MY REVIEW

The Prince tells the story of a young Penny and the wild boy she meets and dreams about saving her from the trailer park. Penny used to live with her mother and her revolving door of boyfriends. After finding her mother in a tub, dead from an apparent overdose, she begins to live with her father, a gambler who can’t seem to stop trying to beat the odds. One day she meets a young almost-man, Damon, who becomes her only friend. He warns her away from THE bad guy in town, his father, who wants to use and hurt her. See, Penny’s a mathematical genius, even at the tender age of 7, and her skills are sought-after. Damon is willing to do whatever it takes to protect her from his father, even sacrifice his own freedom.

I absolutely LOVED Damon. Loved this boy! I can only imagine how much my feelings will grow once I start reading the duet. He was so freaking smart, cute, protective, cunning, with a sweet and dry humor that made me smile. I can’t wait to see more of him. As for Penny, she was precocious, a genius, old before her time, mature beyond her years, brave and sad. I’m crossing my fingers that her life improves in the books to come.

This prequel novella served its purpose and made me hungry for more. More Damon, more mystery, more darkness, just more. I’m off to read The King.
