Great book, and I love the characters!

Princess of the Silver Woods is a sequel to Princess of the Midnight Ball. This book focuses on the youngest of the twelve princesses, Petunia. She is riding through the forest when she is kidnapped by a clumsy bandit gang. These “wolves” are the Robin Hoods of this novel; they steal from wealthy travelers and give to the poor. Initially, Princess Petunia eagerly escapes these bandits but later realizes that the elderly duchess she is visiting is much more dangerous. I recommend this book to all children because it is a fun, easy read. On a scale of 1 to 5, this book is a 5 because it had a fresh plot and fun characters - truly an amazing twist on the classic Red Riding Hood.

This book had a really good plot. It was a bit dark for my taste. I enjoy books like this just with less... dark.

You must read the other two novels in the series first. I didn't and therefore the book felt like a wrapping up instead of a standalone and since you don't get to know the characters it feels like a flat read.

I love this book. I read them in order and thought this one absolutely summed up the others. It was the perfect final book, even if there was a smidge of hope for yet another from me, but it was still enjoyable!

Really good one of my favourites, but dang I didn't know it was the last one and I'm going to need to read the first ones last.

This was a great book with lots of interesting characters and a great plot that pulls you in. This was a fairy tale retelling based on a combination of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses", "Little Red Riding Hood", & "Robin Hood". The main influence came from "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" with details from "Little Red Riding Hood", & "Robin Hood" thrown in along with the authors own original additions to make a very entertaining story. This was the third book in it's series however I have not read either of the previous two and had no problem understanding and enjoying this one although I am sure reading the other two would add to and give a fuller understanding to this one. I loved reading about how Petunia and Oliver met and watching how their relationship grew throughout this book and also enjoyed seeing how Petunia and her sisters interacted with one another. I am definitely planning on reading the first two books in this series as well as other books by this author.
