Deception’s Princess (Princesses of Myth)

We rated this book:


Maeve was different. She wasn’t like any of her five older sisters or the female fosterlings in the fortress she calls her home. She was a fighter. This made her her father’s favorite, as he had no son to rule after him. As she grows up, it becomes clear that something must be done to secure an heir or her father, the High King. When securing a marriage to the princess is the way for royal hopefuls to gain the throne, Maeve gets way too much unwelcome attention. She wants a chance to prove herself.

Not only does the cover picture bring up images of Merida from Disney’s Brave, but much of the storyline is the same, too. This makes it a little predictable, but if you enjoyed watching Brave, you might enjoy reading this longer, more fleshed-out story of a strong young woman. It was a great book. I was slightly disappointed with how it ended, but it is still great nonetheless. The bard character was kind of funny, and a good friend to Maeve, too.
