Title Rogue Princess

Author B.R. Myers

Description from Amazon

Princess Delia knows her duty: She must choose a prince to marry in order to secure an alliance and save her failing planet. Yet she secretly dreams of true love, and feels there must be a better way. Determined to chart her own course, she steals a spaceship to avoid the marriage, only to discover a handsome stowaway.

All Aidan wanted was to “borrow” a few palace trinkets to help him get off the planet. Okay, so maybe escaping on a royal ship wasn’t the smartest plan, but he never expected to be kidnapped by a runaway princess!

Sparks fly as this headstrong princess and clever thief battle wits, but everything changes when they inadvertently uncover a rebel conspiracy that could destroy their planet forever.

Release Date January 21, 2020

Initial Thoughts

The tag line for this book was what made me really want to read it – gender-swapped Cinderella retelling – sign me up! My stop on the tour is later this month but I wanted to get my review out now in case anyone was on the fence about pre-ordering this gem!

Some Things I Liked

  • So much more than Cinderella. The crux of the story was a Cinderella retelling but there were so many easter eggs for other classic tales sprinkled throughout the book. To name a few, Aladdin, Rapunzel, and even a little bit of Mulan.
  • PUNS. I love puns and the absolute greatest one of all was SHEW. I loved it so much.
  • Shania was also a gem. She was the perfect blend of sassy and supportive sister to Delia and I would love to read a spin-off story about her adventures.

Something I Wasn’t Crazy About

  • Ok, this is totally a me thing – but, I don’t love sci-fi. I feel like I’m always trying to use logic to dismantle the plot (if that makes sense). Basically, I can suspend my disbelief so much more easily with fantasy or fiction based on magic, but, when it comes to sci-fi, I constantly find myself asking, if they have this, why can’t they do that? So, it’s difficult for me to really love a sci-fi book. However, Rogue Princess had so many other stellar elements, I did really like this one.

Series Value

This chapter of Delia’s story feels complete, but I would like to revisit this world in the form of spin-offs. There were a ton of fun characters whose stories are still relatively untold and I’d enjoy reading about them.

Final Thoughts

Delia was a fantastic warrior-princess whose story captured the best parts of Disney classics as well as turning the tables and proving that she doesn’t need anyone to save her. I loved that she was a strong female main character and she learned that love isn’t a weakness, but rather should be her strength. The witty banter was perfect and I was very (a little surprisingly), satisfied with the ending.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Recommendations for Further Reading

  • Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge – if you liked the fairytale retelling aspect of this book, definitely check out Rosamund Hodge’s books.  They are all super unique spins on the classics.
  • Princess in the Opal Mask by Jenny Lundquist – if you liked the Cinderella elements here, give this duology a try.
  • Bloodleaf by Crystal Smith – if you liked the Aladdin-vibes that can be seen in Rogue Princess, try Bloodleaf.
