A love against all odds . . .

A battle against ancient forces . . .

He was once a king, turned into a bear as punishment for his cruel and selfish deeds.

She was a once a princess, now living in the form of a hound.

Wary companions, they are sent--in human form--back to a time when magic went terribly astray. Together they must right the wrongs caused by this devastating power--if only they can find a way to trust each other. But even as their attraction grows, an old evil resurfaces, and they risk losing each other and destroying magic forever.

Review quote

"The relationships between animal and human, and the magic in being both, are exquisitely delineated, and the love story between the two strong protagonists is all the more powerful for being intensely restrained....absorbing."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

In an age of kings and princesses, Harrison weaves a fantasy tale of magic that links humans and animals in a surprising and unique way. King Richon and Princess Chala continue the adventure begun in THE PRINCESS AND THE HOUND. Though I did not read the first book, I had no problems understanding and enjoying THE PRINCESS AND THE BEAR. Richon and Chala are given a chance to pit themselves against the cat man and destroy his unmagic to save their way of life and their entire world. But will they be able to hold back the evil the cat man is spreading? Grab a copy of THE PRINCESS AND THE BEAR and lose yourself in a world of animal magic sure to thrill you with every turn of the more
