The Reclaimed Kingdom by Dana Claire

Book Description:

Under the cruel ministrations of its Queen, the Kingdom of D’Land is in peril. With King Harrison away in foreign lands and neighboring Kingdoms unwilling to intervene, there is no one to protect the people from poverty, harsh punishment, and unreasonable rules of law – except for the Band of Brothers. Struggling with the death of her mother and the legendary Syphon powers she inherited, seventeen year old Dru wants nothing more than to escape her old life and join the motley crew of ruffians, pilfering from the rich to feed the poor and pay their taxes. She’s able to do just that disguised as a lad, and even when her nature is discovered, nothing changes – except for the way her friend Hawkin treats her. But Dru’s new world is overturned when she and the Brothers seize the treasures of a Prince who threatens to reveal her identity. Together, Dru and her chosen family must find a way to reclaim her destiny and bring balance to the Kingdom. If not, there may be no hope left for anyone.

My Thoughts:

This is the first book by this author that I read, but it won't be the last.  She has a way of making you want to read more and get to know the characters even better.  This is somewhat a mixture of a Snow White and Robin Hood mixture retelling.  The characters are great and there are twists.

The conversations were great and had me snickering.  There is whit involved and Dru wasn't the normal princess.  She was better.  I liked the guys in the story as well.  The love triangle was a well written part of it and I can't wait to read more.
