Look alike princes have been a trope in literature for a long time. There are a lot of books like this because the trope works. With the right writer wielding the pen, you can even get a classic. The best example of this that I can think of right now is The Man in the Iron Mask. It was my favorite story developed around this trope until I read The Wrong Prince by C.K. Brooke. Don’t get me wrong. They are different kinds of story at different levels of levity. The Wrong Prince is a lighter read. But in the final analysis, I just found it more fun and enjoyable. I like romance. I like swashbuckling, and I like drama. When you throw in well written combat scenes between two medieval armies, for me that’s a hard combination to beat. Good writing can take these elements to the top of the bestseller charts and I suspect that will happen in the case of The Wrong Prince.

I like everything about this novel, to be honest. I like the brothers. I like that they resemble each other, but that their personalities are very different. I like that they look out for each other. In many feudal stories, the brother bond is given a very bad rap. Two princes who act like good, normal brothers is refreshing. I like the plot and I like the writing style that moves it along. Everything was set at just the right level for this type of genre novel. I would pick up another C.K. Brooke novel in a heartbeat.
