In exchange for an honest review

Space, ruled by different people, isn't that how it always is. Rory is a princess, 13 fairies show up to give her gifts (why hadn't fairies been seen for 500 years? And that means fairies where from earth?)

Anyway, her dad is assassinated, her brother is a little d*ck. She is sent to marry a prince, cos alliances are always needed.

I would have liked to learn more about the universe, the aliens? I know nothing about them. And more about these different worlds and where they were. But it was still an interesting concept. 

I liked Rory, she was not tough or kick-ass, she was just normal and can see through BS thanks to gifts/curses.

And then she wrecks the multiverse, just as the title says. It ends and it feels like an ending, but it seems more is to come, which is weird, cos it really felt like an ending.

Good book, YA, but never felt YA (which that I mean no triangle, no angst, no bs ;) Wait, is it even YA? Cos it sure did not feel adult either so I will call it YA.

Narration
Good narrator. I have listened to her before. Though at times she did loose who was talking, but for most of the time there were distinct voices

Rory Thorne is a princess with 13 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.

  5. It sounds good, I don't read too much YA but sometimes I do enjoy a good love triangle. Interesting that this one didn't have it.

  7. Glad you enjoyed it, even if it wasn't exactly what was expected. I didn't call it YA because we get so many POVs - not just Rory. And there will be more I think, but maybe not Rory? I don't know but I found it really entertaining.

  8. I love the cover, and the power of a girl to ruin the universe. Sounds like my kind of jam. :)
