Review: Stolen Princess by Kelly St Clare

About the book:

Certainty is slipping through my fingers like pirates’ gold.

After escaping to our secret sanctuary, I’m haunted by the guilt of my decision. And the close call with Malice left me with more than doubt—I’m now harboring a magical fugitive.

When Cosmo reveals a darkness is spreading from his wound, our crew must brave capture by our enemies to cure him. But will saving his life leave me in fragments?

Answers to questions I’d rather ignore are forced savagely into the light. An ancient, tribal magic squeezes from all sides, leaving one treacherous path that I must walk beside my crew. Except, for the first time in my life, I’d rather walk alone.

Secrecy is becoming too much like normalcy.
Normalcy has become too much to bear.

What will be left when all is undone and I’m left in tatters?

Review by Katy Haye:

I read Immortal Plunder (check my review) when it first came out, and despite the fact that I love Kelly St Clare’s books, it took me a while to open Stolen Princess, as though I wasn’t sure whether I’d get on with these characters again after the long and lonely weeks had passed.

Utter madness! I was sucked into Ebba’s world within a page.

The Pirates of Felicity series is such fun to read. Ebba’s relationship with her fathers is a delight, and watching her with Cosmo and Jagger was tremendously entertaining.

In the second volume of the series there are twists and turns (some I’d guessed – others slapped me smack in the face), and there was also some glorious depth to the story and especially the relationships. Ebba is increasingly being hit over the head with the awareness that she can’t hide from things she doesn’t want to face forever.

Love, love, loved it – and now I’ve got to wait for the next, sigh…

Katy Haye writes speculative YA fiction. Check out the first book in her new YA fantasy series, Awakened by Magic. Kyann only wants to save her sister, but a greater destiny of myth and magic awaits her in the Empire of Charnrosa.
