A Posse of Princesses, by Sherwood Smith (Norilana Books, 2008)

Rhis, a romantic, rebellious princess of a small but prosperous kingdom, finds both friends and rivals when she’s sent to spend time in a nearby kingdom for a coming of age party, along with numerous other princes and princesses. After one of their number is kidnapped, she leads a small band of her new friends in a daring quest in which they explore self-reliance, independence, and the bonds of friendship. With multiple heroines to root for, and a skillful blend of magic, excitement, romance and courtly intrigue, this is a lovely, highly pleasing story, and I hope we’ll see more set in this world.
