Featured Review: Glass Princess (M Lynn)

About This Book:

 

A shattered princess is a vengeful princess. On the shores of Madra, rebellion has won. Her family dead or missing, Helena seeks help from the kingdom across the sea. Bela. She knows it from stories of magic and war but now finds herself at the mercy of the intimidating Basile queen. Etta is everything Helena wishes she could have been for her family and everything she hopes to be still. Convincing the foreign warrior queen to let her stay is easy. Convincing her to train a princess she barely knows is something else entirely. When shocking news comes out of Gaule, Helena realizes the fight for Madra hasn’t ended. It has only just begun. Dell Tenyson left everything behind. When the crown fell, he found himself on the unlikely side of those trying to save it. And they’d failed. Now, he follows Helena across the sea to help her regain what she lost. Not the crown. Her family. But when all she wants is vengeance, will he be enough to remind her she still has a reason to live for something more? Glass Princess is book two in a duology that is part of the Fantasy and Fairytales series.

M. Lynn has a way of grabbing ahold of your heart and giving it a squeeze with the words in her stories. She also takes the classic tales and princesses I grew up with and turns them into young women with a purpose.

GLASS PRINCESS gives us the ending to Helena and Dell's story, which is inspired by Cinderella. When Cole takes over the throne, Helena finds herself in Bela with a character we're all familiar with: Etta. Here, she struggles with grasping the tragedy that happened back home. She must decide if she wants to reclaim the thrown and how she should go about it. But no matter what she chooses, Dell will remain at her side.

This series has so much raw emotion that you become invested in the characters and want what's best for them. It's a page turner that you won't want to put down. I absolutely love Dell, even though Edmund is still my favorite. I love how this duology connects to the Rapunzel retelling.


I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves the rise and fall of kingdoms, the makings of a badass princess fighting to reclaim her role as queen, and the magical properties of the characters and the story itself.
