‘Rescuing The Prince’ is a hidden gem! A fairy tale in the modern world where princesses don’t need to be rescued.
Back in California, Leah’s boyfriend is kidnapped…by a dragon! When Leah tries to find Gerry, little does she know that she’ll be traveling to another realm to save him.
What I love about the plot is that, even though you might have your suspicions about how the whole thing will end, you still have no idea how Leah will get there! It’s quite exciting to accompany Leah in her adventures in this magical world, as she learns magic and meets new companions.
There’s only one thing I could complain about: how some of the parallel stories weren’t fully explored. There’s so much more I wanted to know! I feel as if some of those characters deserve their own book.
Thank you for having created such a strong-willed heroine and having developed her character and growth through the story. We need more leads like this, especially in YA literature. Girls who don’t need to be saved but who are still flawed: not invincible or perfect, simply real and determined.
That being said, while I loved Leah as a character, I felt the romance part fell a bit flat for me. I wish there was more information about her past with Gerry, so we could feel strongly about him as well – either positively or negatively. We had a few hints, but I wanted to know more.
The rest of the characters were surprisingly likable, and as I said before, I’m only sad we couldn’t know more about their stories: Reldion’s mysterious romance with who-shall-not-be-named, the full story about the white people, Gerry’s past with his ex-lover (again, to not spoil), Ben and Callie, etc.
The narrative was told from Leah’s point of view. First-person was a great choice, as we could really understand what was in Leah’s head as she interacted with new characters and found new things.
I also enjoyed the references to the modern world and Leah’s occasional witty remarks.
Overall, ‘Rescuing The Prince’ is the next fantasy tale you need to read! 4 Stars.
The story had Leah impersonating the princess, learning magic, as well as rescuing her boyfriend. In the midst, Leah did find her heart twanging for one of the guards Tolliver.
Meghann has done a good job in writing Leah's adventure, who was initially quiet, unassuming, till she came into her true nature and became quite strong and bold. I liked how she could do her magic, and I wanted more of it.
The concept was great but the delivery stumbled. There were a few interesting subplots which I wanted more of. I didn't like the way Leah's thoughts were written in brackets. The story needed a wee bit of excitement and more magic.
Overall it was a good read with fun and twists and a tiny cliffhanger which made way for the next book.
What I liked:
Leah is very different than most other female main characters that I have read. What I mean by that is that she is shy and has anxiety problems about meeting people and being in a big group setting. That is pretty neat to see in a female MC since we don’t usually see that.
Another thing that I liked about the book is that it’s set in I guess an alternate world which is pretty cool. That right there took time, of course, to get the information about the new world for Leah to understand it.
I liked how even though she looked like the lost princess she was able to make everyone thinks that she is.
It has a lot of plot twists in it that I wouldn’t have thought of for the book.
What I didn’t like:
I didn’t like how the information was massive overload for this book.
We have the magic system for the book that doesn’t even feel like a system. Then again, we haven’t really gotten a good look at it.
I feel like it’s a good thing the book is written in Leah’s point of view but then I also don’t like it since we only see things through her eyes which can be a bit weird.
What I am curious about:
I am curious if Leah is actually from that world after all? Or did she just somehow started showing magic after the dragon showed up?
Rescuing the Prince by Meghann McVey was a hard book to get into but a good read. I am giving it three stars because it did take me a while to read it and it was hard to get into. I have a hard time with books like that and this one was no different. It did leave off with a cliffhanger, so no real happy ever after. However, I will think about reading the next book when it comes out.
Anyways until the next time enjoy this review brought to you by
