To Kill a Kingdom Book Review

"A princess must have her prince." What's your favorite fairy tale retelling? Alexandra Christo's To Kill a Kingdom is a dark retelling of The Little Mermaid, & the story was everything I had hoped it would be! Definitely not one of those books that don't live up to the hype! It was sassy & action packed, with just the right amount of blood & romance, & contained lush, unique world building that was super easy to get lost in. I loved every watery, shadowed nook & cranny of this book, from the most attention-catching first line I've read in a while to Allie's fresh take on the mermaids vs. sirens myth & the devil-may-care attitude of the pirates. Plus, can I just say that the sea queen/sea witch was awesome?! 5 out of 5 stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Princess Lira is siren royalty and the most lethal of them all. With the hearts of seventeen princes in her collection, she is revered across the sea. Until a twist of fate forces her to kill one of her own. To punish her daughter, the Sea Queen transforms Lira into the one thing they loathe most—a human. Robbed of her song, Lira has until the winter solstice to deliver Prince Elian’s heart to the Sea Queen or remain a human forever. The ocean is the only place Prince Elian calls home, even though he is heir to the most powerful kingdom in the world. Hunting sirens is more than an unsavory hobby—it’s his calling. When he rescues a drowning woman in the ocean, she’s more than what she appears. She promises to help him find the key to destroying all of sirenkind for good—But can he trust her? And just how many deals will Elian have to barter to eliminate mankind’s greatest enemy? **** #ToKillaKingdom #bookreview #mermaids #sirens #pirates #thelittlemermaid #bookstagram #bookish #bookishfeatures #bookaddict #booknerd #bookphoto #booklover #bookworm #bookblog #bookblogger #darkfantasy #fairytaleretelling
