Apolline is happy hunting magical creatures on her pirate infested outer-perimeter planet. She is a fantastic shot, and doesn't flinch at the blood and guts of her kills. Never once did she consider she could be the missing Princess of Tyrone. All her life, she has heard the story of the Princess, cursed to sleep for eternity, unless her betrothed, the Prince of Oran, gave her true love's kiss. Although Apolline knows she is betrothed, she thinks her fairy guardians arranged it out of ignorance of human ways. The thought she could be a princess is inconceivable. Then Allard appears. Handsome, charming-but he's not hers to have. He's betrothed, too. Her guardians warn her against her new found friendship, but she and Allard meet in secret anyway. Despite her rough exterior, he sees beyond her gun-slinging bravado, and their love blossoms. But the deadline for the sleeping curse is approaching. If Apolline falls in love with the wrong person, she could end up sleeping forever. A quirky, adventurous retelling of Sleeping Beauty, with a less than princess-ly princess!… (mais)

I'd initially missed out on Princess of Tyrone, but with Myths of Mish coming, I decided to give it a try. I'm a bit picky when it comes to fairy tale retellings, so please bear with me.

Young Appoline doesn't know anything besides her life in a small cottage in the woods, almost hidden away, raised by her three fairy godmothers (who for the record, are almost as cringeworthy as the ones from the movie Maleficent, and make her recite fairy tales at random). Either way, since there is space travel in this universe, she meets a young prince pretending (but utterly failing) to pass as a commoner. They spend most of the book wondering about their respective matches, as both have been betrothed since birth, as of course, all commoners are. The rest, as they say, doesn't really come as a surprise for the reader.

I wasn't sure what to expect, and I can't really say whether or not I found it with Princess of Tyrone. While it certainly was a quick and easy read, I kept thinking to myself that it was all a little bit too obvious. There was no real surprise, everything fitted together a bit too well for my taste. Also, the space travel and general fairy tale mix up was a nice touch but didn't seem to add to the story really. I hope Myths of Mish will be more up my alley.

Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! ( )

**I received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and not influenced by my source.**

Sleeping Beauty is one of my favourite fairy tales and so I am always on the lookout for great retellings. And it gets bonus points for being a science fiction retelling.

The plot is definitely more romance and character based for the first half of the book. Apolline and Allard are trying to balance out their new-found relationship and their obligations and it's cute to watch. I thought they were super adorable together so I didn't mind the slower pace though I craved a little more to the story.

What I craved makes an appearance in the later half of the book and that was when I couldn't put the story down. When the everything comes together and character pasts and identifies are revealed, it was so much fun to read! This book definitely built itself up and it was worth it!

While the characters are definitely of the "New Adult" variety (ie 21), this story read more like a Young Adult novel. Meaning it isn't some hot, passionate romance that you are watching unfold, rather a tame, emotional connection. I think this is a great novel for those looking to jump into the New Adult world from the YA one or for those who are tired of contemporary NA reads.
