Mette Ivie Harrison has a PhD in Germanic literature and is the author of The Princess and the Hound; Mira, Mirror; and The Monster in Me.
Of The Princess and the Bear, she says, "I never thought there would be a sequel to the princess and the hound, but when I read through the galleys, I realized that there was another book waiting in the story of the bear and the hound. In some ways, you might think of it more as a parallel novel than as a sequel, because it stands on its own as a new story. But who knows? Maybe I'll look at these galleys and find another story demanding to be told."
She lives with her family in Utah.From Booklist:
When duty steers Prince George into betrothal to an enemy king's daughter, he is surprised to find he admires the prickly, forthright princess, despite her apparent indifference to any but her beloved pet hound. As George attempts to win Beatrice's heart along with her hand, evidence of treachery back home leads him to startling truths about animal magic—the stigmatized gift of animal speech, which he secretly possesses—as well as information about his betrothed. The logic of Harrison's complicated plot isn't always clear, especially not the connections between an ancient legend and the characters' current dilemmas. Some readers may also question George's continuing devotion to Beatrice, given her frequent, chilly rebuffs. More compelling is George's poignant emotional growth, as his heart, once set afire, helps him to reconnect with his own true self and to embrace his ascent to the throne. The tale's perspective from that of a marriageable prince, not the more usual damsel's view, makes this stand out from other novels set in a folklore-influenced framework. Mattson, Jennifer
