To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Loved this new instalment of this series!! Love that it contained characters we have met in previous books so if u haven’t read any of the previous books I would recommend that you do before reading this one!! Fab story line and I can’t wait for the next one!!
Another wonderful fairy tale from KM Shea. I love these books - the characters are interesting, the world is well built and the story is engaging. There is also just a touch of humour that make these books so enjoyable. It was also great to see characters from the previous books again so well-worth a read if you're a fan of the series.
Looooved it. Both the protagonist and her prince are fantastic. Ariane doesn't take crap from anyone, and Lucien basically sits back appreciately and lets her be her kick-ass self, all the while being absolutely hysterical. Furthermore, she doesn't jump at the chance to be a princess, but thinks things through and makes sure he's serious and she's satisfied with how her life is going to go. The dynamic between the snarky but clever Lucien and straight-forward, practical Ariane is super engaging. Another win for K. M. Shea!
I love the way that K.M. Shea takes a fairytale and makes it her own! In this case, Prince Lucien is turned into a frog after a failed assassination attempt. As a frog, he can be enchanted to be pretty indestructible. A maid, Arianne saved him, and is now watching over him as a frog. I loved this relationship! Lucien is a bit of a toad at first, and prince or not, Arianne is not afraid to tell him so. I also loved the way that Lucien’s sister-in-law, Elle, gave Arianne permission to throw frog Lucien or do whatever she wants if he is rude. He is indestructible after all.
While each of the books in the series can be read independently, this is the first time where I have felt like reading the rest of the series would be important. The countries have all gathered for a summit to discuss the magical attacks and what they can do to unite. There are many characters who overlap from previous books. We also get some new information about the big picture of who is behind these attacks.
I cannot wait for the next book!
If you like clever fairytales, I highly recommend this series.
