So This Is Ever After

Gr 8 Up–Inimitable Kevin R. Free returns for another happily ever after match with bestselling author Lukens. As the story begins, the hardest part is over—right? Arek and his BFFs have beheaded the Vile One, saving the realm of Chickpea. Until the rightful heir is restored, Arek agrees to assume the throne—temporarily. Except the princess was trapped in the tower so long that she’s...dead. Not only must Arek rule, but unless he finds a soulmate by his 18th birthday, he’ll fade away. Literally. His wooing efforts all misfire—even as his one true love is right there by his side. Free effervescently voices the motley crew—King Arek, mage Matt, fae Lila, bard Bethany, warrior Sionna, knight Rion—but he bestows his finest performance on Harlow, the dignified (disdaining) steward of the castle.
VERDICT Even when the narrative occasionally drags, Free advances with irresistible glee.
