Rory Thorne is a princess with thirteen fairy blessings, the most important of which is to see through flattery and platitudes. As the eldest daughter, she always imagined she'd inherit her father's throne and govern the interplanetary Thorne Consortium. Then her father is assassinated, her mother gives birth to a son, and Rory is betrothed to the prince of a distant world. When Rory arrives in her new home, she uncovers a treacherous plot to unseat her newly betrothed and usurp his throne. An unscrupulous minister has conspired to name himself Regent to the minor (and somewhat foolish) prince. With only her wits and a small team of allies, Rory must outmaneuver the Regent and rescue the prince. How Rory Thorne Destroyed the Multiverse is a feminist reimagining of familiar fairytale tropes and a story of resistance and self-determination—how small acts of rebellion can lead a princess to not just save herself, but change the course of history.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Fun and feminist, unique and stylish, with a heroine who’ll steal your heart.” Delilah S. Dawson, New York Times-bestselling author
“Nicole Poole…imbues the stock fairy-tale characters who populate the story with life and depth, going beyond the traditional portrayal…to create fully realized individuals who burst out of their stereotypical molds. However, it is Poole’s work as the omniscient, sarcastic, and droll narrator that is truly the most outstanding element of her entirely stellar performance. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Readers will be clamoring for the second installment before Chapter One is over…Do not, under any circumstances, miss out on this.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Eason adds a feminist modern twist to fairy tale and sf tropes while presenting an intergalactic adventure that enthralls in its own right.” Booklist (starred review)
