A New Princess is Born

It has been generations since Cinderella and Snow White were written. Within that time, life, culture and woman have changed dramatically. We are now living in an era where a lot more is accepted. Maybe it’s time for a new kind of Princess. Legend of Katina is a coming of age story of a young royal and the lives she helps change as her legend unfolds.

As more and more LGBTQ stories are written, the more genres they begin to break into. The Legend of Katina is a new young adult fantasy novel by author K.A. Giangregorio. The book is a story of two kingdoms, a prophecy, and a forbidden love. The characters are engaging, unique, and have a great sense of relatability even through the fantasy setting.

Each page immerses you into the story, Giangregorio’s imagery brings the Kingdom of Tilly and the village of Katina to life in the readers mind, pulling you deeper and deeper into the story. The best part, however, is the fact that the two main love interest are both girls! Not only is the story amazing, but the novel is a lesbian love story that shows a lesbian couple as something normal and common. This is so important in helping de-stigmatize gay relationships as something taboo or needing to be hidden away from mainstream society and media.

         Giangregorio’s new book is one that you need to keep on your “Coming Soon” list. I know it is certainly on the top of mine.
