Meet How The Multiverse Got Its Revenge!
Rory Thorne must use the fairy blessings gifted to her to change the multiverse in the second book in this space opera duology.
After avoiding an arranged marriage, thwarting a coup, and inadvertently kick-starting a revolution, Rory Thorne is no longer a princess, but a space pirate.
Her new life is interrupted when Rory and her crew--former royal bodyguards, Thorsdottir and Zhang, and co-conspirator Jaed--encounter an abandoned ship registered under a false name, seemingly fallen victim to attack. As they investigate, they find evidence of vicious technology and arithmancy, alien and far beyond known capabilities.
The only answer to all the destruction is the mysterious, and unexpected, cargo: a rose plant. One that reveals themself to be sentient--and designed as a massive biological weapon. Rose seeks to escape their intended fate, and Rory and her friends must act fast when the attackers return with their superior weaponry.
As the situation gains the attention of an increasing number of alien races, Rory finds herself acting as negotiator and diplomat, in order to save Rose and her friends--and avert an unprecedented war.

YA Books Central Top 5 Fictional Wicked Women
- Medea. Grand-daughter of Helios, not quite a goddess, definitely a witch. She and her magic are the reason Jason and his Argonauts succeed in getting the Golden Fleece. But instead of happily ever after, Jason decides to marry another princess, banish Medea, and keep custody of their kids. She gets revenge by poisoning Jason's new fianceé, his new father-in-law, and then stabbing her own children. Then she escapes in a dragon-drawn chariot.
- Circe. The original one. Another witch. Lives alone on an island with a bunch of animals. Turns unwelcome male visitors into beasts. Also Medea's aunt. Also the reason Odysseus gets on with his journey and finally makes it home. Gives good advice about asking ghosts for information in the Underworld.
- Cersei. The other one. Not a witch. Murders baby wolves. And human babies. And adults. Just a lot of murdering. Stop it, Cersei.
- Lady Macbeth. Behind every good regicide is a woman who wants to be queen. Not a witch. Ambitious, manipulative, not afraid to get her hands dirty.
- Maleficent. (The original one, although the Angelina Jolie version's pretty great too.) Because she turns into a dragon, and she wears black, and her hat is just the best and and come on, I'll say it again, she turns into a dragon!
