Publisher's Summary

The League of Princes returns in the hilariously epic conclusion to the hit series that began with Christopher Healy's The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, which the Los Angeles Times called "one of the more clever, hilariously successful incarnations of the current literary rage to rip apart and rewrite fairy tales."
Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You think you know those guys pretty well by now, don't you? Well, think again. Posters plastered across the 13 kingdoms are saying that Briar Rose has been murdered - and the four Princes Charming are the prime suspects. Now they're on the run in a desperate attempt to clear their names. Along the way, however, they discover that Briar's murder is just one part of a nefarious plot to take control of all 13 kingdoms - a plot that will lead to the doorstep of an eerily familiar fortress for a final showdown with an eerily familiar enemy.

what can I say?

I didn't love the ghost/possession bit in a couple chapters. They made total sense with the story. I just really dislike that concept... and there are a few less than kid-friendly moments (not "adult" in the unfortunate modern sense, just beware of how your kid will take or be scared by certain creepy concepts. there are a few in there---and it's fairly intense in a few places).

But....

This was the perfect close to the series. All my petty grievances from the first two books (which were also great to read/listen to---though they they each had a few less than kid-friendly moment's as well) were wrapped up nice and tidyly. I was thoroughly satisfied with the end of the book. It made the whole series work. I look forward to sharing these books with others.

Bronson Pinchot... who remembers Balki Bartokomous? I feel a little bad for Bronson that Balki is the role he's most remembered for... but his character acting is on superb display in this audio book. I've always had a way with reading stories aloud that engage people, but it's as if through this book Bronson has thrown down a gauntlet to me and anyone else who thinks they're good narrators. Well, Mr. Pinchot, I accept and I love this reading. The books are great... truly... and the performance is the best I've ever heard (and I love audio books). I will forever remember Bronson (now) as the guy who threw the gauntlet and narrated The Heroes Guides ... ... and as Balki. what can I say, Balki was part of my childhood.

These books took stories from my childhood, turned them on their ears and, making me laugh out loud, made them somehow better... mostly.
