The Princess Will Save you
A few weeks ago, my husband and I introduced our kids to The Princess Bride for movie night, and they loved it! I'm excited to pick up this gender-swapped retelling, in which the princess rescues the stable boy. At sixteen, Amarande wants to be a warrior, not a pawn in her kingdom's politics. After refusing an arranged marriage, a neighboring kingdom kidnaps her true love to trap her into a wedding. Of course Amarande won't let this go down without a fight, but she needs bravery and skill to save her love and the entire kingdom. While you wait for the next book in the series, pick up Henning's Little Mermaid retelling, The Sea Witch.
The Princess Will Save You is a YA fantasy adventure inspired by The Princess Bride, in which a princess must rescue her stable boy true love, from the acclaimed author of Sea Witch, Sarah Henning.
When a princess’s commoner true love is kidnapped to coerce her into a political marriage, she doesn’t give in—she goes to rescue him.
When her warrior father, King Sendoa, mysteriously dies, Princess Amarande of Ardenia is given what would hardly be considered a choice: Marry a stranger at sixteen or lose control of her family’s crown.
But Amarande was raised to be a warrior—not a sacrifice.
In an attempt to force her choice, a neighboring kingdom kidnaps her true love, stable boy Luca. With her kingdom on the brink of civil war and no one to trust, she’ll need all her skill to save him, her future, and her kingdom.
