Once upon a time…
Princess Ava was sent to a neighbouring kingdom as a lady-in-waiting to her sister, their future queen. Until a runaway horse, a case of amnesia and a cold-hearted king conspire to bring her to the prince’s attention.
Now the prince believes Ava is his bride, and her sister is just a serving maid. One thing is certain: the prince must marry one of the princesses, or there will be war.
But when all’s fair in love and war…who will win the battle for the prince’s heart?
Disclaimer: I’ve never read the original GOOSE GIRL. I only vaguely know of it. I’ve read THORN by intisar khanani, which is the extent of my experience with this fairytale.
That being said, I think that Demelza Carlton turned this story on its head in such an interesting way. I was completely immersed in FLY.
I also adore that Carlton doesn’t stick to just one country or one seeming nationality in this series. So far, all three stories in this series have been different backgrounds and I believe that lends a bit of nuance, if you will, to the story.
I am loving this series and am so excited for the next one!
Let me know what you think!
