For fans of Twisted Tales and Villains is a brand new YA series that retells the classic Disney stories you thought you knew from the Disney Princes' perspectives.

Before Prince Eric’s mother, the Queen of Vellona, went missing two years ago, she reminded him about the details of the deadly curse that has plagued his entire life. The curse? If he were to kiss someone other than his true love, he would die. With a neighboring kingdom looking for any excuse to invade their shores, and rumors of ghost pirates lurking the seas, Eric is desperate for any information that may help him break his enchantment and bring stability to Vellona. The answers he has been searching for come to him in the form of a letter left from his mother that reveals Eric must find his true love, the one with a voice pure of heart,or kill the sea witch responsible for cursing him in the first place.

Now Eric is on a quest to find the Isle of Serein, the witch's legendary home. But after he is rescued by a mysterious young woman with a mesmerizing singing voice, Eric’s heart becomes torn. Does he enter a battle he is almost certain he cannot win or chase a love that might not even exist? And when a shipwrecked young woman with flaming red hair and a smile that could calm the seven seas enters his life, Eric may discover that true love isn’t something that can be decided by magic.

YA Review My Thoughts

Prince of Song & Sea is the first book in a new series called the Princes series. This installment is written by Linsey Miller. I really enjoyed Prince Eric’s story. The Princes series are each going to feature a different prince from a classic disney tale. I love this idea because so much of the focus in Disney stories is on the princess, but it is nice to mix it up and get a glipse into the lives and minds of the Prince as well. This series is going to be perfect for fans of the Twisted Tales books and Villains stories. This young adult series retells the classic Disney stories you thought you knew from the Disney Princes’ perspectives. and if you know me, you know I love a good male POV.

I really enjoyed Prince of Song & Sea. Here we learn that Eric is cursed at birth and he is trying to track down the witch that cursed him to try and reverse it. What is this curse, you might ask? If he were to kiss someone other than his true love, he would die. Pretty scary stuff if you ask me.

This story does follow along pretty closely to the Little Mermaid story we all know and love but there are a couple of twists and turns to keep it interesting, and overall I really enjoyed seeing this familiar tale through a new perspective. I actually felt a lot more invested in Eric and Ariel’s relationship in this story than I did while watching the movie. I felt like I got know Eric so much better through his backstory and his perspective that it added a lot of depth and nuance to the original tale in a good way!

The Prince’s series is going to appeal to fans of the original disney tales and want to relive them from a new perspective. This was a lot of fun, and was a comforting read for me.
