Publisher's Summary

This is one crown you don’t want.

Born and raised in the Dregs, the last thing I expected was the “honor” of being recruited to Crown Princess Academy. And by honor, I mean fighting for my life against the fae that rule our world.

Our first exam is in three weeks, and not every student will make it out alive...don’t these bimbos realize that? I’m not fooled. I know how ruthless the fae can be.

All the princess initiates are captivated by Lucas, the sexy fae crown prince who, in turn, seems fixated on me. He can’t know that I’m actually the most powerful Malice Caster in the Dregs. I’m sure my talents for the Criminal Guild won’t earn me any extra credit in my princess classes.

All my life I’ve stayed one step ahead of the two-faced fae and their Malice, the out-of-control black magic that has nearly wiped out all of humanity. This is my chance to do more than survive - this is my chance to fight back.

I’ll play the crown prince’s game. I’ll wear the tiny initiate crown, dance in my glittering pink dress, survive the deadly exams, and ultimately graduate as the crown princess all while he thinks I’m playing right into his plans.

He’s in for a surprise when I reveal who I am and wipe that sexy, smug grin off his face.... I just hope my heart doesn’t forget he’s the enemy.

Crown Princess Academy: Book 1 is the first of a planned trilogy. As it is a series, there will be a cliff-hanger. This is an upper YA/NA paranormal and fantasy series with enemies-to-lovers romance and HEA.

Dark Fae delight

Do you love dark fae? This deceptively light, airy cover hides a delightfully complex story with a ferociously loyal main character. Penne’s life has been tough, but with her ability to weird Malice, she’s had both freedom and prestige. Lee does a great job capturing her disbelief when Penne finds herself accidentally enrolled at the Crown Princess Academy, learning to utilize light magic that could destroy her Malice, her very identity if she’s not careful. With malicious Fae, Monsters in the woods, and rivals for the crown willing to do whatever it takes to see Penne fail, this is one intriguing adventure from start to finish. I cannot wait to listen to book two!

Such A Great Heroine

Penne is one of the most powerful malice casters in the world and has a heart of gold . I loved the banter between penne and Lucas . I absolutely enjoyed the competition with the crown princess candidates . Finding out who Steel was through me for a loop and I can't wait to learn more about him . I don't know much about Steel but he was always there for Penne so I hope he gets a happily ever after . Lee gave a wonderful performance with all of the characters especially Steel ♥.

Good start to the series

This was a nice twist on light and dark fae. Based on the cover I wasn’t expecting it to be more dark. Interested in learning more about the other realms and characters.

Thrilling Listen!

I really enjoyed this twist on fea and light/dark magic! The narrator was great and the story held my attention, I couldn't stop listening! I am dying to know what happens next though, looking forward to learning more about Steel and the other realms!

Super excited for book 2!

First holy crap that ending! Who is good guy and who is the bad? And is humanity just caught in the middle or will they come out on top with the FMC at the head. The narrator did a great job! Distinguishing between the different characters. I really enjoyed how she did each character. Zeezee is probably my favorite. I really liked the FMC. She is strong and selfless. I was so mad at Lucien during the trials. But I understand why he did it. But was all the planning for nothing??? I need book 2 like now. Penne is strong and her connection to Steal?? And how do Steal and Lucien come into this war. There is so much depth in the characters and the worlds in this world that book 2 could go any way. No way to know!

Love Penne & Lucas!!

Penne is a great heroine. She is a powerful Malice caster and she has to hide her true identity while at the academy. Can she survive her time at the academy? Baby boy Fae, Lucas is the sexy Fae prince who has his eye on Penne. I loved the interaction between Penne and Lucas. I enjoyed learnings about the world and it’s humans, dregs, and Fae. I thought it was a interesting story. While it does leave you in a cliffhanger I don’t think it’s such a bad cliffhanger. Just leaves you wanting more. I listened to the audiobook and I enjoyed listening to Carolyn Lee. She brought another level to the narration. I thought she was a perfect blend for Penne and the other two that are in Penne’s head so to speak. Looking forward to the next installment.

Very enjoyable

I just couldn't stop, once I started. The Journey, Penny found herself on had been more than what she bargained for, but rescuing another person. Holds consequences of some level. Finding herself in the Queen’s class. Penny found friendship through something that was more than light or darkness. As her light and dark now merge together. What strength will she have now when dealing with both the light and dark.

Loved it!

I received a free audiobook copy from the author in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own. If you liked the Selection, you NEED to read this book!! Penne has lived her life in the Dregs, or the bad side of town. As a Malice caster, there isn't much more she can look forward to, especially with the Fae in charge due to their hatred of Malice. But when Penne is selected by one of the Crown Princess crowns, she's in for a new world at Crown Princess Academy. If she wins, she becomes the Crown Princess and one step closer to her goal of overthrowing the Fae. This story alternates between Penne's POV and Crown Prince Lucas. I loved the banter between these two and the fact that they're basically working towards the same goal but don't know it. It was so funny to see them dance around each other, try to manipulate each other all while being ridiculously attracted to each other. Crown Princess Academy was a fun story that constantly made me smile. I loved this world and the characters. I cannot wait to see what will happen in book 2!

I loved it!

I loved this book. The world was unique and I liked how each type of power worked differently than what you would have expected. I enjoyed the dynamic between Penne and Lucas; I found myself grinning during their banter. That being said, I really hope Steel plays a bigger part in the next book. I definitely recommend checking this book out.
