When a beautiful princess is abducted at a coming-of-age party, Princess Rhis comes to the rescue. In the process, Rhis learns about love and friendship. Emma Galvan, narrator of the famous Divergent series, is a real YA voice talent. Her performance is bright and honest. She captures the sweet tone while keeping a bit of an edge in her voice. Young listeners seeking romance, fantasy, and adventure will feel at home in Sherwood Smith's A Posse of Princesses.
Rhis, princess of a small kingdom, is invited along with all the other princesses in her part of the world to the coming of age party of the Crown Prince of Vesarja, which is the central and most important kingdom. When Iardith, the prettiest and most perfect of all the princesses, is abducted, Rhis and her friends go to the rescue.
What happens to Rhis and her posse has unexpected results not only for the princesses, but for the princes who chase after them. Everyone learns a lot about friendship and hate, politics and laughter, romantic ballads and sleeping in the dirt with nothing but a sword for company. But most of all they learn about the many meanings of love.

If you go by the audiobook you might not like it because the narrator is not a good fit. I couldn't stand her voice so switched to the ebook, which was really good. I don't like much in the YA genre but Sherwood Smith does an excellent job writing strong, smart female characters and an interesting story.
