Share-A-Book Saturday (3)

This is something I found over on Just Another Book Addict =), and I thought I'd do my own. There are so many great books out there that get overlooked (especially if they've been out for a while)!

Every Saturday, you share (recommend) a book, preferably one that you haven't reviewed yet. It's just a way to get other books out into the blogging world. This is NOT a review.

Today I'm going to recommend Wren to the Rescue by Sherwood Smith.

All her life Wren has hoped for an adventure. Now she has one - with a kidnapped princess, a handsome prince, and a magician. What does it matter if the princess is only Tess, her best friend from the orphanage; if the prince is a youngest son with no chance of becoming king; and the magician is an apprentice? Wren leads the other three over mountains and past killing spells, fighting battles along the way. But then she finds herself up against some shape-changing magic that may end her life as a human forever! (Product description from Amazon.com.)

I read Wren to the Rescue years ago, back when I was among the intended target audience. I absolutely loved it! I got completely caught up with the characters and the story, and I was inspired to start writing my own fantasy novel. While that never went anywhere, and I ended up moving on to other series before the sequels (two of them) were released, Wren to the Rescue stayed with me as one of the books that helped introduce me to (and give me an appreciation for) the fantasy genre.

  1. wren to the rescue sounds like a great read, and i think share-a-book saturday is an excellent idea. :) my suggestion is "the observations". it's not a fantasy novel - just one of my personal faves. :)

  2. This book look familiar to me. I don't think I ever read it but I think I have seen it when I was growing up. It sounds like a great adventure!
