#BookReview in GIFS: The Princess Will Save You (The Princess Will Save You #1) by Sarah Henning @shhenning @TorTeen

Synopsis:  A PRINCESS

When her father dies, Princess Amarande is given an ultimatum: Marry the leader of one of the four neighboring kingdoms, or lose her crown—and possibly her life. And to force her hand, her beloved, the stable boy Luca, is kidnapped.

But Amarande was raised to be a warrior, not a sacrifice.

And nothing will stop her from saving her true love and rescuing her kingdom.

The acclaimed author of Sea Witch turns the classic damsel-in-distress tale on its head with this story of adventure, identity, and love.


Rating: ★★★★★
My Review: If you grew up being a fan of the book or movie The Princess Bride then this one is going to make you fall in love all over again!! With subtle things from the Princess Bride this story turns it on its head as its time for the Princess to get a sword and save those she loves.  No damsel in destress this time around!!  I really loved how the author started this one out with a bang!  It was totally shocking every chapter and as I got towards the end I realize this wasn't a stand alone but a two book series.  Talk about dying!!   

The characters in this one were fabulous!! Ama was a very strong female figure and I love her so much!! She knows that she doesn't need a man to rule her kingdom and she is determined on making that come to pass.  This reminded me of The Princess Diaries which just made me love her more.  Her true love in this Luca was adorable!! My oldest would call him a cinnamon roll and I would totally have to agree with her.  I can not wait to see him come into his own in book two!  

This story was just so good!! There are so many twists and turns that happen that I can't talk about!!  OMG I can't talk about them!!  One part you find out about someone and its just done so subtle and it worked so well!! Ugh this book was just so good!! Don't miss it! 


"An action-packed adventure with a fierce heroine that is sure to enthrall! Sarah Henning has created a fantasy narrative that weaves together love and betrayal, pirates and swordplay. Full of plot twists and high stakes, this novel is sure to please anyone who grew up loving tales of princesses."--Emily Lloyd-Jones, author of The Bone Houses
