The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw


By Christopher Healy
Walden Pond Press, 2014. Fiction. 516 p.

In the concluding installment of the Hero’s Guide trilogy, Prince Liam, Prince Frederic, Prince Duncan, and Prince Gustav (the Princes Charming of fairy tale fame who have formed the League of Princes) have been accused of murder and they need to clear their names. While doing so, they uncover a plot headed by a familiar enemy to overtake the surrounding kingdoms. Of course the princes can’t do it all on their own as they battle pirates, bounty hunters, giants etc. Cinderella, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Princess Lila are right there with them.

Love this fractured fairy tale trilogy. It has something for everyone of all ages with humor, romance, adventure, mystery, and fantasy. I highly recommend listening to Bronson Pinchot's superb narration on the next family road trip.
