    One thought on “Princess Ahira”

    1. I love K.M. Shea's books and this one is no exception. A hilarious story about a princess who gets kidnapped and selected to be a live-in princess to the offbeat dragon, Azmaveth. Ahira is not quite a damsel in distress and is perfectly happy to take care of a dragon's cave, that is, until the annoying steward shows up. This story will keep you laughing, and turning the pages for more. Highly recommended to anyone who likes fairy tales with a twist, and strong female characters.

    2. 4.5 Stars By the end of chapter 3 Shea had me hooked. For those looking for a lighthearted and humorous tale this is sure to delight! Sure there are some predictable parts, a few cheesy ones too, but I loved how it poked fun and threw a few twists in on some traditional fairytale traditions. It truly was a fun read and had me laughing out loud a few times; it definitely had me grinning. I will note that there are several editing errors. One big one where the wrong name is used, but otherwise min [...]

    3. OMG, this was just what the doctor ordered! This book was the first time I was exposed to K.M. Shea's writing. When I first got this book years ago the cover and description were very different. It didn't really look like much going in, but I was in need of a light read after a particularly stressful workday. I couldn't have chosen better. While reading this book, I laughed so hard that I cried. Family members actually came upstairs to see if I was all right! Ahira and Azmaveth's banter is ridic [...]

    4. A fun, silly and easy read that I really enjoyed.Story follows Princess Ahira who is kidnapped by a dragon on her 16th birthday. She and a few other princesses who were also kidnapped are allocated to dragons. Ahira ends up with Azmaveth a fairly young dragon who is very messy, an inventor and generally not sure what to do with his new pet princess.I loved both Ahira and Azmaveth and the relationship between them. Ahira likes to think of herself as different to normal princesses. She is quite fe [...]

    5. WARNING: DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE A HUMAN SPELL-CHECK OR A GRAMMAR NAZI (its' self published and yah even i noticed some spelling errors.) That being said, i thoroughly liked this book. It was fun, clean, and more than that, it was interesting. Some will compare it to "Dealing with Dragons" by Patricia C. Wrede, but i respectfully disagree. The only thing these two books have in common is, Princesses, Dragons, annoying Wizards, and a cave. If you can take those few things and say it's a copy, then [...]

    6. This one worried me a little as it got started. I just finished reading Dealing with Dragons by Patricia Wrede and this book started out so similarly I thought it might be a retelling of that story. I didn't like that story very much but I have so much faith in Shea's writing that I kept reading knowing this would get better and it did!. I loved it, it was so fun to read. She must be an independent author with a friend as an editor, but don't let that put you off reading her books they are fun a [...]

    7. 4.5 StarsSuper fun and cute, could'nt put it down. Light and a perfect read if you are looking for romance, magic and not anything too brain stressing. :o) Wish there would've been a little bit more romanced I guessed the "mystery" from the get-go, but still enjoyed it. Liked some of the mentions of other fairy-tale princesses like Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty. And thought some of the mondern day quips in there were funny.Moral Note: Some mild fantasy violence, romance clean, language clean.

    8. I'd say 4,5 stars. A cute little book, lighthearted and sweet. My only objection were those impossible names that I couldn't really imagine how one should pronounce.

    9. Witty, smart, hilarious.This book literally made me laugh out loud. There are some clever moments are were unexpected and refreshing. This is more of a young adult book, but very enjoyable.

    10. I really liked this book. the characters were original and loveable. Especially the dragons. I'll definitely read more of this writer's work.

    11. IT'S BEEN DONE! But that doesn't mean I didn't like reading a different interpretation. It was funny and interesting with adorable moments.

    12. I admit, my main motivation for reading this one was to satisfy both the genre and key word challenges for April. However, I was also excited to read it after the description brought back memories of one of my favorite childhood stories, Patricia C. Wrede's Dealing With Dragons. With nontraditional princesses, intelligent dragons, and a few fairytale throwbacks, I eagerly dove in.And soon wished I had just re-read Dealing With Dragons.Princess Ahira may not be Somino's average princess, but she [...]

    13. I always enjoy Kitty's books, they bring a smile to my face and I'm usually chuckling about something. When I started this one it was late at night and I had to make myself put it down because you know I had to go to work in the morning. I liked Princess Ahira, she was an interesting character, I loved the fact she tended to skip class, and it wasn't so much she went looking for more lessons, such as fighting, horseback, etc, but she was legit playing hooky and wasn't really looking to learn any [...]

    14. Princess Ahira was an easy read and great fun. Shea has great fun laughing at fairy tales and has done a great job writing from the perspective of someone accustomed to all the things found in fairy tales. The story was well told throughout. While I had trouble putting down the book because I was enjoying it so much, I did find that it could have used probably one more editing pass to catch spelling and grammar issues. I noticed this enough to drop it down a star. If you’re looking for a funny [...]

    15. I am usually a big fan of the non traditional princess who ends up working with a dragon, but it constantly reminded me of Wrede's Dealing with Dragons, which executed the concept with more charm. I figured out what Kohath's secret was pretty early on so that was not too much of a surprise and the battle was a little anticlimactic.

    16. What a delightful read! I loved the characters and enjoyed the light-hardheartedness of the story. Many laugh-out-loud moments occurred as well as touching scenes between the characters. Overall, an excellent read :)

    17. I love how this book is about dragons kidnapping princesses. It's a fun adventure and I would recommend this book to all fairytale lovers.

    18. Loved it!I absolutely loved this book! Ahira is sarcastic and sassy. She is a fine example of a well developed character.

    19. Sweet bookThe book needs some editing and the climax appeared a bit rushed , but otherwise it is a cute light read.

    20. The Errors Oh The ErrorsThe errors, errors, errors were so annoying. Doesn't anyone proofread anymore?Fix the hundred or so errors an this could be 4 stars.

    21. This book was absolutely adorable. I love Azmaveth and Ahira! I think this might be my new favorites of K.M. Shea's books.

    22. The Plot: On her sixteenth birthday, Ahira, an unconventional princess, is abducted by dragons and becomes the personal captive princess of Azmaveth, a friendly duke of the dragons. During her stay among the dragons, Ahira has several adventures and befriends Azmaveth's human steward, Kohath, and a wizard, Aaron. When war (led by the Valkyries) looms over the dragons, Ahira must find a way to help her new friends.The Verdict: Princess Ahira is not incredibly original and has several flaws, but i [...]

    23. Cerita ini berhasil bikin baper. Hiks. walaupun jalan ceritanya sederhana, tentang seorang putri yang diculik ama Naga, tapi karakternya bikin terenyuhbut saja Ahira, dia ini kick ass tapi juga adorable. suka dimarahi sang ratu gara2 berkelakuan tidak seperti tuan putri. berpakaian laki-laki. mengobrol ama staf dapur dan istal. sampai pas hari ulang tahunnya ke 16, dia diculik ama seekor naga.Azmerth, sang naga yang menculik dan menjadi rekanan Ahira juga ga kalah seru. Naga di sini bisa ngomong [...]

    24. I really enjoyed this book there was enough independence without being overly feminist. The characters were fun to read. I was laughing out loud! I love the little twists to the story and how the other fantastical creatures were. It was not as serious or I guess meant for young adolescent readers, so it didn't have the same feel asCinderella and the Colonel(same author READ IT!) or other books written by her. I loved the dragons as not to be a spoiler I will vaguely imply things here lol.I wish [...]

    25. I really enjoyed this book. The characters, story, and world were incredibly enjoyable! The story started off very reminiscent of Dealing With Dragons by Patricia Wrede, but as the story progressed it developed into its own original fairy tale complete with magic, romance, adventure, enchanted creatures, and, of course, Dragons. I especially loved the side stories of well known fairy tales inserted seamlessly into the narrative, sometimes authors try to do this too much and it makes things a bit [...]

    26. I really enjoyed this, it was a really light fun read but there were a few things that were annoying me. Firstly I don't know why the dragons kidnap princesses, it just seems to be something that they do, there's no reason ever given, the dragons don't seem to particularly like having the princesses around for the most part and while Ahira decides to become a domestic servant the princesses don't seem to do anything to help.It also really annoyed me that Ahira decided her job was to cook and cle [...]

    27. WOW! This was 100% Awesome! Princess Ahira gets kidnapped by a cowardly dragon who doesn't have a really clear idea of why dragons have to kidnap princesses But soon he decides it was a great thing! Except for the random princes and traveling sales wizards that now dog his door, not to mention the annoying stalker mage Ahira is having the time of her life. No need to act like a pathetic princess, she can now do something useful, and for her friend the dragon Azmaveth, who is great company and a [...]

    28. a sweet little fairytaleThis seems like a good fairytale for younger YA fantasy readers. The heroine, Ahira, is a princess who is a middle child in her royal family & therefore able to fight back against the stereotypes of how a princess is supposed to be. When she is kidnapped by dragons on her 16th birthday, Azmaveth, the dragon she's given to, doesn't have doesn't have much expectation about who she should be or how she should act & an easy friendship blossoms. Since she has always be [...]
