Liked it

If you have read and enjoyed "Nobody's Princess" and its sequel "Nobody's Prize", you won't be disappointed with "Sphinx's Princess". The story itself it enjoyable enough, the writing style exactly the same in the aforementioned books and holds enough entertainment to keep the reader interested. It's not a book that requires deep thinking yet it's not what I would call a "fluff" book, as there is emotional connection you feel with the characters. Once again, if you are familiar with Ms. Freisner's other works, you are in for much of the same. Which leads me to my only true 'complaint': a lot of the plot bears a little too much resemblance to "Nobody's Princess". Even a few characters seem to resurface, with new names of course. However, it was still a entertaining enough read. Bottom line: It's a good read if your looking for something 'light' but will still hold your interest. I look forward to reading its sequel :)

the whole Sphinx's Princess series is amazing! I think it's Esther Freisner's best series. I love Nefertiti's character and the adventure this book is filled with. i recommend it!

love this book cant wait for the next book.

Pretty interesting. I wish the book had a better ending though. I mean it did make sense and it was good but she really didn't resolve most of the conflicts. There might be a sequel though so it's all good.
