Little Princess in Fairy Forest is a breathtaking saga of a young princess, Lala, who must fight for her very existence with the last of her royal knights, Gideon Thorn. Her pursuer, the tyrannical Lord Designs Siegfried, will stop at nothing to wed Princess Lala and legitimize his reign—he’s already massacred the rest of the royal family.Princess Lala and Gideon are doggedly pursued even as they flee into the Forbidden Forest, a land relegated to myth and legend because of dragons—the mortal enemies of knights. Join Lala and Gideon as they flee for their lives in an attempt to survive the traitor’s deadly machinations. Gideon is willing to do anything to protect his princess, even if it means engaging the mighty dragons in combat.
I will not restrain my criticism after attempted rape of an adult and the genocidal imagery and mass killing of little girls. This is abhorrent in a story that tries to play cute with a princess getting scared of thunder. The author lacks the tact, understanding, and buildup for serious subjects and should have stayed far away.
You want to have a story where the evil knights and the usurper rough up women and kidnap girls? Fine, go play Wind Waker or read a thousand other stories. Just stay far away from this disgusting and horribly written travesty
A fun little story, but not one I'll ever return to.
Despite the wariness from both characters, they just had to deal with it because Lala was the last in her line and Gideon was the last knight who was honor bound to protect her at all costs. I found Gideon’s reluctance to take responsibility for her endearing because despite his grumbles he would do anything for Lala, including entering into a tenuous co-parenting situation with a dragon. As a knight, Gideon was the one who would hunt down and dispatch dragons but when Lala befriended a dragon, who was referred to as Spike Scales, Gideon and Spike formed a partnership of sorts because they both wanted to protect Lala. I found their “family” dynamics cute and entertaining.
The first half of this book was the story development where the characters were clearly defined as to whether they are good or bad. The villains are villainous but not in the way where it would inspire any kind of hateful feelings, you just understand that they do some truly terrible acts. I will say that I wish the path for Lady Megan had panned out differently, I wasn’t too fond of the direction her character took. Once there was a clear understanding of the characters, that was when the action began and the story really took off. Who can say that air battles that involve a dragon are not cool? Overall, Little Princess in Fairy Forest was a classic fairy tale with all the right elements to make it memorable!
