Recommended For: All Ages
When Arthur's parents were lost at sea, his Uncle Mordreth became the regent for the young boy. Yet now that he's of age, Mordreth seems to have no intentions of relinquishing the throne.
It looks as though Arthur will have to fight for his throne. If only he had more than just his two servants and the old man he met in the woods for friends. So the old man takes things into his own hands and whisks Arthur off to the wedding of a fellow prince, with the intention of finding him some allies.
All is not right at the wedding, however. The groom is missing and the bride has called quits. Where's the groom? Well, he's found a new bride. Now if he can just get her home ...
I read the first book in this series a while back, and just recently, I finally got to read this one!
The writing was good. I mean, there wasn't anything spectacular about it, but there wasn't anything unspectacular about it, either. The writing wasn't the important part. The story and the characters were. I must admit, I was frustrated when it didn't really go from Robin's point of view much in the book. But doing the beginning parts with Madeleine's POV was probably the best way it could be done while making sense.
Bookania is a very...interesting place. It's certainly a very unique fantasy world, and Kendra has made it and the fairy tales all her own. It seems a very light-hearted world, especially when compared to Ilyon. Kendra has done very well in world-building. It's strange how if someone resembles someone else, they look almost exactly alike each other. And there's a ridiculous amount of twins. But that's all part of the world of Bookania.
Um...I'm not exactly sure what the plot was. But whatever it was, it was really good. It's confusing, but good.
Character Development: 5/5
I enjoyed having Robin and Eric and the others back, although I would have enjoyed more of Robert and Rosamond. I like the new characters, especially Arthur. I like Madeleine, but I honestly don't see why she's Kendra's favorite character ever (Sorry, Kendra). Madeleine is a little irritating, actually. But I still like her. I enjoy Robin and Eric together. They're just so funny. And Doranna...
Do You Take This Quest? is a good book and a great continuation of the series. Anyone who has read Sew, It's a Quest should read this book.
