Coralina, also known as Coco, is the prettiest of the nine princesses and knows it, which means she can the win the heart of any man she wants no matter the consequences. With the Runa Realm facing the threat of bandits, disguised as noble men, who are attacking women and chopping off their hair, everyone is on edge except Coco. That is until when going on a walk with her latest conquest, Prince Luxley, he is attack by the carpenter Gord thinking he was saving her. In revenge for ruining her relationship with Luxley, Coco decides to punish Gord by making him fall in love with her and then breaking his heart, but will she be able to do this without losing her own heart.
Coralina is the second novella in the Nine Princesses series and is a light and enjoyable fantasy read; however, I did not like it as much as the first novella. The reason is that I really did not like Coco as she was selfish and spoilt; however, this was improved by the growth of her character. Another thing about this novella that I liked was that the story did not go the way I thought it would, meaning there was more surprises in Coralina than in Maelyn.
Coralina is an enjoyable novella and I am looking forward to see what Anita Valle does next in Heidel.
