The Prince and the Pauper meets fantasy in Sisters of the Snake. Sisters of the Snake, written by Sasha Nanua and Sarena Nanua, is arguably one of the better-written retellings I’ve ever seen. Throughout 500 (plus) pages, it takes on a life of its own.
Princess Rani has always felt like she was trapped in a gilded cage. Sure, she has magic, but it doesn’t feel like she has much else. Meanwhile, Ria is an orphan who has mastered the art of quick hands to survive.
The two have more in common than they could have ever imagined. Their meeting will do more than change their lives – it’s going to change their world, hopefully for the better.
Can I just start by saying that I am thrilled that Sisters of the Snake is getting a sequel? That was the first thing I needed to confirm when I finished reading. I hope that tells you something! This was such a thrilling and fun read!
I love how different Rani and Ria are, and yet they cared so deeply for the people in their lives. You can see how it directly impacts their decisions, as well as how much each one grows throughout this novel. It was, dare I say, inspiring.
Long story short, while Sisters of the Snake may have been inspired by the Prince and the Pauper, it is so much more than that. And I cannot wait to see what happens next.
