Forget-Me-Nots: Of Two Minds

Forget-Me-Nots is a feature on my blog for highlighting books I enjoyed in childhood and the teenage years that I don't see getting much attention nowadays.

Of Two Minds by Carol Matas & Perry Nodelman

Goodreads' description:

"The complex plot follows the adventures of Lenora, a headstrong princess with the power to make anything she imagines real, and Coren, the shy prince chosen by her parents to be her husband. Trapped in a strange land and stripped of their powers (Coren had been able to read the thoughts not only of humans, but also of animals and objects), the two must work together to overthrow the tyrannical Hevak, restore harmony to the country, and return home safely."

This is the first in a series that has to be one of the wackiest, most out-there fantasy series I've ever read. The events can be super complicated at times (especially in the later books), but if you don't try too hard to rationally follow everything that's going on, and just allow yourself to go with the flow, you'll likely end up rooting for the main characters Lenora and Coren, and enjoying the outlandish escapades. (Although, just a warning that the books just get weirder and weirder as the series progresses.)

Has anyone else read this book (or the sequels)? What did you make of it?
