Book Description:
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.

My Review:

Rating: 5/5 stars.

This was an amazing book. I mean amazing!!! I got to beta read Water Princess, Fire Prince (this was my first time beta reading) before it came out and I’m so glad I did.

Clara Mandras is just a normal sixteen year old who wants to go to the Olympics in a few years. Andrew Stevenson (a sixteen year old too) has taken the responsibility of taking care of his three younger brothers ever since his mother disappeared. Both definitely don’t want to be transported to the island Klarand and proclaimed Water Princess and Fire Prince of the world Rizkaland. In a prophecy it is proclaimed that only the Water Princess and Fire Prince can save Rizkaland. For Amber (also known as the Lady Dragon), an evil sorceress, is terrorizing Rizkaland. Clara and Andrew must get over their differences and the unfairness of life to unite and save them all.

I loved every ounce of this book. It had a bit of a slow start for me and took me longer to read than I expected. But, I must say, I had a lot going on at the time. So I didn’t get to read for long amounts of time to really get into it, at least, until close to the end. Then I read like a maniac. It was that good.

Clara and Andrew were amazing characters from the start. I loved each of them for different reasons. Clara, with her amazing skills and stubbornness (I can say I wanted that stubbornness to go at some points, but I liked it too). Andrew, with his leadership skills and kindness no matter how Clara acted toward him. The romance between Clara and Andrew was so sweet and didn’t get inappropriate like some books get. The romance was definitely one of my favorite parts about the book! The book was written pretty well (I even got to help with some of the editing!). To me, it also had a distinctive Narnian flair. I just fell in love with Rizkaland. It was so unique, so colorful. I just wish I could go there… To sum up my feelings: Water Princess, Fire Prince is an amazing journey into a fascinating new world. It contains the attributes of what creates an epic fantasy book: characters that are easy to connect with, sweet romance, adventure, breathtaking danger, exciting battles, and a touch of humor. I can’t wait to dive into Rizkaland again in the next book!!!

I recommend this to anyone who likes fiction (especially Narnia fans). You won’t be disappointed.

  1. I had the same struggle with getting into WP,FP- I think it’s because I really wasn’t a fan of Clara. (I like her better now, but that’s because she matured a bit. Also, she needed Andrew to balance her out.) But like you, by the end, I really enjoyed the book. Great review!
