Kingdom of Thieves (Forbidden Fairytales, Book 1)
by Caroline Peckham
How to win a Princess:
1. Bring her father unspeakable amounts of wealth to enter a month-long competition.
2. Defeat all other suitors in hand-to-hand combat with your honour intact (and balls – heirs needed).
3. Be revered by every citizen in the kingdom for being a ‘hero’ amongst men. (Also known as a jackass).
4. Wear the pretty Princess on your arm while occupying her kingdom and claiming a right to the throne she isn’t allowed to sit on alone.
Aladdin doesn’t care about princesses, or much else for that matter.
The one thing he does care about? Gold.
And when he crosses paths with a traitor of the kingdom, he has a chance to get his hands on more than he ever could have dreamed of.
There’s only one rule: he can have everything in the hidden cave except a mysterious lamp.
But Aladdin doesn’t do rules.
