The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw

Hero'sThe Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw by Christopher Healy
The League of Princes #3

★ ★ ★ ★

Pub: April 2014

The League of Princes sets out to clear their names after being accused of killing Princess Briar Rose.

Opening lines:


King Wilberforce was in a foul mood, as he had been ever since Prince Frederic had stormed out of the palace months earlier. His son had never lashed out at him like that before. And to think it was simply because he had banished his son’s fiancee.

The League of Princes is hands-down one of my favorite MG series. The Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom and The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle were clever, witty, and — most of all — fun, and this final book of the series (sob!) lived up to the excitement of the earlier books.

What I liked: I love the characters and the crazy situations they get themselves into. I love the quirky turns of phrase and the silly slapstick humor. And there’s a character named Val Jeanval! Is there anything about this book I don’t love?

What I didn’t like: Um… Well, there certainly are a lot of characters, and it can get confusing at times keeping track of who’s where when. I didn’t mind too much, but I could see how it might frustrate some other readers.
