Red Hood's Revenge by Jim C. Hines, that is. I've been blessed with an ARC. So, here's a glimpse of what's to come:

Readers who only know Jim Hines via his Goblin books should keep in mind that the Princess books are deeper and darker, though still with plenty of chuckles. In fact, one of my favorite things about his books is their ability to make readers both explode with laughter and stop and think- sometimes in mid-laugh.

This book takes our 3 fairy-tale princesses and Roudette the assassin (AKA the Lady of the Red Hood, AKA, well, go ahead, guess!) to Talia's homeland of Arathea. There Talia meets up with old friends, old enemies, and old thorny problems, and we learn more of the story behind the story of Sleeping Beauty, plus why you should never take fairy blessings for granted.

This book's desert setting was an interesting new touch. We also meet some fascinating new characters. I found Talia's mixed reactions to being back in her homeland poignant and one of my favorite parts of the book.

I've enjoyed the entire series so far. The only thing tempering my eagerness for the next book is the knowledge that it's also the last one. If you haven't tried these books yet. by all means, go get 'em!
