Book Review: A Tale of Two Castles

Since the introduction of Ella Enchanted, Gail Carson Levine has published more fairy tale stories and adventures in the realm of Neverland. Her new book, A Tale of Two Castles takes a new perspective on the detective story and the fairy tale. Elodie is a young girl who must start an apprenticeship. She plans to be a mansioner (the role of a performer or actor) but things take an unexpected turn. She becomes a dragon's assistant and find the person threatening the Duke, who happens to be an ogre. But all is not as it seems. Elodie must decide who she can trust and where she belongs. By using her mansioning skills, and being aware of her surroundings, she might have the ability to save the duke and gain a dragon's trust. But who is the culprit? The only way to find out is to read her story. This story is worthy of four out of five apples (or is it Pyramus?)
