Princess Wisdom, known as Dizzy, longs for a life of adventure far beyond the staid old kingdom of Montagne.

Tips, a soldier, longs to keep his true life secret from his family.

Fortitude, an orphaned maid, longs only for Tips.

These three passionate souls might just attain their dreams while preserving Montagne from certain destruction; if only they can tolerate each other long enough to come up with a plan. Tough to save the world when you can´t even be in the same room together.

Magic, cunning and one very special cat join forces in this hilarious, extraordinary tale by the author ofDairy Queen and Princess Ben. An incredibly creative tale told with diaries, memoirs, encyclopedia entries, letters, biographies, even a stage play, all woven together into a grand adventure.
I’m not sure what to expect when I bought this book. The cover looks nice... and the synopsis do sound interesting. It’s kinda frustrating that I didn’t enjoy this book as I thought I would.

Wisdom's Kiss by Catherine Gilbert Murdock was one of the confusing book I’ve read. It was written in a few point of views – Tips, Trudy, Dizzy and a few others. I usually did not mind reading any book with alternating point of views, but in Wisdom’s Kiss, it was written in several styles – letters, encyclopedia and in screenplay form to name a few. The constant change in point of views and styles was too confusing that it  forced me to put down the book for quite a few times. It was sad because the storyline wasn’t so bad.


  1. Sorry to hear the book doesn't live up to its cover and synopsis.

    1. I think this book can be a good book if it is not for the writing style.
