The Princess Will Save You

A YA retelling twist up inspired by the Princess Bride is exactly what you need to be reading during these crazy pandemic days. Let yourself be whisked into the Kingdom of Sand and Sky. When King Sendoa mysteriously dies his daughter Princess Armarande of Ardenia (love that alliteration) is compelled by law to get married or lose the crown. She is only sixteen so this proves to be difficult to both accept as her father trained her to fight, not a figurehead.

The plot soon picks up speed and becomes exactly what fans of The Princess Bride enjoy: a journey to save her true love Luca filled with adventure and sword play!

This was a fun one for the YA reader in your world. It seems like the kind of book you either love or hate. I loved it. There isn’t much more to say after that.
