Princess of Tyrone (Fairytale Galaxy #1)
Release Date: March 31st 2016
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Genres: Space Opera, Sci Fi/Fantasy
Summary from Goodreads:
Apolline is happy hunting magical creatures on her pirate infested outer-perimeter planet. She is a fantastic shot, and doesn’t flinch at the blood and guts of her kills. Never once did she consider she could be the missing Princess of Tyrone.
All her life, she has heard the story of the Princess, cursed to sleep for eternity, unless her betrothed, the Prince of Oran, gave her true love’s kiss. Although Apolline knows she is betrothed, she thinks her fairy guardians arranged it out of ignorance of human ways. The thought she could be a princess is inconceivable.
Then Allard appears. Handsome, charming—but he’s not hers to have. He’s betrothed, too. Her guardians warn her against her new found friendship, but she and Allard meet in secret anyway. Despite her rough exterior, he sees beyond her gun-slinging bravado, and their love blossoms.
But the deadline for the sleeping curse is approaching. If Apolline falls in love with the wrong person, she could end up sleeping forever.
A quirky, adventurous retelling of Sleeping Beauty, with a less than princess-ly princess!
This was not just exhilirating, but completely engrossing! I read this in much less time than I anticipated because I simply couldn’t put it down! I often adore fairy tale retellings, and The Princess of Tyrone was no exception. Adding the sci-fi angle really made this stand out, even though this has been done recently, Hamstead makes her own way through popular Grimm brothers’ tales, full of lies, secrets, betrayal, and of course forbidden romance. Who wouldn’t want a piece of this action? Though it remains firmly in the realm of YA, I didn’t find the story tedious or immature. In fact, it was witty and hilarious, and often pulse-stopping in it’s suspensefulness. Truly, there is something for fans of multiple genres to enjoy in this story of two kids trying to stay loyal to their families without sacrificing their true hearts. I highly recommend that you go on and grab yourself a copy!
