I am so happy that I decided to pick up this audio book from the library.  They are very humorous and the story is good.  We get to see more characters in this one, for instance Snow White and Rapunzel are a much bigger part of the story, as well as Briar Rose.

In this story Liam begins to have a lot of self-doubt about his heroic past after discovering that his father had orchestrated the fight that saved Briar Rose when he was 3 years old.  He was by far the most interesting character in this book. We see him learn to live with himself and that just because his heroics when he was 3 was set up, it doesn’t mean he can’t be a hero now.  He also treats his friends differently as he struggles with this fact.

Liam and Gustav are still my favorite characters. Although Liam wasn’t as heartwarming in this one as he was in the first while he was dealing with his issues. Gustav is just hilarious. I absolutely love him.

Briar Rose was obnoxious. But you were always wondering throughout the book whether she would come around or not.  She always acted in a way to help herself.

The bad guys are pretty bad in this book. The Warlard of Dar, Rundark, is a pretty scary dude.   And of course Rauber is still in it also.

The love triangle between Ella and Frederick and Liam is getting annoying. I hate love triangles. But this one seemed to focus on what love is really all about. So I guess I can live with the love triangle right now if it shows that a relationship is built on trust and compromise; that you can’t be too similar or too different – you need to compliment each other.  I hope everything works itself out in the final book.

I’m looking forward to what happens to our League of Princes!
