Magic Girls Kira and the Space Princess

My review

I have a Magic Girl Heart Forever

I grew up loving Magic Girls.

I love this story inspired by the most amazing magic girls of Asian manga and anime pop culture. The author is creative and energetic, combining so many of my favorite elements: the magical accessories, the transformations, the fact they are schoolgirls and magical fighters, the evolution of characters and access to new powers, fabulous powers, the clothes, the back stories involving space, moon and royal family, let's not forget Catcorn is hilarious.

The expressions are fantastic, I can't forget how Sailor Moon just made me laugh with her expressions so much, and in each energetic page of this novel, I could feel the energy and I could listen to them speaking loud, shouting, speaking fast, laughing. I like the sketchy style of the author and how it works so well with the story. Yet, it's very relatable, not fitting in, being jealous of the popular girls, and thinking that all the good things happen to other people, but in the end, we just have to find our voice, where we belong, and our people. It's the power of friendship. I want to join them in Neo-Earth where all characters are unique and everyone is so diverse. I want wings, tails, and a familiar that looks like a cute Pokemon.

Loved this hilarious story. It's one of those that I collect to re-read when I'm overwhelmed and need to laugh and feel good again.

Hope to see more adventures.

Thank you TRb Tours and Netgalley (and publisher) for including me in this tour.

Genre: Young Adult Fantasy Romance

Publishing Date: March 5, 2024



An imprisoned prince. A vengeful queen. And a battle that will determine the future of Elfhame.

Prince Oak is paying for his betrayal. Imprisoned in the icy north and bound to the will of a monstrous new queen, he must rely on charm and calculation to survive. With High King Cardan and High Queen Jude ready to use any means necessary to retrieve their stolen heir, should Oak attempt to regain the trust of the girl he’s always loved, or remain loyal to Elfhame and hand over the means to end her reign-even if it means ending Wren, too…

With war looming and treachery lurking in every corner, neither Oak’s guile nor his wit will be enough to keep everyone he loves alive. He will have some terrible choices to make.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Holly Black comes the stunning blood-soaked conclusion to the Stolen Heir duology.
