Princess Seren has always expected her life to be one of duty and order, and her upcoming marriage alliance is no exception: she’ll sail to Bytamia to marry the crown prince as expected. But what she doesn’t expect is for the voyage to her new life to be delayed by the whims of an enchanted map and an adventure to a mystical island rumored to contain a legendary treasure. ...more

I started writing this book over two years ago when the idea of a seafaring voyage guided by a mischievous map first occurred to me. At the time it was scheduled to be the third book in the series…before a charming Dracerian crown prince demanded his story be told first. I’m grateful for this change in course, because the extra time with this idea has allowed this story to develop into something even greater than I initially imagined. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey, especially as I got to watc ...more

First off I'm going to warn you...there might be some serious gushing happening in this review! I loved it!!!! Absolutely and completely loved it!!!! And I'm not just saying that to say it. I truly mean it. I've really enjoyed all the books in this series and thought that the last book was my favorite, but nope. I was wrong. This book is my favorite!!! Camille Peters, it's ok that you waited to share Princess Seren's story after that Crown Prince from Draceria had to have his story first. Silly ...more

Yesssss! I’m a sucker for books that take place at sea, so I absolutely LOVE that this story takes place on a ship! The hero in this story is one of my favorites, and I absolutely love that we really get to know Seren. After coming across as not-so-friendly in past stories, you really come to love and sympathize with her in this one.

Also, the ending to this book is my favorite in the series!! The way everything wraps up just makes me so, so happy! (insert heart eyes!) AHH!

This was probably my favorite book in the series so far, and that is really hard to say because they are each unique and easy to love. With this book you don't immediately love the main character, Seren, but you understand her and like anything with layers, you discover a little bit more with every word you read. She is such a wonderful character, more three dimensional than most characters are. I love the world created by Peters, and this one was no exception. I can't write too much more withou ...more

Romance on the high seas

I've never heard of the fairy tale King Thrushbeard but that didn't make this tale any less interesting and entertaining. A romance on the high seas with a beautiful princess on a journey to marry the man betrothed her makes for a satisfying story.

Honestly, Seren, aka the Dragon Princess, wasn't a character I looked forward to reading about. She was cold in the other books, but that right there should have warned me. Everyone has a story and when examined on a deeper le

Received an ARC for a honest review.

Seren is the much hated Dragon Princess who embarks on what should be a boring and fruitless voyage to her new home country to meet Prince Ronan who she will marry. A map with a mind of it's own, a dashing captain and a romantic island all get in the way. As typical with Peter's books there are no big plot twist. Everything is very straight forward and you know what is going to happen. Where she has really developed through this series is creating the scenes a

I never thought I'd say this about Princess Seren's story, but Voyage is my favorite book in the series so far!

Princess Seren was a welcome surprise. In the previous books, she wasn't really one of the characters I was really excited about. She often appeared cold and indifferent, at best. However, in the first chapter, I started to root for her because she is far more than her earlier appearances suggest.

I loved the character interactions and relationships in this novel. I especially enjoyed t

Wow. This was by far Camille Peters' best installment of the series.

I was a little skeptical when I heard the infamous Princess Seren of Sortileya was the heroine for this book, but Peters amazed me. Entering her perspective was a major eye-opener for her character. There's a reason for her prickliness and it was beautiful to see the inner-workings of her brilliant mind. Seren's loyalness to her handmaiden was wondrous to behold, even at the start of this book.

I just finished Voyage last night and I just could not put it down! I have really enjoyed this series from Camille Peters and I was very excited to see what would happen with Seren's story. Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. Camille Peters hit the nail right on the head with this King Thrushbeard retelling, it had enough of the original fairytale elements while still being unique. I was very pleased with the way Seren's story played out. It was so well-written that I started tearing up a l ...more

Wow! This book was just as good as I thought it would be. I was so excited to read Voyage and it does not disappoint! Voyage is the 6th book in Camille Peter's Kingdom Chronicle series and is inspired by King Thrushbeard. We finally get to see behind the mask Seren has used throughout the first few books. Seren is finally going to meet her betrothed, but before she can get to know him she needs to travel to Bytamia. Seren sets out on a voyage to meet her betrothed, but in this voyage she may fin ...more

I love Camille Peters' books- they're like candy, just so sweet and feel-good types. I was super excited for this book since King Thrushbeard is a favorite fairy tale of mine and it's rare to find it re-imagined. Overall, I greatly enjoyed this book and the character development of Princess Seren, the infamous Dragon Princess. The setting on the sea and the enchanted islands were fascinating destinations, and the romance built naturall

I received an early copy of this book from the author to write and honest review.

I’m such a fan of Camille Peters and the world she’s building her Kingdom Chronicles series! I’ve been familiar with the fairytales she’s chosen and have loved reading her unique twist to each respectively. The sixth installment of her saga, “Voyage”, is a spin on the King Thrushbeard tale, of which I’m not familiar. This was such a fun read! Especially the last act of puzzles and riddles. I hope Camille includes t

I loved this book! It had the best combo of all things adventurous and romantic. I love books that take place on the sea because water truly calls to me. I love nothing better then sitting on a beach and just listening to waves. It’s truly my happy place.

I loved that there was growth in this book. That Seren didn’t start out perfect or end perfect for that matter. I found so many parallels to life and God in this book(sorry I’m getting deep). But I truly did. The storms of life are what make

Voyage is the latest book in The Kingdom Chronicles by Camille Peters. It is a retelling of the lesser-known fairy tale, "King Thrushbeard," about a conceited princess who thinks she is too good for any of her suitors. Though that concept makes it difficult for the story a likable protagonist, Seren's dignity was compensated with an unfortunate upbringing. It takes place on a ship while Seren is sailing to her new kingdom for her upcoming wedding to a stranger. I can see that Camille Peter did a ...more

I liked the other books much better.

The other books in the series are more to my taste. I don’t really care of for the King Thrushbeard fairy tale because it’s based on the idea that a woman has to exchange her physical servitude in marriage to another person in order to receive the goods and services she needs to live, while being subjected to prejudiced inheritance laws that strip her of the legal rights available to the men of that time. I do not like that this fairytale supports the idea tha

Voyage is Camille Peters’ aptly named reimagining of King Thrushbeard. The prickly, snobbish princess is here in the form of Seren. However, Ronan outright presents himself as the prince she is to marry at the very start of the novel. Not to mention, Seren had already chosen Ronan as her soon-to-be husband. The romance is at the forefront of the story, focusing on Seren and Ronan’s evolving feelings for each other. I enjoyed the fact that Peters’ takes the route of giving Seren a relatable reaso ...more

King Thrushbeard has always been one of my favorite fairytales. The story has a lot of elements readers can connect to, after all: a bitter heroine who has been mistreated, a misleading protagonist who is initially misjudged by superficial aspects of his character, a lot of incorrect first impressions and misunderstandings, but a physical journey that mirrors the spiritual and emotional one both MCs take. Ms. Peters' Voyage, then, is a stunningly beautiful homage to this simple yet simultaneousl ...more

I swear every book Camille Peters writes is better than the last, and Then love them all!
If you read Book 1, ‘Pathways’, you would have met Prince Aiden (The Dark Prince) and Eileen. Voyager is the story of “The dragon princess”, Princess Seren, the sister of Prince Aiden.

Voyager is a fairytale retelling of King Thrushbeard. To summarize. The King wants his daughter to marry, so he sets before her Princes and Kings, all of which she finds petty faults with, this includes King Thrushbeard. Frus

I was really looking forward to reading Voyage when I found out it would be centered around Seren, a character that had stood out to me during previous books in the series. Having read the story that it was based on, I was excited to see how the author would use that material to tell Seren's story. And on the whole, I greatly enjoyed this book. There's an enchanted map (which I always support the use of) and it t

If your looking for the next great fairytale romance with a dash of nautical adventure this book is for you! This book is loosely based off the little known fairy tale King Threshbeard. Intrigued I had to look it up. Once again I love how Camille takes the heart of the fairy tale to create her own wonderful and unforgettable romance.
Princes Seren is endearingly grumpy. I adored her almost from page one. She is just so relatable. I can totally understand where she is coming from and why she is a

Excellent Addition

This book was exactly what I needed right now. I love how we finally get to see Seren’s perspective. After seeing her in previous books, I was excited to see how Camille was going to portray Seren, formerly known as the Dragon Princess. The King Thrushbeard element was clearly visible, but it was far better than I expected (and my expectations were already high to begin with) since Camille made it her own! The pacing was good. I enjoyed watching as Seren’s many layers are slowl

OH MY GOSH! This was such a great book, I fell in LOVE! I was given the ARC and it was great! Ronan, he is such a dream boat, he is my type of guy in general. Dear Seren, all she needed was to be shown love. I can't wait to read Camille's next book. This plot line was delightfully unexpected.

Princess Seren is all about duty and a "this is how it is" mindset. She knows that she has to board a ship and marry someone she does not know. Hoping the marriage will be bearable, she powers through. The s

This book turned out to be a delightful surprise, easily becoming one of my favorites in the series. I was unfamiliar with the story it was based on, and that (I think) helped: I had no preconceived ideas about how it would turn out. That made everything seem new to me, and made the adventure feel more fun.

Seren's growth and transformation was unexpected. I imagined her story to be more like Cinderella's evil step-sister, but was happy to see the porcupine change and begin to soften her quills.

This started out promising with a prickly princess and a charming sea captain. It kinda devolved from there. While I appreciate the character development aspect of the story, the mc’s continuous mental refrain of distrust and self-loathing began to wear on me. I’m just glad there was a decent amount of external conflict to distract from the monotonous internal conflicts. By the time I started the book “Reflections,” I just couldn’t read anymore Peters books. My threshold tolerance for insecure h ...more

I loved this book. I was really looking forward to reading it and it didn't disappoint me. I was interested in seeing another side of Seren. I enjoyed learning why she acted the way she did and seeing her grow. In some ways, I saw myself in her which helped me connect to her as a character even more. Ronan was wonderful, though he had his flaws too.

Since the fairytale this story is based on isn't one I am super familiar with, I wasn't seeing connections to it as I read like I have with the other

Wow. This story ticks all the boxes for me. I was really eager to get to know Seren, as the idea of the antagonistic sister of Aiden getting her own love story was fascinating. I wondered how it could be managed. Well, let's say a very adventurous voyage and a charming sea captain worked an amazing bit of magic on the dour princess. ;)

I actually warmed to her from the first chapter, as getting to see inside that head of hers gave a lot of insights on the reason she was so prickly. I was rooting
