Description

The League of Princes returns in the hilariously epic conclusion to Christopher Healy's hit series, which Kirkus Reviews called part screwball comedy, part sly wit, and all fun in a starred review!

Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You think you know those guys pretty well by now, don't you? Well, think again. Posters plastered across the thirteen kingdoms are saying that Briar Rose has been murdered--and the four Princes Charming are the prime suspects. Now they're on the run in a desperate attempt to clear their names. Along the way, however, they discover that Briar's murder is just one part of a nefarious plot to take control of all thirteen kingdoms--a plot that will lead to the doorstep of an eerily familiar fortress for a final showdown with an eerily familiar enemy.

Bronson Pinchot, an Audie Award-winning narrator and Audible's Narrator of the Year for 2010, received his education at Yale University, which filled out what he had already received at his mother's knee in the all-important areas of Shakespeare, Greek art and architecture, and the Italian Renaissance. He restores Greek Revival buildings and appears in television, film, and on stage whenever the pilasters and entablatures overwhelm him.

Reviews

In a wacky sequence of mistakes and flukes, two sets of rescuers-Duncan and Snow, and Ella and Liam-fall in and out of the bounty hunters' clutches until the princesses are trapped beyond rescue, and the brave princes run away...While initially portrayed as more competent than their princes, the princesses soon reveal themselves as just as hilariously dysfunctional. Throughout the heroes' and heroines' travels, the antiprince conspiracy is revealed in each kingdom...Side characters make comedic final appearances, and a surprise villain team-up provides closure to the trilogy. Part screwball comedy, part sly wit and all fun.

-- "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

The third installment in this series finds the League of Princes on the run...Surprises abound with the reappearance of past foes...There's really something for everyone here...Healy has a good understanding of middle-grade humor and his audience in general. With its gender-bending stereotypes and oodles of action, this addition will be welcomed by fans of the series.

-- "School Library Journal"

Narrator Bronson Pinchot expertly gives voice and personality to almost a dozen familiar characters from fairy tales...Pinchot opts to give some of the characters bizarre affectations, like California surfer accents. He's particularly good at making ogres sound like monsters and making the book an enjoyable romp...The book is silly and quirky but full of adventure and derring-do.
