Rogue Princess Review

*I received an ARC from Fierce Reads in exchange for an honest review*

This is one of those weird situations where I’m not 100% sure how I feel about it this book. I’m wavering somewhere in a 3-4 star range, so I’m going to say this is maybe 3.5 stars for me.

There were a lot of aspects of this book I loved, which made it hard to put down! I tore threw this book! If a sci-fi genderbent retelling of Cinderella doesn’t sound epic enough, how about a feisty, tough princess, pirates, witty banter, a humorous male love interest, and a plot twist I didn’t see coming?! Still amazing?! Oh yes.

Unfortunately, one of the plot twists, although brilliant, also weirded me out enough to drop my rating. I don’t want to give any spoilers, but it kind of took some of my love for the story away. I was left with some more questions.

I also had some occasional problems with the writing style—it got better as I read, but it felt awkward in parts to me. I think this is mainly because some scenes, especially at the end, were a little rushed.

Perhaps another reason I can’t give this a full 5 stars is because it is, naturally and unfortunately, competing in my heart with The Lunar Chronicles. And as far as sci-fi fairytale retellings with witty banter go, TLC is still king (or queen 😉) in my heart.

All in all, I enjoyed this book. It was an entertaining ride!

Rogue Princess releases on 1/21/20! ☺️ If you love sci-fi, romance, pirates, retellings, and humorous dialogue, I recommend you check this one out!
