I have not read the first two books before this but it does not in any way hamper my enjoyment of the book. Petunia is an interesting character that I immediately fall in love with. Maybe it's because she shoved a gun up a bandit's nose right in the first few pages which just shows how feisty she is.
And her sisters; the supposedly twelve dancing princesses are a real delight. Not to mention the many heroes in the book. Oliver the down and out of luck noble son who had to resort to robbery to feed his people immediately grew an attraction to Petunia and it is interesting to see their blossoming romance despite the fact that both parties tried to hide it. And the whole mystery regarding the Kingdom Under the Stone intrigued me till the end.
I'm glad I had the chance to read this series and hope there'll be more stories about the princesses. Feisty, witty and strong heroines are indeed my thing. And the princesses certainly did not disappoint.
Verdict: 4 stars.
