I was super excited to get my hands on a copy of this book. Tagged as a “gender bent Princess Bride retelling”, the story sounded so up my alley. Also, despite my feelings about the ending of the first book, I really liked Sarah Henning’s Sea Witch duology.
Some Things I Liked
The feeling of narration. Like the Princess Bride movie, the story read like someone was narrating a story and I really enjoyed that aspect. Normally, I prefer first person narration but this felt right for the type of story.
The romance. It wasn’t messy or confusing and there were no love triangles. It was true love plain and simple.
The realism in the political plot as well as the betrayals. There are some heavy themes in this book and I thought they paired well with the idea of true love and rescues. Princess Amarande and Luca have both had hard lives in very different ways but I loved that their problems didn’t weigh them down. Furthermore, Amarande was ready to do whatever it took to get Luca back.
One Thing I Wasn’t Crazy About
I found the story insanely predictable. I had literally guessed who everyone was, their relationships, and the repercussions of those relationships less than 50 pages in. I wish I had been surprised a bit more.
I would definitely keep reading this series. I like the plot and the characters and I am eager to know more. I do not feel like this book merits re-reading come the release of subsequent sequels, however. The details were rich but not so much so that I can’t remember the plot well enough.
I enjoyed this book. I think it’s my favorite of Sarah Henning’s stories. It paid homage to a classic story and had a good storyline. I’d keep reading and am eager to see more of Sarah Henning’s ideas in the future.
Recommendations for Further Reading
Sea Witch by Sarah Henning – if you liked the writing style and are interested in another retelling with a twist by Sarah Henning, try this duology.
Roar by Cora Carmack – if you liked the idea of runaway princesses and royals who would do anything to save their loved ones, try this series.
Caraval by Stephanie Garber – if you liked the idea of true love as a powerful form of magic, try this series.
The Princess Will Save You was really enjoyable. It was just the book I needed for fun, summer, fantasy reading with a touch of nostalgia. I actually hadn't realized it was going to be A Princess Bride retelling until I started it. This was a very pleasant surprise as I loved that movie growing up. However the characters and plotline were different so I didn't feel like I was reading a story I already knew. Sarah Henning did a great job adding some twists, a bit of political royal intrigue, feminism and adventure. I also really liked that the romance wasn't overwhelming. While the romance between Princess Amarande and Luca was the main plotline, it was done in a way where it felt more like a side plotline. I had originally been worried this book would just be another same old lovey dovey princess fantasy that I've read a hundred times before, but it really wasn't at all. I highly recommend.

Another story I just couldn’t put down!
Amarande is a princess raised by her Warrior King Father alongside her best friend Luca, the castle’s stableboy. When Amarande’s Father dies in seemingly natural circumstances, Amarande is expected to wed a prince of a neighbouring kingdom to secure her rule. However she is in love with Luca and he with her, and when Luca is kidnapped she will stop at nothing to save him.
This book ended with a lot of questions! I hope/NEED a second book to continue the story!! This is the first book of @shhenning that I have read but upon finishing this book I have now ordered Sea Witch!
The cover is what pulled me in initially, I know you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover but it’s so pretty and the book lives up to the promise it gives!

What i got for the most part was, a run of the mill, average, but good romantic fantasy... However...
I wasn't quite expecting the excellent pacing. The well rounded likable (but still flawed) main characters. Villains who started out tame but became actually awful. There were twists and turns at the end of this book that keep me speed reading this book until I had finished it. I am 100% going to be continuing this series.
Amarande is both likeable, yet realistic in many aspects. She is a strong willed character who is impulsive but isn't perfect. Luca is adorable and such an amazing male in this book. He is not phased at all about potentially being saved by a woman. The side characters in particular Ula, are actually well developed for such a short book and there was some good quality banter between characters.
Now honestly it isn't a book that is likely to win any awards, however it was actually what a book should be. It was enjoyable, it kept my interest and now keeps me wanting more. There is scope in this story for the sequel to be damn good and I can't wait to carry on.
