This retelling of the classic fairy tale, The Princess and the Pea, reimagines the risks and rewards that come when one royal family goes searching for a true princess.

The Princess Companion: A Retelling of The Princess and the Pea (The Four Kingdoms, # 1)No matter what your go-to genre is, admit it, you still like well-told fairytales. Here’s your chance to enjoy the re-telling of The Princess and the Pea, thanks to Melanie Cellier’s The Princess Companion!
In unsettling times, political alliances must be made, but the Queen still wants true love for her son. Who knew a dark and stormy night would bring a bedraggled woodcutter’s daughter to the castle door? Who could have known that strong-willed and resourceful girl could change the destiny of her kingdom all by sleeping in the most uncomfortable bed, ever? Of course she is mindful enough to never mention it…and so our tale begins…

Alyssa, through a chain of events, has assumed the role of Princess Companion to two adorable, although unruly twin Princesses. Yet even Alyssa had no idea the impact that the handsome prince would have on her heart, not that she would even be considered to be his queen.

Follow along as Melanie Cellier weaves a tale of magic, intrigue, young love and danger as one princess after another is paraded before the court. Some will prove great allies while others may have their own brand of deceit that will put everyone in danger. It may be up to one woodcutter’s daughter and the alliances she has formed to try to save the day, even though it may be too late to save her heart from breaking.

Completely entertaining, magical and told in the true sense of great fairytales, Melanie Cellier has brought our childhood fantasies back to life with a fresh take, strong characters and one hard-headed, intelligent girl with a heart of gold.
