To save her kingdom, a simple village girl must live a royal lie.

The powerful kingdom of Sigurd has slowly been conquering all the lands that share its borders, and now it has turned its voracious attention to the small, resource-rich Tyr. Tyr cannot hope to match Sigurd in strength, so in order to survive, it must rely on the intelligence, skill and cunning of its prince and his loyal knights. But should their prince fall, so too shall Tyr…

Freya thinks of herself as a simple village girl, but her idyllic life is shattered when she is caught up in the aftermath of a treacherous Sigurdian plot. She bears a striking resemblance to her country’s beloved Prince Edvard, who lays dying from poison. Without its ruler, all of Tyr will quickly be engulfed by Sigurdian violence. Now Freya must take Prince Edvard’s place and lead his valiant knights in defending the realm!


Prince Freya is a really fun story and I was instantly caught up in the world and the characters. I liked the premise and I can see there will be many great opportunities to develop Freya's character as the tale continues. The artwork in this series is stunning, and for me that was as big a draw as the story itself. This is a book that captured my interest enough that I would be keen to read on, given the opportunity. I would like to see how things go for Freya and the others as the adventure continues.

I received this book as a free eBook ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
