Rizkaland . . . and that he ends up back there at the same time. That would be awesome.

    1. I agree! I would love to see Andrew's brother's end up in Rizkaland!

  4. "Full of classic adventure, plenty of fantastical elements and energetic characters, Water Princess, Fire Prince is a fun read for all fantasy lovers young or old."
    YAAAAS. Love this book, and I liked your review too! :)

    1. You're welcome! And adorable children in books make books all the more awesome. Especially when you can ship two of them. *evil giggle*

    2. Ah! So I wasn't the only one then? *Joins in evil giggling*
