The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy
The League of Princes #2
Pub: Apr 2013
4.5 of 5 stars
The princes from various fairy tales team up (with a bit of help from their princesses) to find a magical treasure and defeat an evil warlord.
Mere words cannot defeat a true hero. Unless they happen to be the words to some sort of Instant Death spell. Magic is scary.
This series is so much FUN!
Rarely does a sequel live up to the fun, excitement, and hilarity of the first book in a series. This book takes the characters we all loved in the first story and threw them together again, AND added more unique characters to join in the adventure. Though the cast of characters is quite large, the author does a fabulous job of giving them each their own personality, their own likes and dislikes, their own shortcomings and subtleties.
Overall: The plot? Fantastic. The humor? Laugh-out-loud. The princes? Simply charming 🙂
