5.0 von 5 Sternen The Entire Series Is Phenomenally Brilliant, 19. Juni 1999
Von Ein Kunde
What? Only five stars?!? I need more to do this series justice! Patricia C. Wrede writes marvelous fantasy. It's like "Mixed-Up Fairy Tales" or something, but funnier, more engaging, and ripe for repeat reading (I just graduated from high school, and I just finished reading the entire series for the third time in a matter of days). These are timeless tales. Even her NAMES are inventive. Cimorene, Mendanbar, Kazul, Morwen, Telemain, Daystar, Shiara...and let us not forget Zemenar and Antorell. The chapter headings induce chuckles immediately, simply by their existence. She writes in a style that incorporates intelligent fantasy with enjoyable humor. The characters are some you would like to know personally. And nowhere else have I seen as unique a discussion of magic in its many forms as in these four books. I did notice a trend of centralization. Dealing was Cimorene's book. Searching was Mendanbar's. Calling was Morwen's. Talking was Daystar's. I wish the series was not concluded, because I'd love to see Telemain's book. And perhaps Kazul's book could be somewhat of a prequel. Oh, and what about a book from Antorell's perspective? That would make for an incredibly funny story. The Enchanted Forest and its surrounding is a world I want to know about. Not many authors can create an entire world that entices the reader so greatly. But Mrs. Wrede has. Unlike the Douglas Adams' Hitchiker's Guide series, which got progressively worse, each book in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles compares to the original, as fresh and brilliant as ever. Needless to say, this series is one of the best ever. I have not really sampled a lot of the adult fantasy by Piers Anthony and Anne McCaffrey and such, but I doubt they can compare with the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. This is not mindboggling fantasy like the Lord of the Rings trilogy: this is fun. Oh, and remember: <points finger>..."Argelfraster."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dragons, witches, magicians, wizards, magic carpets..., 30. Juni 2000
This is the second book in the Enchanted Forest quartet, and I recently finished reading it for the fourth time. The whole series is brilliant! King Mendanbar's casual stroll through his kingdom, the Enchanted Forest, leads to one thing after another when he discovers somthing seriously amiss. In trying to answer his questions, he meets the extremely practical witch Morwen, who sends him to visit King Kazul of the dragons. He instead encounters the King's resident princess, Cimorene, and reluctantly sets out with her to search for a missing friend. On their way, they meet the magician Telemain (whose sentences generally contain at least three 20-letter words), a giantess, Rumplstilskin's grandson, and many more unforgettable characters. Less fortunate meetings include several wizards, whose intentions are less than good. Add a leaky magic sword, a defective flying carpet, and eight buckets of soapy water with lemon juice. This is truly one of my all-time favorite books!

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book was better even than it's prequel., 14. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I am a lover of dragons, so of course this series caught my eye. After reading the first book, I decided to venture on and discovered the second book. I couldn't put it down after the first chapter. The characters were well thought out, the plot was excellent, and more than anything it made you feel as if you were right there with Mendanbar and Cimorene. That's another part I enjoyed: the romance was just enough to make it interesting, but not too much so that it clouded over the story. Also, Cimorene's dislike of Mendanbar in the beginning is very typical for this unlikely princess. Mendanbar, too, first thinks of Cimorene as one of the empty-headed princesses that he so loaths. I highly recommend this book to people even who are older than young adult. It will tickle your fancy for fantasy, and satisfy your reading itch.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant- like the others, 24. November 1999
I am a picky reader, especially when it comes to the standard fantasy cliches, like, romance, Dragons, and enchanted forests. This book is easily taken for granted-- a standard quest, with all the usual quest-hampering pitfalls. So how does Patricia Wrede turn it on its head and make this (and the other Enchanted Forest novels) some of the most well-written and engaging novels I've ever read? They appeal to everyone I've ever known who has read them, from my little sister to my much-older cousin. They even appeal to me, reading for the fifth or sixth time many years after I first picked them up. Particularly this one, which may be my favorite of the lot. Anyone who is interested in fairy tales, fantasy- and for that matter, anyone interested in reality- will have their socks knocked off their feet.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Immerses you in the action right from the start, 7. Juli 1999

I absolutely LOVE this series! I own all the books and have read them all about 6 or 7 times and this one is my favorite. I love the subtle romance included in it and Patricia C. Wrede makes everything wonderful in the stories. The titles of the stories are wonderfuly hilarious such as: "Chapter 4: In which Kazul has a dinner party and Cimorene makes dessert." (Dealing With Dragons) The romance and love in this book is soo perfect and I can't stop reading it! The only book series I read more is Star Wars, and I think Princess Leia is like Cimorene. I think that all 4 of these books should be made into movies, and, hey, if anyone decides to make them into movies, contact me: I would absolutely love to be Cimorene!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen An ingenious book to an ingenious series, 9. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The enchanted forest chronicles got me hooked on fantasy, but I have never been able to find any work that compares even closely to Ms. Wrede's. Searching is my favorite book in this series. I especially like how she uses familiar stories and tales to tie into her stories, only she twists them around a little to make it funny (a magic carpet with bright pink teddy bears, Rumplestiltskin's grandson with a problem of getting too many children, a wicked uncle who has to do something wicked or else, and so on). I would love to meet the characters personally, and I have read the whole series about four times. On a scale of 1 to 10 this is an absolute 11!

5.0 von 5 Sternen More excellent fantasy from Patricia C. Wrede, 1. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Searching For Dragons is my favorite in the awesome Enchanted Forest Chronicles. Similar to the first one in tone, Cimorene's further adventures offer new surprises and puns. Mendenbar is a refreshingly practical king (not a prince or a virtuous wood-cutter) and the dialogue between he and Cimorene is often humorous.
Unlike Tamora Pierce's books, the Enchanted Forest Chronicles are good throughout and are done (in my opinion) with a great deal more of creativity and humor. Try them! You won't be disappointed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Searching For Dragons is a great book!!!!!, 26. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Patricia C. Wrede is a fabulous author. She used so much fantasy to make this great book. She uses magic,a gargoyle and many other fantasy creatures. Searching For Dragons is about a king of The Enchanted Forest who thinks he can handle everything himself, but finds out in his adventures with a not-so princess-like Princess; that he needs a partner in life, a wife. It1s part love and part fantasy. This is a major 10!!!!!!

5.0 von 5 Sternen I DID NOT PUT THIS DOWN, 25. November 1999
This book, along with the other three in the series, captured my full attention and did not let it go until I had read the entire 600+ pages in the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. I got it on a Friday and kept reading until my eyes would not stay open, I woke up Early Saturday and, well, read the entire thing. It is one of the absolute best books I have ever read with an original plot. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
