The world of politics is treacherous enough, but in Forland, it's deadly confusing. When her royal father is murdered by a greedy drug manufacturer, Princess Alita must step forward to take over the kingdom. Unfortunately, a freak magical mishap has trapped her in the body of Falis, the bounty hunter. Now Alita must stay disguised as a servant while the battle-savvy Falis sits on the throne in her body! Threatened by a coup and attacks from the outside, the fate of the kingdom is in the hands of Alita and Falis. Switched souls or not, there's another royal heir and Alita has to hold everything together for a little longer. As though this weren't enough to juggle, evil Professor Akamashi and his twin android assassins are out to cause some trouble of their own.

The gut-punch title sets the reader up for violent fantasy adventure, and the book lives up to the promise in a very entertaining way. Starting right out with outrageous-looking characters acting belligerently, the title princess leads bounty hunters who resemble a skeleton child and Hellboy. It all begins when a mad scientist and his twin robot girls kill the king in an attempt to take over the kingdom. During the princess's escape, she knocks heads with a female bounty hunter, which somehow causes them to swap spirits into each other's bodies. Most readers will know whether they're interested from the premise. If it sounds like a great excuse for action comedy, it is. Full pages keep events moving at a good clip as the two girls figure out their situation, fight giant monsters and the killer twins, and struggle to keep the kingdom together. There's a fun Buffy the Vampire Slayer in frilly dress feel, especially during the well-staged splash pages (and if you're willing to overlook the occasional panty shot). Fight scenes are dynamic, and there's humor in the conflict between the princess's looks and her rough-and-tumble behavior. (May)
