The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle
The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle
By Christopher Healy
Walden Pond Press, 2013. Fiction. 479 pgs
After a year’s hiatus, the League of Princes reunite to reclaim their hero status as they set out to rescue Prince Liam; he’s been kidnapped by Briar Rose, who plans to force him to marry her. But things don’t go as planned (it’s the League of Princes we are talking about--what else do you expect?), and they end up having to battle enemies on all fronts. Trolls are back, as well as the Bandit King, and a new nemesis is stalking them as well. Secrets are revealed, jealousies arise, and humor abounds in this entertaining sequel to A Hero’s Guide to Saving Your Kingdom. Once again Bronson Pinchot amazes me with his talent as he comes up with so many distinctive voices for the multitude of characters the book contains. Available on Overdrive.
