Rogue Princess by B.R. Myers is a SciFi Fantasy of a princess and a thief on the run!
“A princess fleeing an arranged marriage teams up with a snarky commoner to foil a rebel plot in B. R. Myers’ Rogue Princess, a gender-swapped sci-fi YA retelling of Cinderella.
Princess Delia knows her duty: She must choose a prince to marry in order to secure an alliance and save her failing planet. Yet she secretly dreams of true love, and feels there must be a better way. Determined to chart her own course, she steals a spaceship to avoid the marriage, only to discover a handsome stowaway.
All Aidan wanted was to “borrow” a few palace trinkets to help him get off the planet. Okay, so maybe escaping on a royal ship wasn’t the smartest plan, but he never expected to be kidnapped by a runaway princess!
Sparks fly as this headstrong princess and clever thief battle wits, but everything changes when they inadvertently uncover a rebel conspiracy that could destroy their planet forever.”
This book took me by complete surprise! And in a good way!!
If you’re a fan of the Lunar Chronicles with the scifi fantasy world full of runaway princesses, androids, and a thief, you will instantly dive into this story. All the vibes were here with a unique twist.
The writing drew me in to this fun adventure with secrets and inter-planet conspiracies. There are so many elements that nicely fit this into a sci-fi fantasy story perfect for YA readers.
I gave this a solid 4 out of 5 stars and highly recommend to readers of this genre!
