"What's even better than a young wizard surprised by his magical abilities? How about a PRINCESS surprised by hers? The orphaned Princess Benevolence of Montagne is a plump teen royal cruelly caught up in the designs of her aunt, Queen Sophia. The story starts slowly, but builds steadily with the help of a warm, precise reading by author-narrator Murdock. Ben begins as a sulky 15-year-old who uses the book of spells she discovers in a tower room to rescue herself from her aunt's strict diet. She soon learns that rescuing her kingdom is more important than filching dessert. Murdock pours engaging inflections and heartfelt emotion into her reading as she introduces armies, a dragon, and a handsome prince. M.M.C. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
