The Traitor Prince by C.J. Redwine
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I got The Traitor Prince from my library and actually checked out the hardback instead of the ebook. My library didn’t have the ebook until the day the library book was due two weeks later and after I spent all weekend fervently trying to finish it.
I ended up finishing this book on Saturday thankfully even though the book was due on Monday. I REALLY wanted to finish it. It wasn’t the best story of the year, but I thought it was still well written. It was like the Prince and the Pauper, Aladdin and The Lion King all rolled together.
There was a character who was pretty much like Scar from The Lion King, and the main character reminded me of Aladdin, and the girl character reminded me of Jasmine. And the author said it had a dash of the Pauper story in it.
That cover was really pretty too. I liked how dark it seemed and I am normally not one for dark stories. This is a four star read since it ended up leaving me pleasantly surprised by it. I’d recommend this to anybody who likes fairy tale retellings with a slightly twisted edge to it.
