Frank Blackthorne, a thief on the run from a band of demon-worshiping cultists, is hired to save the Princess Lucille from a knight-eating dragon in return for riches, glory, and an escape from the cultists after his blood. But why would anyone hire a thief to rescue a princess? Frank is in no position to refuse, but soon everything turns out worse than he could have imagined. Due to some wildly misapplied magic, Frank is in Princess Lucille's body, she's in the body of the dragon, and they have to team up against thugs, slavers, elvish bookies, and a host of other baddies to set things right.

This is exactly the sort of fun-filled romp through cliche fantasy tropes that fuels my used book store wanderings.

Frank is a professional thief who finds himself on the run from the cult of the Dark Lord Natalc after a heist gone spectacularly awry. So when Lendowyn’s court wizard, Elhared the Unwise, hires him to save the princess from a dragon in return for wealth, glory, and protection from evil cultists, he’s not in a position to refuse. Of course, foreshadowed by the wizard’s own name, that endeavor also goes spectacularly awry.

Insert the classic bodyswap! Frank finds himself inhabiting the body of Princess Lucille, who is understandably pissed and also a dragon. In order to get back into their original bodies they have to team up and track down the source of the magic (not to mention Frank’s body).

It’s a comedy of errors and mistaken identities with some surprisingly deep and touching moments hidden in the mix there. And while this adventure is fairy tale trope heaven, every single one of those gets turned on its head somehow so that the story itself remains campy but never cliche. Or perhaps cliche in the best of ways.

This is a fun look at a M/F body swap. Themes and descriptions may be a bit more than necessary for those younger than 15. Fun over all.
