“The Princess Bride meets Game of Thrones” – Kirkus Reviews on The Queen Will Betray You
From acclaimed author Sarah Henning comes the epic YA fantasy adventure trilogy The Kingdoms of Sand and Sky, an homage to The Princess Bride. Fans will delight in the witty and clever details that reference the beloved classic, while also appreciating the fresh, feminist spin Henning puts on classic fantasy tropes in truly original and imaginative tales that completely stand on their own. In The Princess Will Save You, Princess Amarande rides to the rescue of her true love, stableboy Luca, when he is kidnapped by a trio of pirates in a plot to blackmail her into a political marriage. In the sequel, The Queen Will Betray You, Princess Amarande and her love must part: Amarande to reclaim her kingdom, and Luca to raise a rebellion.
“An action-packed adventure with a fierce heroine that is sure to enthrall! Sarah Henning has created a fantasy narrative that weaves together love and betrayal, pirates and swordplay. Sure to please anyone who grew up loving tales of princesses.” —Emily Lloyd-Jones, author of The Bone Houses
