The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle

The League of Princes, Book 2

HerosGuide2hccWritten by Christopher Healy, Illustrated by Todd Harris

After successfully defeating the evil witch and saving the 13 Kingdoms, Liam, Duncan, Frederick, and Gustav find that fame is fleeting and the League of Princes, better known as the Princes Charming or Prince Charmings (depending on who is saying it) are back in the shadows of their Princesses. But, when an evil object is discovered and could destroy the kingdoms again, they band together, somewhat, to save the day. Christopher Healy once again comes through with a wonderfully funny twist on these fairy tales that readers will surely enjoy. Each character, whether good or evil, is so perfectly quirky yet all blend together to form an amazing cast. The story is so well written that once you start to read this book, you get so immersed in the story that it is hard to put down. The illustrations are delightful. And I loved that the story leaves a cliff hanger so that another book will be coming. The Hero’s Guide to Storming the Castle, the second in the series, is a must read!!!
