The Stone Prince: Cheesy entertainment

fantasy book reviews science fiction book reviewsbook review gina showalterThe Stone Prince by Gena Showalter

A pre-warning: The Stone Prince contains cheesy content. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Jorlan En Sarr is from another planet. He’s also a prince on his home planet and a warrior who was sent to Earth in the form of a statue by his evil brother who just happens to be a sorcerer. On Earth, Jorlan is awoken from his stone state by Katie, a practical tomboy who renovates houses for a living. After Katie miraculously awakes Jorlan the next 2/3 of the book are scenes of heated sexual tension along with a little silliness (I laughed particularly hard when Jorlan tried to use a spatula as a weapon).

If you can overlook the fact that the main character is lusting after a seemingly-human-alien-prince-who-used-to-be-made-of-stone, it is actually a pretty entertaining read if only for the extreme randomness of the plot.

The Stone Prince is a girl book by every stretch of the imagination and one my fiance hounded me about the entire time I was reading. Expect the same if you do decide to pick it up, but it will get you through a long plane flight or a day at the beach quite easily, and may turn you, if not into a Gena Showalter fan, a curious follower at the least.
