To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

To kill a kingdom

Amazon | Goodreads

Fantasy (Stand Alone)


What is it about?

It’s about a siren (prettier than a mermaid and with an enchanting singing voice) who kills a prince for her birthday every year in order to please her evil Sea Queen mother.

It’s about a prince who feels more at home on the ocean, and whose main priority is ridding the world of the evil that is the Sea Queen and her daughter, The Prince’s Bane.

It’s about what happens when the fate of these two creatures intertwines.

Was it good?

It reminded me of a more brutal version of what I remember from The Little Mermaid. The story was interesting and exciting. I didn’t love the banter between the two main characters; I felt that most of the things they were saying as a joke was just plain mean. I also, therefore, couldn’t really believe the romance aspect of this story.

Overall, I think it was a good story. If you like pirates, mermaids or sirens, a prince, ships, adventure, or magical objects, than I think you will like this book.
