I am a huge fan of Disney Retelling and to think that Little Mermaid retelling has been done so I had to grab the book. To kill A Kingdom is a fantastic retelling of the of the Disney Classics. I loved the book so much that I read it in a day. And I totally loved the characters ,story line, pacing and everything.
“In my heart, I’m as wild as the ocean that raised me.”
Well to begin with, the plot corresponds a lot to the that of Little Mermaid. But of course with lots of twists and turn with belief in prophecies and adventure. This book is so much filled with adventure and pirates. The world is fantasy one with amazing characters. I loved the characters because they were so well written and endearing, especially Lira and Elian.
The characters if I talk about Lira, is a Siren who hunts a Prince on each of her Birthday. She is also referred as Princes’ Bane and next In line to become Sea Queen . But by showing her humanity she was expelled from the kingdom and turned into a human by her mother ,Sea Queen and the condition to return is to bring Prince Elian’s heart. Lira is a brave ,bold character who listens to her heart in the book.
The pirate Prince Elian who hunts Sirens in the ocean is swoon worthy, benevolent, heroic and a really nice character. I totally loved loved his character . The brave adventurous Prince has taken my heart as well 😉 . I loved the world also. There were so many different kingdoms, myths and legends present throughout the book and it was very fascinating.
The romance between them is the cherry on the Cake . OMG !!!
The adventure part of finding Second Eye of Keto is also very fun on aboard of the Ship Saad.
I totally loved the book and recommend it to everyone..
“How strange that instead of taking his heart, I’m hoping he takes mine.”
I would definitely be keen to read more from the author, because I really loved this one and it managed to grip me in a way only really good books do.
