Publisher's Summary

A princess who has lost her mother and father finds herself in a terrifying world that urgently needs a queen.

Sophia is smart, beautiful, and accomplished, a beloved princess devoted to the people and to reading books. The kingdom is hers, until she is plunged into a nightmarish realm populated by the awful beasts she read about as a child.

The beasts are real. And so is the great army marching on her castle. The people look to Sophia for protection. They will all perish unless she can unlock an ancient secret as profound as life and death itself.

Sophia, Princess Among Beasts is a fabulous adventure, and a stunning mystery. Here again is proof of why James Patterson is the world's most trusted storyteller.

Not too excited -

Nothing like any other James Patterson I’ve read. I’m not up on the monster theme nor the terminology. Difficult to get into.

No as good as expected

This book was a major let down. I was expecting something awesomely amazing. It was an amazingly disappointing disaster.

Disappointing

Slow start. Ridiculous finish. Many unanswered questions. The first half of the book dragged. The main character, a medieval princess who somehow had developed the ideas of a modern liberal, seemed out of place. Despite her feminist ideals and training in swordplay and knife fighting, she nevertheless repeatedly fell back into the damsel in distress trope. Things picked up later, when wierd and woderful things started happening, most of which were never adequately explained, nor explained at all, for that matter. I confess they did manage to surprise me with the ending, which I thought I had figured out. But I was expecting some semblance of a logical conclusion to tie up the loose ends. Instead they threw all logic to the wind, producing a deus ex machina ending that left all the loose threads dangling.

Good take on myths and Legends.

James Paterson tried fantasy of mythology. Gemma Dawson is an outstanding narrator. The story was different.

another hit!

James Patterson never let's me down! I love the mix of fantasy and medieval style. Nothing but the best from this man, hoping for a series from this story!

Not one of James's best , fantasy is not your genre.

I am not a lover of fantasy books it took me three times to get through the Hobbit but I finally did. As to this book I started it then put it down and I tried again about one month later and finished it. Come on James stick to Alex Criss and the Women's murder club not this for you. I think your fans will be disappointed as I was. Big disappointment sorry.

Dull read

Slow to start. Struggled to finish. Picked up at the end. Left unanswered questions about the overall plot.
