Writing the Elfyverse . . . and beyond

Just reviewed the last two Hines “Princess” novels at SBR

Folks, if you’re looking for some good, light reading, look no further than Jim C. Hines’s work.  He is a gifted satirist, which I knew from the “Jig the Goblin” series; he’s also good at comedy, puns, and tells a really good story even when the subject is dark.

In Hines’s last two novels in the “Princess” series, we get to see Hines’s conception of what three real princesses who’d gone through what Snow White, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty did would be like.  Hines believes all three of these women, in adulthood, would be seriously competent people — gifted fighters, mages, or possibly both.

Anyway, go take a look at my latest review at Shiny Book Review (SBR), which is for Hines’s last two novels in this series, RED HOOD’S REVENGE, and THE SNOW QUEEN’S SHADOW, and see what you think.
