The Mystic Princesses and the Magic Show by PJ LaRue revolves around the Mystic Princesses who visit Catie's home in New Orleans. Catie's dad introduces them to the Goddess of War, Athena, who is also the sister of Ares, the God of War. Athena is there that summer to teach these girls strategy and self defense. They have to find Harmonie who had flown away after being changed into a dove. Finally when they find her, Catie changes her back into human form. The Children of Ares want to capture Harmonie so that they can fight and cause wars. The Children of Ares, in the meantime, are training at the Warrior Training Camp on the ways to capture Harmonie. The girls know their enemies and, when they are not training, they tell readers a whole lot of new things about New Orleans; its culture, history, and food, about Mardi Gras, and then readers are also taken to Alaska.

The story is excellent and the very fact that it portrays these girls as powerful characters whose powers include the elements of water, fire, earth, and air is exciting to read. There are a lot of things woven into the plot that give the story many layers to it. The illustrations are bright and colorful and breathe life into the characters, scenes, and plot. The story will encourage readers to use their thinking skills, and it educates them on many new things which are useful and informative. An entertaining read.
