Overview

The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw (Hero's Guide Series #3) by Christopher Healy, Todd Harris

The League of Princes returns in the hilariously epic conclusion to Christopher Healy's hit series, which Kirkus Reviews called "part screwball comedy, part sly wit, and all fun" in a starred review!

Prince Liam. Prince Frederic. Prince Duncan. Prince Gustav. You think you know those guys pretty well by now, don't you? Well, think again. Posters plastered across the thirteen kingdoms are saying that Briar Rose has been murdered—and the four Princes Charming are the prime suspects. Now they're on the run in a desperate attempt to clear their names. Along the way, however, they discover that Briar's murder is just one part of a nefarious plot to take control of all thirteen kingdoms—a plot that will lead to the doorstep of an eerily familiar fortress for a final showdown with an eerily familiar enemy.

The biggest problem with this book is that it's the last one. In fact, that's the only problem with this book. Why did the series have to end? I'm considering a fundraising campaign to bribe the author and illustrator into writing more books. If that doesn't work, I may have to kidnap them both and lock them in my crawlspace until they finish, at a minimum, 27 more books. Or until they get a movie deal, whichever comes first. As with the first two books, I laughed the whole way through all 500 pages of The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw. Christopher Healy must have a joke Rolodex that he consults, because I don't see how one man can come up with so much outrageous humor by himself. I loved every last page of this book. The characters are as entertaining as ever. Liam and his obsession with capes is still high on my list of Things I Love About the League. I also adore Lila and her ability to charm everyone, especially Ruffian the Blue. I love the friendship between all of the League members (even Briar). Deeb Rauber is as horrid and hilarious as always, and he is still my favorite villain. If you haven't read these books, start at the beginning with The Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom, and work your way through the series. They are definitely worth the read. Be prepared to laugh! Highly recommended for anyone, young and old, that appreciates a hearty chuckle. Content: Clean

Before reading the book I read the other two books and I looked at the title and cover I thought it would be about the league becoming outlaws. Also, I thought they were going to steal a boat and go explore the seas. After reading the book I was very mad, curious, and I actually wished there was more to read. Also, I was shocked on what went on when I was reading and with the characters. I did not expect what happened to really happen. All though I still loved the book. This book is fantasy and is by Christopher Healy. The main characters are from the league of princes and ffff. The princes are Gustav, Liam, Duncan, and Fredric. The princesses are Lilla, Ella, Rapunzel, Snow White, and Briar Rose. Someone frames them as if the killed Briar and go to find her. They end up on an island and find her then they find there way out and they also find out Rundark is alive and go to defeat him. If you want to know more go and read the book. One reason why I liked the book is the league and ffff join forces and go to save the thirteen kingdoms. Another reason why I liked the book is because they make very good plans to defeat Rundark. Those are my favorite parts because they are the most action packed parts and are most entertaining. Lastly, I also like when they go into battle and they either defete or don't defeat Rundark. I really enjoyed the book. I think this book is better for kids in secondary school. If you like fairy tales then you will enjoy this book. Lastly, I would recommend you remember what is going on in all thirteen kingdoms.

Go ffff! (If you read the book, you'll know what I'm talking about) I hope they make a movie! Lila, Ella, Rapunzel, & Snow are my heroes! The characters keep me laughing and I keep re-reading the series because SOMEONE won't write another sequel. They should make an after story so I can find out what happens to the characters. The epilouge wasn't enough! Will the league ever get things right the first try? Am I the only one who will probably write fanfiction for this?

Framed for Murder and on the Run As this book opens, tragedy has struck the kingdom of Avondell. The princess Briar Rose has been murdered. While the kingdom goes into mourning (obviously by subjects who don’t know her well), the decree goes out to arrest the League of Princes and their accomplices (you know, people like Snow White, Ella, and Rapunzel) for this horrible crime. With the reward being untold riches, every bounty hunter in the Thirteen Kingdoms is after our heroes. As crazy as it sounds, the Princes do have motive based on what Briar Rose has done to them in the past. But they are innocent of the crime, and they figure the only way to save themselves and their friends is to find the real killer. What no one realizes is that this is merely part of a fiendish plot to take over all of the Thirteen Kingdoms. Can the Princes clear their name? Will they be able to defeat this new plot as well? One reason I was anxious to read this book was the character arcs from the previous book. I could tell where some of these things were going to go, and I was anxious to see if I was right. I’m pleased to say I am very happy with where the characters wound up at the end of this book. No real surprises there, but the target Middle Grade audience might not pick up on the arcs as easily as I did as an adult. And, it’s not a bad thing at all to leave us with happily ever after, especially for a fairy tale series. Where the surprises came into play was the plot. This book is about 515 pages long, and I was never bored. The story moves forward quickly with plenty of action. I saw a few twists coming early, but there were others I wasn’t expecting. Everything leads up to a climax that is creative, suspenseful, and nicely wraps up everything from the trilogy. Of course, one reason I loved this series was the plentiful humor with is once again on display here. I can’t count the number of times I laughed, chuckled, or at least grinned over the course of this book. A few of the characters are downright silly, and they provide great laughs. There are some funny situations and witty banter as well. Circling back to the characters, author Christopher Healy has done a great job making all of the main characters likable. There were a few I didn’t care for as much in the first book, but by now I really do know them and think they are truly great. Even the silliest have had moments that showed true character. Liam, Gustav, Duncan, and Frederic, our four Princes Charming, are very different as well, so it is easy to keep them straight. With a book this long, I figured I would be happy to finish it in four days. I finished in three. That’s a testament to how quickly the pages fly by and how much I was enjoying it. I rarely wanted to put the book down. So if you’ve enjoyed these books, be sure to pick up The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw. And if you have yet to meet the League of Princes, start this charming series today.

BAH HA HA HA HA HA HA!!!! The book is hilarious! I loved the first two books in the series and they just keep getting better. It’s credit to Mr. Healy that he can keep coming up with great things for these characters to do. The the humor along with action and adventure in the book kept me turning the pages – **literally I read all 528 pages over 2 days – I couldn’t put the book down. Mr. Healy has a great writing style. Even for kids who aren’t that into reading will love the book because of the story. The Prince Charming characters in the story are great main characters. I love how they are all different personality-wise but all want the same thing; their honor back. The book isn’t just for boys. I think girls will love the story just as much. I think the idea of the story and this series is super imaginative and completely fun. This is one of those books where I wish the rating scale went higher than 5. *NOTE I got a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
