The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson

Hi y'all! Hannah here! I'm doing another book review this one is for The Princess Spy!

In this “Frog Prince” fairy tale retelling, Margaretha has always been a romantic, and hopes her newest suitor, Lord Claybrook, is destined to be her one true love. But then an injured man is brought to Hagenheim Castle, claiming to be an English lord who was attacked by Claybrook and left for dead. And only Margaretha—one of the few who speaks his language—understands the wild story. Margaretha finds herself unable to pass Colin’s message along to her father, the duke, and convinces herself “Lord Colin” is just an addled stranger. Then Colin retrieves an heirloom she lost in a well, and asks her to spy on Claybrook as repayment. Margaretha knows she could never be a spy—not only is she unable to keep anything secret, she’s sure Colin is completely wrong about her potential betrothed. Though when Margaretha overhears Claybrook one day, she discovers her romantic notions may have been clouding her judgment about not only Colin but Claybrook as well. It is up to her to save her father and Hagenheim itself from Claybrook’s wicked plot.

My Review:
This is the last book of the Melanie Dickerson's series. My review for this book is all 5 stars!!! I like it better than the first book and I thought no other book could replace The Healer's Apprentice! (Click HERE to read The Healer's Apprentice review). This book had action, adventure and romance it was an amazing book! I couldn't put it down! Though one thing is I couldn't really find a lot of the "Frog Prince" fairy tell in it except when the called Colin "Frog Boy", which you will find out in the book, but overall I LOVED this book!

Romance: 3 out of 5
Language: 0 out of 5
Violence: 3 out of 5
Age: YA (Young Adult is what the average rating for this book is and I agree)

With the Violence rating, the reason why I put 3 out of 5 is because they do "cut of the head", have some fighting (they are not in it they just say there is one and you know it's going on), and there is someone who killed a girl and a man. The author does not describe this vividly she just tells what happened. I don't think it was very "violent", but other people might think so and that is why I had to put the 3.

Hope y'all enjoyed!
