Book Blurb

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.

Review

I am not really tshe go-to person to for sci-fi recommendations, as this is something that I am not normally into reading. But, I was interested in reading Rogue Princess because I was excited about a Cinderella rating that is set in space.

Rogue Princess follows the journey of Princess Delia, who has to choose a husband to better her country in a dilemma a la The Selection, and Aidan, who is a poor boy in the palace that does chores and steals trinkets for extra money. This book tells their love story.

This book is a little slow on the build up, but if it is not a concern to you, the plot twist will be worth it in the end. The romance in this story is also sweet and heartwarming, so it is perfect for all the hopeless romantics like me.

Overall, the Rogue Princess is an enjoyable read for all lovers of SciFi and Cinderella retellings.
